First time try

I always read about nasi kerabu in blogs, today is the first time i try. What is nasi kerabu, does blue colour rice means nasi kerabu? So i went online and this is what i found (explanation by wikipedia).

Nasi kerabu is a Malay rice dish, a type of nasi ulam, in which blue-coloured rice is eaten with dried fish or fried chicken, crackers, pickles and other salads. The blue color of the rice comes from the petals of Clitoria ternatea (butterfly-pea) flowers (kembang telang) used in cooking it.

My nasi kerabu comes with crackers, anchovies, satay and egg omelette. The satay meat is very tender and the satay sauce flavourful. For drinks, i ordered ice lemon tea.

Why there is no ulam (raw vegetables) in your nasi kerabu?

Mun: Yalor, there are no raw vegetables in their nasi kerabu, no dried fish or fried chicken too, only satay, crackers and anchovies

Libby said...

Mun: It would be nicer if they minus the anchovies and include the ulam (salad)

A fusion with the satay and anchovies. Like nasi lemak with exception of blur rice. You should try the authentic nasi kerabu, with salted egg, crackers, fried chicken, ulam and sambal. You will love it!

The authentic Nasi Kerabu originated from the East Coasts of Malaysia like Kelantan and Terengganu. I have eaten them there and trust me, they are so delicious that sent me looking for them in KL. I found one in a restaurant nearby my home and served by a Kelantanese boss. At least you have some idea now how it looks like. Taste wise, you can explore other stalls in Singapore to compare.
