This recipe is inspired by a 7 Eleven product. It sounds weird but wait till you try making your own Nasi Lemak Onigiri. It's a far cry from those you get at 7 Eleven and much much tastier. I saw a video online that mixes hard boiled eggs, chopped fried ikan bilis and peanuts into the rice. I am only adding in chopped fried white baits and fried peanuts. I like it and I am sure you would, too.
Nasi Lemak Onigiri
1 cup Japanese rice
1 cup thick coconut milk
1 pandan leaf
1/8 tsp salt
50 gms chopped white baits and fried peanuts
2 tbsp sambal chilli for brushing
Wash the rice and add in the coconut milk and pandan leaf and cook rice in a pot.
When rice is done. Fluff it up and let it cool for a minute.
Add in the chopped ingredients and mix well.
Shape rice into triangles and set aside. This recipe makes 4 medium onigiris.
Heat up a frying pan and grease with a little oil.
Brush the Onigiri with the sambal chilli and grill till crispy.
Carefully turn the Onigiri to the other side and grill till crispy.
Serve Onigiris hot when it is crispy outside and soft inside.
