Hot, savoury nasi padang

If you have a penchant for Indonesian cuisine, Nasi Padang might be your cup of tea. SURYANI DALIP tells you where to look for this savoury dish.

MOST of us are familiar with Nasi Padang, a Minang cuisine that originates from West Sumatra, Indonesia.

Since Minang people are famous for their strong stomachs, most of the dishes are very hot.
Those with a weak stomach may not be able to digest the gulai lemak daging, rendang sapi, gulai lemak ayam kampung, udang balado, sambal lada hijau and sambal tumis udang.
The main ingredients in Padang cuisine are candlenuts, cloves, cardamom, star anise and coconut milk.
Instead of piling everything on to the rice, each of the dishes is served separately in small plates. You only pay for the dishes that you have eaten.
