Nasi Ulam refers to a rice salad which uses local herbs and vegetables as the main ingredients. While there is a variety of nasi ulam across Indonesia, Malaysia and Southern Thailand, Nasi Ulam Nyonya offers the typical peranakan flavours as its name suggests.recipesnasi-ulam-nyonyaThe term nasi ulam literally translates to rice and salad. Having a variety of local vegetables and herbs as its main ingredients and tossed with rice, nasi ulam is exactly what its name suggests. However, unlike western salads, ulam is sometimes cooked using the grilling, boiling or steaming method and is often served with sambal belacanrecipessambal-belacan to enhance its taste. Turmeric, basil leaves and winged beans are some of the vegetables which are categorized as ulam.There are many different types of nasi ulam in Indonesia, Malaysia and even southern Thailand with each showcasing its specialty.

The preparation can be quite tedious as each detail needs to be looked into to make it balanced and flavourful.Basmati rice vs Jasmine riceThe best type of rice to use when preparing Nasi Ulam Nyonya is the long grain rice.
