Nasi Lemak Cookery Challenge and Recipe // Jessie & Claud // Malaysia Travel Vlog [CC]


This consists of The second accompaniment is baked tumeric chicken We prefer to use thighs, but I like to use chicken wings because Nasi Lemak to me is about combining several components together You know it’s not not so much just anything Over you know overdoing the rest You want it to combine that’s the Nasi Lemak okay and Nasi lemak actually it’s a breakfast started as a breakfast where you have just arrived a little bit eventually Some cucumber Sambal, a bit of sambal and an egg. Today I think they sell them streets for about a dollar really, okay, so for me when you Use chicken wings, you are not Overtaking the dish Yeah, yeah, okay, do you don’t have to nasi lemak doesn’t have to be surface chicken But it it’s really really good when it is The baked tumeric chicken we use ginger chicken rings garlic Chicken stock Because garlic really works in a way where You know stimulates you to be very active Anything actually if you want to soften your garlic, your onions First the key is salt Yeah, you want to deglaze so It has the ability I think because of the water and the granules In Malaysia You know turmeric has healing powers. It’s known to be anti-aging, it’s very rejuvenating, but in Malaysia Sometimes you find that the ladies They have colour in the fingernails, but it’s not Barnish is actually turmeric So when you see this it’s either the girl belongs to a family where somebody is getting married Or she is a bride Okay, so that’s how you tell They like to deep-fry and of course it’s really nice and yummy but sometimes we have to offer healthier alternatives I’m going to use what we call Beauty Water, the pH is 5.5. If your eggs happened to break while you are boiling them the pH of the water will prevent any bacteria from entering into the egg It’s really good. So when you are boiling eggs you want to have water about an inch or an inch and a half above the eggs And then what you do is that for these size, considered medium size You wanna put on a fire with Just cold water like this, boil it. As soon as it boils you time it for 3 minutes And then you take it off, cover with a lid for 15 minutes Then pour it out 15 minutes then more cold water. That is because when you eat eggs you want to have the protein in the eggs now For us when you make Nasi Lemak, when you cut the eggs, sometimes there is a dark ring around the yolk That would mean that the proteins is hard so you don’t want to have that happen Moving on to the ikan bilis It’s the best thing make a lot of it and keep it around And it’s so good in a pan fry onions and garlic Which really is the rice. It’s just the rice bit. This is a chore Every child has to learn, the first thing The youngest one, poor thing, is the one that will end up doing it Okay and How we learn is We have to wash our rice that’s what we do, but I have already washed this rice So we have to do this, we are trained we have to do this three times meaning by doing this until the water is no longer very cloudy yeah So you see, it’s a bit cloudy. It means there’s starch Claudia: I remember doing this
Jen: Yo do right When you are young it is such a chore when you are really small doing this at five, six That that’s how we are , Asians A good well-rounded child knows how to cook rice If you don’t know how to cook rice we’ll go like ‘UH?’ Yeah, so this is how we tie the pandan leaves, we do it like this so that it cracks Smell it Maida: Wow!
Jen: So these are the things that we need Boil on medium heat until the liquid is absorbed Having a really good time so far! We’ve done the Fast &Furious salad tumeric chicken the anchovies I really like the anchovies mixed with peanut and then we just did the rice, and then we’re gonna do the Sambal next Really good. I also love that Jen keeps giving us amazing facts about Food in Malaysia. We are learning so much. Now I know that also Claudia, as the youngest person in her family had do the rice the Rice Girl Claudia: This is going to be very close
Jessica: Very looking forward to this, so hungry! Bab’s Sambal or chlli based sauce is amazing. It’s so good, but oh my goodness. It takes so long to make For the Sambal use there are a lot of ingredients J: That does taste really good Babs: And its not as spicy Thats so fun I see yeah with the sugar it cuts down oh The heat really got to me so we went for dip in the fountain Cannot stress to you enough how tasty and wonderful this meal really is we can’t wait to take this recipe home with us and cook it every time we miss Malaysia Thank you so much to Jen and Babs who run Jen’s Homegrown Cooking Academy for being absolutely wonderful hosts and teachers If you live in KL or plan to visit do not hesitate to join their class as you’ll have so much fun And learn loads about Malaysia, and they didn’t mind us taking lots of video and lots of photos My friend and sign language interpreter for the last nine years Ruthanne tagged along to make the class more accessible Hope you’ve enjoyed this video that you’d learn something from it and it you think Nasi Lemak is just as tasty as I do if you’re new here come have a look around see any other videos you might like and Don’t forget to subscribe

