Nasi Uduk is an Indonesian style steamed rice dish originally from Jakarta, Indonesia's capital. We can find Nasi Uduk sold in roadside stalls in Jakarta which open exclusively in the morning, noon, or night, depending on the demographic of the surrounding areas. My version of nasi Uduk is very easy to prepare and I post it here for Jackicam who loves rice dishes.


  • 400 gram uncooked rice, washed and strained

  • 375 ml water

  • 250 ml thick coconut milk

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 Salam leaf (Indian Bay Leaves) or 2 pandan leaves knotted together

  • 3 eggs for omelette


  • 1.

    Wash and drain the rice in a sieve or colander.

  • 2.

    Put rice and all other ingredients (water, coconut milk, Salaam or pandan leaves and salt) in a rice cooker.

  • 3.

    Cover and let it cooked. Stir a bit while cooking, then cover and continue cooking.

  • 4.

    Usually after 20 minutes, the rice is ready.

  • 5.

    Remove the leaves before serving.

  • 6.

    To prepare the Omelette: Whisk the eggs

  • 7.

    Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt

  • 8.

    Heat some oil on a frying pan & fry the eggs until cooked

  • 9.

    Finely slice the omelette

  • 10.

    Put the omellette on top of the Nasi Uduk

  • 11.

    Serve Nasi Uduk with Bumbu Rujak chicken barbeque (see the ealier recipe I have posted).

  • 12.

    Garnish with raw cucumber and fried shallots if liked.

You can also cook the rice in a saucepan but using rice cooker is much more convenience.
