Yup, we made a nasi lemak burger once. It’s a great way to eat nasi lemak and sure to get people talking if you ever serve one of these. Cooking with the pulut rice we were able to shape the rice into buns giving it a bit of burger appeal. Think of it as our own version of yakiniku rice burger with snazzy insides.
Nasi lemak meets the burger..
Serves 2 people
Use ready made, jarred sambal for a convenient fix.
1 Cup pulut rice
Harboiled egg, sliced
Ikan bilis, fried
1. Cook the pulut rice as per package instructions and set aside to cool.
2. Coat chicken breast with a pinch each of cumin, coriander, paprika, black pepper and salt. Sear and cook the chicken.
3. To assemble form the pulut rice into ‘buns’. On the first bun top it with the chicken, the sambal tumis, cucumber, sliced egg and fried ikan bilis.
4. Top with the second pulut bun.
