Nasi Lemak Burger

by Foodster X on Thu, October 16, 2014

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.

You can also substitute the chicken patty with beef. A rendang patty seems like a good idea...
