The nasi lemak bought from 3rd. mile market at Sungai Maong cost RM1.50 per packet. From the snapshot here you can imagine how the taste is like.

Ingredients to eat with nasi lemak:

2 - Next wash and clean the rice and put it in the rice cooker. Add in together the santan and tied in knot pandan leaf.
3 - Let the rice to be cooked in the rice cooker and the light indicator button will auto pop up.
