Nasi Dalca

This is a chuck-everything-in-the-bamboo-and-let them-get jiggy-with-each-other kinda recipe. It cooks super fast too because unlike lemang where there’s only the rice to soak up the liquid, here there are lentils and meat to help it along.


"Don'tcha want some dalca?"




Ingredients

2 Tbs Oil/ Butter
300 g Beef/ Lamb, cut into small chunks
1 cup Dhal/ Lentils, soaked
2 cups Rice
4 Shallots, chopped
2 Garlic, chopped
1 Tomato, chopped
2 Star Anise
1 Cinnamon Stick
4 Cloves
1 Tsp Mustard Seeds
1 ½ Tbs Beef Curry Powder
A sprig of Curry Leaves
½ Tbs Salt
1 Tsp Sugar
4 ½ cups Water

Serves...

Lentils add a nice earthiness while the beef flavours the rice making this a wonderful lunchtime dish.



Method

1. In a mixing bowl, except water, mix all the ingredients together.
2. Insert / roll banana leaf into the bamboo. Use enough to cover the sides of the bamboo.
3. Fill in 2/3 of the bamboo with the combined ingredients and pour water in till it reaches the top of the bamboo.
4. Repeat this step till all the ingredients are used.
5. Let it steam for about 30 minutes.
