1. Nasi Goreng Kampung
This Nasi Goreng Kampung dish takes less than 10 ingredients and only 20 minutes to make! You can even make it with leftover rice from previous meals. Easy peasy, no fuss meal to keep you energised throughout the day.
2. Sup Ekor (Oxtail Soup)
Our all time favourite comfort food to eat during a cold, rainy day. Clean, hearty and spicy. The trick is to cook it the night before and heat it up just in time for Sahur! It’s even easier if you cook it using a rice cooker. Make sure the ingredients are chopped in large chunks before you cook it so that it will keep its shape and size after cooking it for 2 hours. Yummy!
3. Nasi Tomato
A familiar and comforting hot bowl of Tomato Rice is THE perfect meal to start your day. Using just 30 minutes, this flavourful dish (with a hint of sourness and spiciness) is ready to be served. The tip is to use sufficient garlic, onion and ginger to bring out its fragrance, mhmm…

5. Soba Noodles with Greens
Our favourite go-to meal before a busy weekday would be this simple Soba Noodles with Greens! Only 3 simple steps to get it prepped, and the crucial trick lies in the dressing sauce of vinegar, liquid amino and maple syrup. Slurrrrp, MUST TRY.
