Nasi Uduk or Scented Coconut Rice from Jakarta (Betawi) is a great pair with Ayam Bakar Bumbu Rujak (Barbequed Chicken with Chili Coconut Sauce)

As you may know from my previous post that these two dishes, Nasi Uduk and Ayam Bakar Bumbu Rujak were made in hurry. In 4.5 hours, I was done cooking, taking some shots, cropping and sending the pictures to Shelly.

I think this is my third time making nasi uduk for the past two weeks. First, I craved for nasi uduk around 11 PM last week with combination method on a stove and in a rice cooker, then I tried to make nasi uduk on a stove only, but it was failed. I decided no more making nasi uduk on stove only method, since I am always succeed on making this with a rice cooker or combination those two.

Nasi Uduk

2 cups jasmine rice, washed and drained
1 lemongrass, take the white part and bruised
1 tsp coriander seed powder
2 pandan leaves, knotted
3 Indonesian bay leaves
1 cup thick coconut milk
2 cup broth/water
salt as desired

1. In a rice cooker, add all ingredients except rice and bring to a boil.

2. Add rice and cook in a rice cooker until done.

  3. I was made this for dinner tonight, and it was delicious! I was a little nervous it wouldn't have enough depth of flavor, but it turned out scrumptious. even my meat-loving husband liked it. I'm trying to do several meatless meals a week both for our health and our budget, so I really appreciate easy, nasi uduk – betawinese scented coconut rice meals. thank you for shearing your post.

  4. Thanks for posting an easy recipe of nasi uduk. I tried it to day with empal balado (bought from Indonesian groceries store) yum. It's very easy to prepare and taste very authentic. I'll be making this very often now.
