EID ADHA SPECIAL - BEEF RICE/ NASI DAGING


I really had a hectic weekend and hardly find the time to update my blog. Thank God today I am a bit relax and would like to share with you on Beef Rice/ Nasi Daging that I made during the recent Eid Adha. This dish is popoluar among the Middle Eastern, India and Pakistan. Also know as Nasi Arab/ Arab rice, the recipe involves beef pieces cooked in rice.The spice and condiment used in beef rice include, but are not limited to, ghee, nutmeg, mace, min, pepper, cloves,cardamom, cinnamon, bay leaves, coriander, mint leaves, ginger, onions, and garlic

The difference between Beef Rice and Briyani is that this rice is cooked together with the meat while briyani dan meat and the rice are prepared separately and layered. They may look identical but the processes are different.

Best serve with dalca - dhal curry, cucumber salsa and tamarind sauce.

Walaupun cuti baru hari inilah dapat bernafas dan update blog. Bila anak-anak berkumpul biasala masak...masak...masak..Nasi Daging aka Nasi Arab ni adalah menu Aidil Adha baru-baru ini, saya hidangkan bersama dalca sayur dan salsa timur. Buat sedikit air asam cicah bersama daging. Cukup untuk hari pertama. Nasi Daging ini lebih kurang sama dengan Nasi Briyani, cuma bezanya antara dua ini ialah Nasi Briyani dimasak secara berasingan dengan kuah daging briyani, Nasi Daging ini pula daging dimasak sekali dengan nasi.Walaupun daging direbus dahulu tetapi semasa menumis nasi daging rebus ini masukkan semula ke dalam periuk dan dimasak sekali seolah-olah daging ini tertanam dalam nasi. Cukup enak, lemak dan berempah.  Kalau disebelah utara ini daging dalam nasi ini kemudian dicicah bersama air asam....jadi taklah muak sangat nanti.
