Turmeric Glutinous Rice


Pulut Kuning Beef Rendang (Turmeric glutinous rice with beef cooked with spices and coconut milk) - MYR9.90+ 6% GST (no service charge)= MYR10.50 nett at Belanga. The small portion is just right for me and the beef rendang is tasty. I like to eat glutinous rice cooked this way too, just as I like to eat lo mai kai.

Update (28 February 2015 Sunday): price is still MYR10.50 nett with more raw vegetables (salad) this time. The beef rendang is a bit on the salty side but the glutinous rice (pulut) is a little bit too hard, I prefer it to be softer so maybe no more next time until I have forgotten about the taste. I felt too full after 2 hours that it was very uncomfortable for me.

  1. Not really used to glutinous rice cooked this way as I find them too sticky

  2. I had this at a nyonya food stall at a coffee shop near Jaya Supermarket - 1986 and I loved it so so so much! Have not come across this anywhere since. Never used pulut to cook this, just ordinary rice. Perhaps I should give it a try.

  3. hmmm,I think with this portion, it would just be a "snack" for me, I'll either have two or some other stuffs to go for it if it's going to be a proper meal for me.. hehe!!

  4. I've never seen nasi pulut and rendang served nicely plated up like this, like fine dining style. Usually a bit more messy, no? :P

  6. I can see that it's a small portion. But glutinous rice is very filling, so it's best to eat less.

  7. I love these turmeric rice with curry. It is so traditional to me.
    The whole plate looked so empty and neat. Funny!

  8. This looks like something we'd get from those full moon boxes too.
