Nasi kuning (or yellow rice) is traditionally served with the requisite perkedel kentang, ayam ungkep, telur dadar gulung, kerupuk udang (shrimp crackers), quick lalap, and sambal.
So, everything has to be timed.
If you start cooking at 8 o’clock in the morning, sometimes around 11 o’clock everything will be done and ready and looking super yummy.
2 cup rice
2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 Indonesian bay leaf
1 kaffir lime leaf
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon sugar
100 ml coconut milk
3 cup water
- Place all ingredients in the rice cooker and turn on the power.
- Press the “cook” or “white rice” button.
- When the machine indicates that the rice is ready (usually a “warm” light will turn on), open the lid, fluff the rice, remove lemongrass, bay leaf, and kaffir lime leaf.
- Close the lid again and let the rice rest for another 10 minutes before serving.
