After spending a morning combing the shopping centres at Suria KLCC with time to for coffee at Starbucks on the ground floor, we regrouped on Level 4 for lunch at Madam Kwan’s Restaurant which specializes in local Malaysian favourites and traditional Malaysian food.
Nasi Bojari is from Indonesia where the rice is meant for royalty, and is layered red, yellow and white. “We can’t do it here,” said Madam Kwan. So she did the next best thing — frying the rice with bits of chicken, garlic and dried prawns and lightly tinging the rice with red, and yellow from turmeric. “It’s rice for royalty,” said Kwan, which is why the Indonesians who come to dine have not had it before. There little bursts of flavours in the rice from the ingredients in it. — NST
