Black peppercorns are harvested when fully matured and then dried, retaining their black color. White peppercorns are ripened fully and then soaked to remove the outer black husk, resulting in a lighter color and slightly different flavour. Green peppercorns are harvested before they fully mature, giving them a milder flavour and fresher aroma compared to black peppercorns.

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.
