Description[edit]

It is called 'festive yellow rice' because it is traditionally served during a festival. Keeping with tradition, the Chinese would serve nasi kunyit to mark the birth of their newborn, or as an offering to the Gods. To the Muslims, it has ritual significance and they would serve it during weddings or other grand festive celebrations. This rice is delicious when eaten with Rendang or Chicken curry.
