4 Recommended Nasi Kandar in Penang, Full of Spicy Curry Flavour!

Nasi Kandar is the signature food of Indian Muslims in Malaysia, dishes are mostly meat-based, and its most fascinating feature is the aroma and spicy sauce of a mixture of spices,which is definitely a good combination with white rice or Nasi Briyani (turmeric rice)! The name of Nasi Kandar was made because Indian Muslims were selling it by carrying all the foods on the pole and walk along the street during early time. Now, of course, they don’t have to work so hard to carry heavy food around, for now they sell Nasi Kandar at stalls or restaurants. When you order at a stall or restaurant, you often hear customers say banjir or kuah campur, banjir means flood, but this refers to asking the staff to get a lot of sauce on the meal while kuah banjir means put all kind of source into one plate, you don’t have to worry about the strange taste of the sauce when mixed, because you’ll only taste the spices that are satisfying!
