Malay Cooking Lesson - Rendang/Otak Otak/Sayur Lodeh

We will learn to cook some of the most classic Malaysian dishes. You will learn about the key ingredients in Malay cooking, the herbs and spices, and what to do with them. Malay cooking is surprisingly easy - it's the exotic ingredients (especially the coconut milk and galangal), that make it so special.

We will learn:

Beef Rendang - this spicy beef dish is actually one of the easiest dishes we cook, once you know how! (can be made with chicken if preferred)

Sayur Lodeh - this is a Malay vegetable curry, made with coconut milk and peanuts. It's very tasty and a common everyday dish in Malay households

Otak Otak - is a sort of spicy fish/egg mousse. We will bake this in the oven, which is fine, but it's traditionally wrapped in banana leaves and barbequed, and will make a fantastic, impressive dish to your barbeque repertoire in the summer!

Gula Malacca - this sago dish with palm sugar and coconut milk is my father's favourite after 40 years of living in Asia. He still loves English puds too though!

This is Ayam Percik served with traditional accompaniments in Kelantan, Malaysia
