With no “hawkers”, which is what we call food vendors in Singapore, when I have a craving, I invent ways of creating what will satiate.
Nasi Lemak is rice dish that is cooked in/mixed with coconut milk. It is commonly sold in any foodcourt, hawker center & even coffee-shops … but alas, not where I live right now. I craved Pandan Nasi Lemak yesterday, so to the garden, then to the kitchen, then the cooking began.
Add 1 cup of water or what your “mini” blender allows, then blend away…
Add some salt and more water to your rice – up to the required (usual) level of cooking – then cover and press the “Cook” button. Pandan Nasi Lemak is in the making.
I decided to be really Singaporean and knocked up some dried anchovies and peanuts which usually accompanies this dish.
So what did I end up having for dinner?
*sigh* Hell hath no fury like … a woman’s craving.
