Only in Kelantan...

Friday, October 24, 2008

sorry about the ugly picture, it was dark so the picture is also dark so i've editted it for clearer view...

Have you ever heard of Nasi Tumpang? I never seen it else where but Kelantan. it is rice packed in a cone-shaped banana leaf. A pack of Nasi Tumpang consists of an omelette, meat or chicken or fish floss, chicken or shrimp curry and sweet gravy. By the way it was packed i suppose it was meant for travellers or at least used to... even now we rarely see this nisi tumpang being sold in Kelantan. I must say its getting hard to find these days.

However i was told that the best Nasi Tumpang was in Pasir Hor,Kelantan but you need to buy them before 9am otherwise you'll be dissapointed! As you can see in the not so great picture that its in a con shape. Inside there's mashed or mushed rice...its a very soft rice compected with layers of other food like shrimp curry, fish floss, some omelette and sweet gravy... i love this nasi tumpang wanted to learn this but i dunno anyone who can teach me *SAD* the ingrediens are easy but the hard part is the packing it into a con shape ...

This is how the inside looks like, you can see layers of food...the floss the shrimp curry (the yellow stuff you see in the middle) and down the bottom its the omelette (its the pale yellow thingie)
