“Wherever you are in the world, as a Malaysian, there is one dish that we will always crave – Nasi Lemak. Nasi Lemak, it’s the taste of home to many of us. I have taken Malaysian’s favourite dish to be incorporated into the burnt cheesecake as a challenge. Sweet, salty and a little bit spicy – perfect balance. Don’t shy away from this recipe before you try it. You might be surprise how well the taste of sambal with cheese matches.” – Ai Di Chai
