Good morning peeps! It is food culture day! hooray! I’m excited to introduce you Malaysian traditional food.
I had the opportunity to attend my brother school event as they were celebrating cultural day.
How should i describe it? Its a thin noodle that could be added with chicken or fish or prawn or all of them. Fried it together and put on top with an omelette egg. Obviously the egg cook separately and just slice it thinly so it can be put on top of the mee hoon.
Want to try to cook it?
This is the Malay traditional food which is call ‘ketupat and rendang’. Hari Raya is a festive season for all the Malays in Malaysia. It is celebrated after the fasting month. Hari Raya can be also known as ‘Eid Mubarak”.
What is ketupat?
It looks like a dumpling but it is made of rice which is packed inside of a palm leaf. The only way to do this is solely by hand or should i call it handmade? One person can produce this ketupat in hundreds. There is two types of rendang which is chicken rendang or beef rendang. Its really yummy.
