While the Asus phone camera allowed fast and easy capture and consequently; a simple method of uploading, I captured the dish with a “real” camera at the same time.
After slotting the SD card from the GM-1 into the PC, I can take my time to pick one I like. I chose one where the salted duck egg can be seen clearly. The gallery on the phone is too small to make creative decisions.
As far as tradition goes, Nasi Kerabu is garnished with aromatic knick knacks such as fried fish crackers and grated herbs. I picked this pic to place in the sample gallery of my Food Photography Services by TV Smith (Facebook) page.
Whether you are having steamed white rice or blue rice, Kak Teh Nasi Kukus (Facebook) in Banting serves the most fragrant spice marinated crispy fried chicken (Ayam Goreng Berempah) to go with it.
The Kelatanese blue rice is (hopefully) derived from the natural blue colouring of the butterfly pea flower (Bunga Telang) or its scientific name, Clitoria ternatea. Famously known as the “clitoris flower” as it is shaped like the woman’s delicate private part with its own clitoral hood or sheath.
