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.

Fried bread

Fried bread

Stale pieces of Gardenia to use up? Whip up this quick, customisable snack and enjoy with a cup of tea.

Sweet mango chutney

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.

Pumpkin masala

Pumpkin masala

A subtly spiced and hearty side dish, unfussy enough for a weeknight. 

Fried crackers for one

Fried crackers for one

When fried like this, the cream crackers maintain their crunch while also absorbing the oil from the spice mix. Necessity really is the (grand)mother of invention.

One-pot chicken rice

One-pot chicken rice

Sayaka’s grandmother made this dish often for the family, serving it straight from the pot to save time on washing up.

Umbut sawit in belacan

Umbut sawit in belacan

Umbut sawit is the young shoot or heart of the oil palm tree. Plentiful in Borneo from the plantations, resourceful locals have found that it makes for a terrific ingredient.

Ayam asam rong

Ayam asam rong

This is a traditional recipe originating from Jerantut, Pahang, and has since spread to neighbouring areas in the state.

Granny’s ayam pongteh

Granny’s ayam pongteh

The slow braise of ingredients in this pong teh coax out every bit of flavour, which means that it’s worth splurging on some good chicken and soy sauces for this dish.

Shallot prawns

Shallot prawns

Between the char of the crispy shallots, the umami of the soy sauce, and the sweetness of the prawns, one really doesn’t need anything else.

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.

Chicken lihing soup

Chicken lihing soup

Natasha learned how to make this dish from her mother (who she assumes learned it from her mother), and craves it on gloomy rainy days.
