About the Book

Cookbook author, entrepreneur and media personality Rita Zahara follows up her bestselling title Malay Heritage Cooking with another exciting treasury of dishes deeply rooted in Malay culture and history.

In The Many Flavours of Malay Cooking, Rita assembles a stunning collection of authentic dishes that hail from various Malay ethnic groups. She presents the richness and diversity of Nusantara cuisine with recipes from her family and notable contributors that include highly regarded chefs, Mdm Asmah Laili and Chef Amri Azim, and established restaurants Sabar Menanti, Warong Nasi Pariaman, Hjh Maimunah Restaurant and Mamanda.

Recipes include sumptuous staples and traditional favourites such as ayam penyet (grilled chicken rice), opor daging (beef in coconut sauce) and sambal udang (spicy  prawns) as well as crowd-pleasing snacks and delicacies including kuih bingka suji (baked tapioca cake), puteri seri muka (glutinous rice with pandan jam) and pulut serunding (grilled rice cakes with grated coconut).

Written with clear and easy-to-follow instructions, the recipes in The Many Flavours of Malay Cooking have been rigorously kitchen-tested and will inspire home cooks to incorporate the winning combination of herbs and spices so closely associated with Malay cuisine into their cooking repertoire.

“Food is only food if it is prepared with love. And it is with this love
that I hope to preserve and document our cultural and
culinary heritage so that we always remember who we are.”

—Rita Zahara
