Good Day Peeps !!! While cooking this rice my Alya asked me this question why only 3 colours why we can't put more colours like rainbow? I answered her...."because these are the colours that peope usually use and furthermore I have only these 3 colours"...well frankly speaking I didn't know how to answer her actually but why not maybe next time I'll put more colours then it can be Rainbow Rice instead of Nasi Hujan Panas...phewwwww luckily she did not ask me why named it "Nasi Hujan Panas" kekekekee.... then I should start googling for the answer ......as for now do enjoy the "Nasi Hujan Panas" :)
I served the rice with Ayam Masak merah, Mix Vegt & Papadom...
