I watched Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservation the other day. I would really like him to come to Batang Berjuntai and taste the nasi korek-korek. So, what is nasi korek-korek actually? It is actually chicken meat, cut into pieces, and cooked with ginger. Then, why is it called nasi korek-korek? Because in Batang Berjuntai and Kuala Selangor, the chicken is hid under the rice that you have to dig into the rice to get the chicken, hence the name korek-korek which when loosely translated becomes dig-dig. XD Why am I writing about this? Because today I ate chicken cooked with ginger, rice and tomyam. A bad attempt to imitate nasi korek-korek.
I cooked that egg. That’s the only thing that I’m good at anyway.
