Create flavorful and visually stunning dishes with this easy-to-follow Malaysian cookbook.

The Food of Malaysia presents over 62 easy-to-follow recipes with detailed descriptions of Malaysian cooking methods and ingredients, enabling you to reproduce the exotic flavors of Malaysia in your own kitchen.

Malaysia's cuisine is an exciting blend of Malay, Chinese, Indian, and European cooking. Drawing on their multiethnic heritage, Malaysians have developed unique variations on Asian favorites like Malay Chicken Satay, Chinese Fried Kway Teow and Indian Chicken Curry Puffs. Added to these are exotic creations like the fiery Portuguese Baked Fish prepared by Malacca's Eurasian community, Kelantanese Nasi Ulam (rice blended with handfuls of freshly chopped herbs) and savory Butter Prawns—a dish that blends seasonings from all of Malaysia's major ethnic groups.

The Food of Malaysia provides a selection of unforgettable recipes, at the same time introducing the reader to the nation's diverse cultural and culinary traditions.

Delicious Malaysian recipes include:
  • Mango Chutney
  • Borneo Fish Ceviche
  • Zen's Crispy Brown Noodles with Gravy
  • Fiery Chicken Curry Devil
  • Southern Indian Mutton Curry
  • Black Pepper Crab
  • Pancakes with Sweet Coconut Filling
  • And many more…
