nasi lemak with fried egg and spicy dried squid sauce

You can't separate nasi lemak and roti canai from a malaysian.Almost , erm.. wait , almost is not a correct word for it , Everybody.. in malaysia grew up eating nasi lemak and roti canai and it had obtain an elevated status as a social food in malaysia , kind of wine as a social drink in the west.Eating nasi lemak or roti canai alone at home doesn't feel as delicious as eating with your buddies at a stall while talking about politics and current affair.Nasi lemak or coconut milk rice is best eaten with a spicy dried squid sauce and fried egg with a sprinkle of anchovies on top . It's not actually your dieticien food of choice and the reason why it is eaten on breakfast just minutes before you burnt back the calories by jogging , nah!!! who am i kidding , a heavy dose of nasi lemak in the morning will surely make you doze off afterwards , ha ha.
