Breakfast Of Childhood

In continuation of previous' post. Last Sunday we went and be a part of Milo Breakfast Movement, I went for a 7K run and then the family enjoyed some breakfast (and a whole lot of Milo drinking) in UPM.

What's your favourite breakfast?

I haven't had this often nowadays but I love these two dishes. It's something I always had during the weekends when I was growing up in my hometown in Raub, Pahang.
 Laksam.

Not to be confused with Laksa Assam. Flat rice noodle served with a generous serving of white fish-based gravy(the white colour comes from coconut milk) and topped with ulam or raw vegetables such as shredded cucumbers, sliced long beans, bean sprouts, daun kesum... and then to make it tastier, a dollop  of sambal belacan.
Nasi Impit.

No need to eat with satay.

Just the compressed rice (hence the name impit) and peanut sauce.

Even for me, I only cook this once a year, for Hari Raya.

Had these recently and boy was I happy. ^^

  3. I think I ate this in Thailand before. They look so similar except that it was slightly yellowish. Ramadhan is coming and I am sure they will sell Laksam at the food bazaar.

  12. Oooo...laksam!!! Kelantan specialty. Tried once here - managed to buy from my kampung stall - Kelantan lady made. Nice! Never saw it on sale since. Nasi impit, not my favourite. I prefer ketupat.

    1. Ketupat harder and takes more time to cook. Nasi Impit easier. ;)

  17. All these food reminded me of my Malay colleague's Raya Open House party. She would serve us Laksam, Nasi Impit and Rendaing Ayam. I actually like lemang more.

    1. Lemang is more sinful to eat.

      Plus more tedious to make. ;-)
