In lieu of the recent NOC FoodKing CNY video, we saw many audience requesting for Bak Kwa recipes from renowned celebrity chef, Shen Tan, after her spontaneous comment about including our signature Mala Xiang Guo Bak Kwa into many household CNY dishes. Thus, we decided to reach out to her and fulfill your dreams of Bak Kwa recipes for Chinese New Year.
Here we have a local favourite, Nasi Lemak with Fyre's Mala Xiang Guo Bakkwa. We all know what makes this dish is the rice and of course, the potent sambal chilli, and you'll be blessed to know that Chef is willing to share her recipe for the rice here.
1 kg jasmine rice
1kg coconut milk (you may use Heng Guan fresh coconut milk)
1 large red onion, sliced thinly
1 stalk of lemongrass smashed
1 tbs salt
1 tsp fenugreek
2 slices of ginger
5 pandan leaves, tied into a knot
1 tbs coconut oil
1 tsp lime juice
1. Soak jasmine rice overnight (minimum of 4 hours) in water, ensuring that the water level covers the rice entirely as the rice absorbs water.
2. Mix the lemongrass, ginger, onion and pandan through the soaked rice and spread it evenly over a steamer tray and steam over high heat for 40-50 minutes, until rice is cooked.
3. Mix the salt and fenugreek together with the coconut milk in a large bowl that can contain the coconut mixture and cooked steamed rice.
4. Once the rice is cooked from the first steaming, remove from the steamer and heat and mix it thoroughly in the coconut milk, salt & fenugreek mixture while it is still hot and steaming. Let the rice and coconut mixture stand for 30 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed by the rice.
5. Return to steamer and steam for another 40 minutes, until the rice is cooked and all moisture is cooked off.
6. Drizzle the lime juice and coconut oil over the rice, fluff up rice and serve.
7. Heat Fyre Bakkwa and serve with nasi lemak
Or you can buy a packet of nasi lemak - and serve with a slice of Fyre Bakkwa ;)
