Local Specialty-Nasi Dagang

Terengganu’s cuisine is distinctively memorable from the generous use of spices and fresh local ingredients. One of the most popular and well known is Nasi Dagang, usually eaten with side dishes of tuna curry, pickled cucumber and carrots. Nasi Dagang is a rice specialty of Terengganu. The dish is made by steaming a mixture of regular and glutinous rice in coconut cream over low heat. Simplicity is its essence. ‘Dagang’ practically means going travelling and in those days most are of trading trips. It is practical to pack along the Nasi Dagang to be eaten along the way. Nowadays it is serves in hotels and resorts as part of a signature dish of Terengganu. It is suitable to be eaten at any time of the day during breakfast, lunch, dinner or even supper.
