Meals often look something like this. Many times, everything is cooked in the morning to be eaten throughout the day. All meals involve rice and then usually have some sort of sauce, protien, and vegetable mixed on top. Pictured here is rice, eggplant that has been cooked in coconut milk & spices, and cucumber which has been cooked and tossed with vinegar. Most dishes are made from a rich spice paste (often consisting of chile peppers, shallots, garlic, salt, etc, and a variety of other spices depending on the dish).
