Nasi Kunyit


  • 400gm Glutinous rice
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • Salt
  • 20 white peppercorn
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 cloves
  • 2 pandan leaves, knotted
  • 100ml thick coconut milk


  1. Wash and soak glutinous rice in water. Mixed turmeric powder, cinnamon sticks and 1 tablespoon of salt for five hours or more.
  2. Drain well the soaked rice, then place in a steamer with peppercorns and pandan leaves and steam for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the steamer and add 1 teaspoon of salt to the coconut milk before mixing it to the rice. Mix well then steam for another 15-20 minutes. Fluff up the rice and continue steaming for another 15 minutes.
  4. Remove rice from steamer and set aside to cool.

The result? Mine failed cos I cook them in the rice cooker. Note in mind: STEAM them! No finishing picture too as the photographs turned out VERY unpleasant looking it deem unfit to be posted in jessielingdotcom! At least not to my standard la.

Must learn more food-camwhoring poses from Kamkuey!

    […] Fyi, this is not cooked by me. I prefered my broth to be rich in red wine and not so dialuted. However, Hokkien family would not miss on the Yellow Festive Rice or Nasi Kunyit which I cooked for the later evening banquet. […]
