Rice Cooker Recipe - Nasi Lemak. Rice is cooked with shallots, fresh ginger, coconut milk, fenugreek seeds and pandan leaves. You can leave the pandan leaves out but they impart a wonderful fragrance. You can find them in most well-stocked Asian markets.
Dried fruit and wild rice have always been favored during the holidays, but you can make this dish anytime you want to add a bit of sweetness to your meal!
