This time we visit Nasi Lemak Korner – Como. It has Malaysian taste. I came here with my husband and my two boys, they are really fans of Asian food. The place is nice and quite cozy. We order nasi goreng and nasi lemak. Those foods that we ordered are really nice. And for the drinks we ordered raspberry mocktail and three layer tea. Love them both. They sometimes have special menu and also special dessert. Lately i’d like to try their durian strudel, but you have to call them first to make sure they have it on the day.

Ketoprak is a vegetarian dish from Jakarta, Indonesia, consists of tofu, beansprout, boiled egg, rice cake, and rice vermicelli served in peanut sauce.
Why people call it ketoprak ? According to Betawi tradition, ketoprak was actually derived from the acronym of its ingredients; which are ket from ketupat, to from toge, and prak from digeprak (crushed), which describes the method on grounding garlic, and peanut granules together to create the peanut sauce.
When I don’t know what to cook today, this one always win my heart. Simple and easy. I always have instant rice cube and fried peanut/peanut butter at home. As Indonesian have lots of food come along with peanut sauce that;s the reason i always keep peanut butter or fried peanut at home. In every recipes that need fried peanut, you could substitute it with peanut butter and sometimes it;s level up the taste. Or you can mixed it like using half amount fried peanut and half amount peanut butter so it’s still have it;s original taste.
Let’s just try the recipe now!
