Terung Dayak with mackerel

Terung Dayak with mackerel

This dish is a common staple on Diana’s family dining table, as her mom would buy terung Dayak whenever they were in season.

Banana heart kerabu

Rather than raw, this kerabu includes cooked elements that result in something like a masak lemak.

Sweet mango chutney

Unlike many other chutneys popular in the Malaysian-Indian repertoire, this one veers sweet and makes for a great snack on its own.

Thai-style bihun salad

Thai-style bihun salad

A wonderfully savoury salad for a crowd, perfect for potlucks, parties, and picnics.

Soft and tender chunks of meat without hours on the stove is not possible, but getting those spicy rendang flavours definitely is.

Shukto

Leela’s late mother was the family’s ‘culinary comforter’, and taught her how to make this vegetable dish. Complex in flavour, this recipe takes no shortcuts.

Horlicks flan

Horlicks flan

A dessert containing eggs, milk and Horlicks means it’s okay to eat for breakfast, right?

Pekasam ikan

Pekasam ikan

Many kampung folks catch freshwater fish as a cheap source of protein, and pekasam is a way of fermenting a glut of a catch.

Kangkung belacan

Kangkung belacan

This is quite possibly the best version of kangkung belacan we’ve tried—spicy, briny and still-crunchy.

Hinava tenggiri

Hinava tenggiri

Hinava is a traditional native dish of the Kadazandusun people in the state of Sabah, which is a method of cooking saltwater or freshwater fish using lime juice.

Fenugreek fish sambal
