Nasi Dagang & Gulai Ikan Tongkol

Ok, my curry does not look as red as Wendy's one :) but the taste is still fine to me :) maybe I've added to less dried chilli or too much ginger & galangal :) It is not too spicy and I loved the sourish gravy, goes very well with Nasi Dagang as commented by my hubby :) Ooooo yes I loved the chewy steamed rice!! 

Nasi Dagang Terengganu
Ingredient (I halved the recipe, for full recipe refered to the link above!)
  • 200gm jasmine rice
  • 80gm glutinous rice
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp julienned ginger
  • 1/2 tbsp fenugreek
  • 100ml coconut milk (undiluted)
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar

Method (I did it my way, u can refer to Wendy's method)
  1. Wash and soak both rice together for 5 hours.
  2. Drain rice and place onto a steamer tray lined with muslin cloth. Steam for 15mins and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Wash the rice and drain. Pour the rice back into the muslin cloth. Steam for another 10mins.
  4. Place fenugreek, shallots, ginger, coconut milk, salt & sugar into a mixing bowl.
  5. Pour the hot rice back into the bowl and toss gently to combine.
  6. Steam the rice again for 10mins. 
  7. Rest the rice for 30mins before serving with tuna curry (recipe as per below)

This is the raw tuna fish I got from wet market, about 1kg+ costing $7
