Nasi Lemak, Tea Tarik, Roti Canai & Puttu Mayam - Some Popular Malaysian Breakfast Dishes

Malaysian Breakfast Dishes

Breakfast is a major meal of the day, not a neglected snack. Dine on fragrant nasi kandar, fish curry served with meat in chilli sauce and boiled eggs. Or try the nasi dagang, glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk, served with fish curry, coconut sambal, and cucumber pickle.

Excellent and inexpensive food can be obtained virtually anywhere in Malaysia, largely because of the strength and ubiquity of food stalls.

Whether it be in villages, small towns, or big cities, visitors can find stalls offering mouth - watering treats. Dining at a cart or streetside stand may sound plain and piecemeal, but in Malaysia eating food at the roadside stall is a much - loved practice.

The best stalls are as popular and as crowded as any permanent restaurants.

Nasi Lemak

This is a popular Malaysian breakfast dish.Rice is cooked in coconut milk and pandan ( screwpine ) leaves for an aromatic fragrance and creamy taste. It is served with ikam bilis ( anchovies ) , sambal ( chilli paste , usually also includes onions and anchovies ), fried or hard boiled egg, fried peanuts and cucumber slices. Other accompaniments - chicken curry, rendang ( a dry curry with spiced meat ), fried chicken. Best eaten with a glass of freshly ?? pulled ?? teh tarik.

Teh Tarik

A must try milk drink

Literally meaning ?? pull tea??, the drink is prepared using outstretched hands to pour piping hot tea from a mug into a waiting glass ( tea drink that is poured and ?? pulled ?? back and forth repeatedly between two jugs at a height to create a frothy layer ). The higher the pull the thicker the froth. It is believed that the technique of stretching the tea helps it to mix well with another essential ingredient, the condense milk.

Roti Canai

Roti Canai

The all - time breakfast favorite of Malaysians. Made from wheat - flour dough, roti canai sometimes incorporates beaten egg and diced onions for a crispier pancake. This fluffy pastry is actually great for any meal, and is typically eaten with dhall and curry of your choice ( usually chicken or fish ).

Puttu Mayam

Also known as string hoppers, this is an Indian rice flour steamed snack that resembles vermicelli. Have it sweet with white or palm sugar and grated coconut, or savoury with your choice of curry. As soon as you buy; the coconut will spoil if you leave it for too long.
