Nasi kuning reminds me when my baby having their fullmoon celebration. We give away nasi kuning/ kunyit to my friends, colleagues and relatives and the side dishes would be rendang chicken, pickled ginger, 2 red eggs and 2 red angkoos.

Retno, What a beautiful presentation. You cook all those side dishes to go with Nasi kuning? That is a lot of work for a meal. Rajin lah you. May I know if you cook the nasi kuning with normal rice or nasi pulut?
