Dietitian´s
comments:
This popular dish is normally prepared with coconut
milk. This recipe is low in fat and saturated fat as the coconut milk
has been replaced with low fat milk which is high in calcium and
other minerals. Fresh chili is used to make the sambal instead of
dried chili and the taste and aroma of the rice can still be
maintained with the use of pandan leaves.
