After my trip to Bandung and having tried Nasi Uduk for the fiest time, I decided I’d make the dish at home. Many people have said Nasi Uduk isnthe Indonesian version of Nasi Lemak. Partially so. While the condiments may more or less be the same, the taste is not. While Nasi Lemak rice is fragrant from the use of coconut and pandan leaves, Nasi Uduk’s rice is fragrant from the spices used. In any case, I love both Nasi Lemak and Nasi Uduk and reckon when I do retire one day, will be making both often as family dishes.
In the meantime, make the sambal tumis and fry the tempe, tahu and chicken.
And then assemble all nicely together! In Indonesia, nasi uduk is also served with sambal kacang, peanut sauce.
