Pemetaan Budaya



The uniqueness of Nasi Kerabu lies in the bluish colour of the rice. This is the result of the petals of bunga telang, or its scientific name Clitoria Ternatea, being cooked together with the rice. Thus there are many variations of this rice according to its colour like Yellow Kerabu Rice (Nasi Kerabu Kuning), White Kerabu Rice (Nasi Kerabu Putih), Black Kerabu Rice (Nasi Kerabu Hitam), and Blue Kerabu Rice (Nasi Kerabu Biru).

This traditional food is normally served together with dried fish, fried chicken, grilled meat, salted egg, cracker, budu (fermented shrimp), as well as raw vegetables and herbs like cabbage, cucumber, long beans, kesum leaf and ginger flower.
