Nasi timbel is a hot steamed rice wrapped inside banana leaf. It is a traditional Sundanese cuisine from West Java. The heat of hot-cooked rice touches the banana leaf and produced a unique aroma. Tt then evolves into a complete dish served with various side dishes such as fried chicken, empal gepuk (fried beef), jambal roti (salted fish), tahu goreng, tempeh, salted duck egg, sayur asem, with lalab and sambal. Nasi timbel later evolved to nasi bakar.
