Steamed Nasi Uduk


600g rice, wash and soak overnight in 1 tsp salt water
450g grated coconut, remove skin before grating; add 3½ cups water and extract an equal amount of milk
3-4 fragrant screwpine leaves

  • Boil water in steamer. Drain rice, put in a steaming tray, pour 2 cups coconut milk and break screwpine leaves over it. Steam for 15-20 minutes, then uncover, stir rice, add 1½ cups coconut milk, stir and continue steaming. After 15 minutes, stir rice again and continue cooking for another 15 minutes.
  • To serve: put the cooked Nasi Uduk on a platter, sprinkle shredded omelette over it and garnish with cucumber slices. If making little omelettes, cut each in half and arrange them around the platter of rice.
