The Spice People FAQs

While Whole Dill Seeds have a unique flavour, they can be substituted with Dill Leaf Tips or fresh dill in some recipes. However, keep in mind that the flavour intensity and texture may vary, so adjustments may be needed based on personal preference.

Whole Dill Seeds should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place away from moisture, heat, and sunlight. Proper storage will help maintain their flavour and aroma for an extended period.

The amount of Whole Dill Seeds used in a recipe will vary depending on personal taste preferences and the specific dish being prepared. As a general guideline, start with a small amount and adjust to taste. Keep in mind that dill seeds have a strong flavour, so a little can go a long way, especially in pickling recipes.

    The Spice People FAQs

    Simple or smoke paprika along with cayenne pepper is the best alternative. Paprika tastes similar to Kashmiri Chilli, while cayenne paper adds to its spice.

    Dried Kashmiri chilli is more flavorful than hot, ranging from 1,000-2,000 Scoville Heat Units. It’s mildly hot but not too spicy.

    These spices are different. Paprika is the sweet cousin of Kashmiri chilli specific to western cuisine. Kashmiri chilli popular in Indian cuisine and is hotter than paprika.

    Place the Kashmiri chilli under the sun for two days. When the chillies turn crispy, grind them in a food mill. Cool down the powder and store it in an airtight jar.

    History & influences

    Arab traders brought spices from the Middle East, European and British travellers introduced produce like peanuts, pineapple, avocado, tomato, squash and pumpkin. During their time on the Malay Peninsula, the Chinese developed a distinctive cuisine known as ‘Nonya’, resulting from blending Chinese recipes and wok cooking techniques with spices and ingredients used by the local Malay community. The dishes are tangy, aromatic, spicy and herbaceous, and the signature dish is none other than Malaysia’s famous spiced noodle soup – Laksa.

    What is Malaysian cuisine

    As important as the rendang recipe itself is to Malaysian cuisine, what to serve with beef rendang is arguably just as imperative. Whether making the traditional beef version or a slightly lighter chicken, vegetable or fish, the rich flavour and intense texture of a rendang requires a perfect balance of freshness and tang when it comes to entrees and sides. Salads like Fresh Cucumber & Peanut and Sweet and Sour Cucumber & Pineapple Achar provide the perfect disruption to the bold, rich spices of the rendang and soothe and cool the palette alongside fluffy steamed rice and flaky golden roti bread. Entrees served at meal times in Malaysia often feature Nasi Lemak – their national dish, or Malaysian Chicken Satay to whet the appetite ready for the main event. Traditionally, the best Malaysian food is finished with an after-meal drink of Kopi Tarek ‘sweet coffee’ or The Tarik ‘sweet tea’. These are combined with condensed milk and water, and the coffee or tea drinks are ‘pulled’ by pouring vigorously between jugs to create a frothy consistency.

    Malaysia is also known for its growing and production of spices, namely cinnamon, cardamom, star anise and cloves. These spices are known as ‘rempah empat beradik’, meaning the four siblings as they are found throughout most Malay dishes. These are sold separately or as a handy blend often under names like ‘seafood curry spices’ or ‘meat curry spices’. Paired with other aromatics like kaffir lime, galangal and lemongrass (locally grown and imported) these four spices produce the complex and fragrant base flavour and aroma famous for Malaysian cooking.  As diverse as the people themselves, every aspect of Malaysian cuisine is a combination of sweet, sour, rich and spicy, combined in a way, unlike any other country’s cuisine.
