Tradition at it’s peak: Part 3:
So once again this year, my mom had put me in charge of making chicken rendang while she makes beef rendang and sambal kacang.
Rendang is a traditional must-have dish during Eid Mubarak celebration especially in Malaysia and Singapore.
Rendang is a blend of fresh ingredients usually grown in the areas of Malay archipelago, namely: red onions, galangal or blue ginger, lemon grass, red chillies and ginger, harmoniously cooked in coconut milk (preferrably freshly squeeze), added with kerisik (grated, cooked or roasted coconut paste), tumeric leaves and lime leaves.
The secret key of Rendang making is: patience; as it consumes hours to reach into perfection.
Picture is taken in the middle of making beef rendang by mom. #eidMubarak #salamAidilfitri #riangRiaRaya
