COVID19 outbreak is getting worse and we are advised to stay at home. I'm so glad that my new kitchen helper - Ninja Foodi came just in time to help ease my 3-5 meals daily cooking and baking...
Ninja Foodi is a combination of pressure cooker and air fryer in one pot, it's super efficient and time saving. Besides pressure cook and air frying, there are other functions such as steam, slow cook, sear/ saute, bake/ roast, grill and keep warm.
I've tried out the pressure cook function to cook nasi lemak, it takes only 2 minutes to pressure cook the rice which is really amazing! I grilled some satay and otak-otak to pair with my nasi lemak using grill function, just 8 minutes and the satay is nicely cooked. Total cooking time for this simple and delicious nasi lemak meal is about 15 minutes plus the time to generate pressure for pressure cooking.
Here's a quick video to show how easy to prepare a 15 minutes meal using Ninja Foodi:
Nasi Lemak Recipe
1 + 1/2 cup Rice (washed and drain)
1 + 1/4 cup Coconut Milk
1 cup Water
1 Thumb size Ginger (pounded)
1 Lemongrass (pounded)
1 Pandan Leave
1/8 tsp Salt
Method: Add all ingredients into the inner pot, mix well. Pressure cook in Ninja Foodi for 2 minutes.
Note: If you're serving the rice right away, when the 2 minutes cooking is done, let the rice rest about 5-8 minutes before releasing pressure.
(I'm using new-crop jasmine rice, the rice turned out soft and fully cooked. If you're not using the same kind of rice, wait for 10 minutes before releasing pressure.)

Chicken Skewers/ Satay Recipe (without peanut sauce)
200g Chicken Meat (chunks)
1/2 tsp Corn Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
1 + 1/2 tsp Curry Powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tbsp Oyster Sauce
1/2 tsp Sesame Oil
3 clove Garlic, mashed
Method: Mix together all ingredients, cover with cling wrap and let marinate for 2 hours/ overnight in the fridge. Place chicken chunks on skewers (at room temperature), grill in Ninja Foodi for 8 minutes.
Note: Use skinless chicken thigh/ leg meat, trim off fat if any or else the chicken fat/ oil may drip onto the rice during the grilling process. If making bigger batch of satay (means longer grilling time), remove the rice before grilling. Prolong grilling may crisp up the rice. ;)
