Recipe : Nasi Daging


Something simple and delicious but not easily found. Not many restaurant or buffet serve this. Mom usually make this rice during ramdhan or raya especially raya haji. It's a very simple flavoured rice with tender chunks of beef in it and can be paired with curry, dhal, or acar. 

During the cooking process, I watched everything what mom is doing. I ask her, how much you put that, how much this, but she could never give me a satisfying answer. A handful of this, a pinch of that..  you know :p

At the end, I managed to get the recipe from her and love to share it here.
