Nasi Tumpang

Nasi tumpang is a Kelantanese breakfast staple similar to nasi lemak but the rice with viand inside the banana leaf packaging is more compact in conical form. Its packaging makes it a portable meal (just like the banana leaf wrapped nasi lemak). The texture of the rice inside is like the ketupat – so dense. I suppose nasi tumpang is always eaten cold like the onigiri in Japan but I find its curry-sambal flavor layering quite appealing.
