Indonesian Coconut Rice, Crispy Chilli Tofu and Peanut Sambal
This rice dish, known as nasi uduk in Indonesia, is rich with coconut, cloves, lemongrass and cassia. It’s traditionalled served with fried shallots and a peanut sambal. Here, the shallots crisp up in the tray alongside. This is one of my favourite weeknight dishes.
