Kitchen World Tour: Brunei

Main: Nasi Lemak
Dessert: Mango with Sticky Rice

Nasi Lemak is an ethnic Malay favourite, with Brunei, Malaysia and Singapore all laying claim to its origin. Spicy anchovy sambal with Crispy Fried Turmeric Chicken and Coconut Rice, served on banana leaves. With a lack of fresh banana leaves in supermarkets, I’ve started harvesting banana leaves myself. Firstly at neighbours’ places but now from trees growing in (semi) public areas.

I used this Mango with Sticky Rice recipe for dessert.

Next Up: Bulgaria.