  1. YASS

  2. When are you going back? Awh don't go back early. I was going to go to Kuala Lumpur to see you in 2 weeks! Please tell me when you are going back. Thank you! <3 Also, I live in Sarawak 😀

  3. It looks so yummy 😍

  4. One plus side to being a single mom….. I often am up all hours of the night when she’s teething or fussy so that means: I GET TO BE ONE OF THE FIRST TO SEE TRAVEL VLOG FROK JESSICA AND CLAUDIA! Yay !

  5. I'm glad you make more recipe videos, so I can learn cook haha. I've tried nasi lemak once-or-twice, it's delicious, tastes like nasi uduk in Indonesia.

  6. I just want to say I have been enjoying all of your vacation videos, they make me feel good!!

  7. Such a fun idea to step into the fountain to cool off! Thank you for sharing your cooking class! Always so excited to see a video from you!

  8. another great video, delicious and spicy 😉 I really enjoy this kind of story telling, big thumbs up from me !

  9. Hi Jessica and Claudia, what a wonderful video with recipes and tips behind cooking from the chef Jen.
    Thanks for making this video. I was just wondering this question, hopefuly it’s not too rude or ignorant of me. I thought if you wear hearing aids you will be able to hear, and so you don’t need to have an interpreter. I noticed that you didn’t wear them this time.

  10. I know you still have to be super careful about what you eat in Malaysia, but it's really nice to see you trying a little bit of everything, and having things like noodles and rice, because nine months to a year ago you weren't able to eat any of that. I hope you're proud of how far you've come, because you look healthier and your energy seems better.

  11. Thanks for sharing. Looks so yummy

  12. so thankful for another video! As someone that struggles with chronic depression, your videos and attitude inspire me to wake up early (woke up at 6:50 am today) and feel happy about life! The cooking class looks like so much fun! Maybe one day I will start my own videos, thanks Jess and Claud!

  13. coincidence that i had nasi lemak for lunch today 😂

  14. I need to get nasi lemak for dinner now.

  15. Can u do a vidoe on how to come out plz

  16. What an amazing experience for you & esp. Ruthann’s daughter!! Did you take them with you for the whole 7 weeks, because the resorts you have stayed in have looked so romantic, not somewhere a teenager would want to stay with her mum, lol! I also cannot imagine what it cost to pay for both of their travels, accommodations & of course Ruthann’s signing services. Here in the US we, (as a doctors office), are responsible for providing an interpreter for free, so we foot the bill. The ASL interpreters charge for a minimum of 3hrs, & cost between $125-150p/hr! So you can see it adds up quickly! Anyway, Jan & Babs were absolutely lovely & those will be memories to cherish for a lifetime! Thank you for sharing, & good luck recreating the Sambal…lol! Much love you two!! 💕😘

  43. Great to see the interpretation by the bsl interperior was very nice to see I do injoy watching you both mske nice food such as this

  44. “A well-rounded child has to know how to cook rice.” That was how it worked in my family. We’re multi-racial Filipino and American. Mama would make you cook the rice everyday until you learned how to do it right. 😆 How fun that you got to learn! The finished dish looks delicious.

  45. You seem a lot more willing to do stuff..
    I'm just saying..

  46. Great video. 😙

  47. As a Malaysian student who's currently studying in the UK, I miss the original Nasi Lemak sooooo much and this video's making me drool. No matter how hard I try to make it according to the recipe my grandma gave to me, it'll never beat hers.

  48. OMG you got a BSL interpreter in Malaysia? That's awesome

  53. oh! I just noticed. You shared this on my birthday. 🙂

  54. Goodnight you two.
