Indonesia has a lot of traditional delicious food. I have a lot of favorite dishes from Indonesia. But if I need to choose one, I prefer Nasi Bungkus Padang as my favorite Indonesian Food. When I was sick two years ago, I could not eat it because it contained fat and cholesterol. I needed to do fat diet, so I couldn’t eat it for six month 😦 .
Nasi bungkus is simple white rice with favorable main dish as chicken, beef, or vegetable. The different between nasi bungkus Padang with other nasi bungkus is it serve with cucumber, cassava leaf, jack fruit curry, and other dish that you like such as fried egg, chicken, rendang, cancang, fish, or tunjang. Maybe there are some food you do not know such as rendang, cancang, or tunjang. Basically, jack fruit, cancang, and tunjang are cooked with herbs, chili, and coconut milk. The difference is the meat that you use. Cancang use lamb and tunjang use cow foot that boiled until soft. I often buy nasi bungkus Padang with grilled chicken.
I love to eat nasi Padang at home rather than dine in. The taste is more delicious when you eat it for take away. Beside that, if you take away nasi bungkus Padang, the portion is huge. But I still can finish it
*gembul*. Looking at this picture makes me want this nasi bungkus Padang again.
