About Cinta Dapur

They say the further away you are from home, the more you loose your roots and attachment with people back home. Cinta Dapur is a gastronomic memoir of a Malaysian living abroad. With only memories to serve as guide. Through the collection of recipes here at Cinta Dapur, it is hoped that it will relive and excite Malaysians along with everyone else on the simple privilege of being a Malaysian. What is it you may ask; Well it is the privilege of taste nurtured through the test of time. Be it the “murukku” made by the Indian lady that lives next door, “Nasi Lemak” from the Malay lady you just have to frequent every Saturday morning or the “Char Kuey Teow” from the snobbish hawker whom you would happily stand in line for 30 … Read entire article »

Pulut Panggang – Grilled Rice

Pulut Panggang – Grilled Rice

Following from my last post on Pulut Inti, I still have some left over ingredients. So why put to waste? Hence here is another classic Malaysian kuih. Pulut Panggang is another common food you will find in bazaars during the Ramadan period. You will also find them at Malaysian coffee shops during tea time. They really go down well with a nice cup of coffee or teh tarik. I for one would never give this a … Read entire article »

Assam Laksa – Fish Broth Noodle Soup

Last week, I sent out a request on cintadapur fanpage asking for suggestion on what to add to cintadapur.com blog.

Not being able to resist having some myself, I embarked on making this classic Malaysian dish. Assam Laksa (also known as Penang Laksa) is bascially fish broth in noodle soup.

Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak

The infamous Nasi Lemak. Some would claim it to be the national dish of Malaysia. I would have Nasi Lemak almost every week. Commonly found on road sides (in my opinion these are the best) they are also sold in Mamak stalls throughout Malaysia. These days, it’s pretty hard to find them served in banana leaves. With banana leaves, the rice just taste and smell better as the smell from the banana leave infuses into the … Read entire article »

Sambal udang and Roti jala

Sambal udang and Roti jala

Sambal udang (prawn with chilli paste) and Roti jala (net bread/ lace crepes) is one of the best combinations when it comes to Malaysian hawker cuisine. These lightly spiced crepes compliment the robust chilli paste and is perfect for snacking on as well as served as a main course; mostly eaten at buffets as you can cook them in bulk and feed the masses. There are many ways of making sambal but in this instance, I’ve used … Read entire article »

So, getting out of my comfort zone of usual Malaysian recipes, I decided to make a 2 part post. Part 1 – how to make hummus and Part … Read entire article »

Pandan Peanut Scones

Pandan Peanut Scones

So to highlight the use of Mr Pandan leaf in a fusion dish, I have used one of my most favourite recipes, the humble scone and added pandan extract and crushed peanuts. This lovely rendition of scones using lemonade (in Malaysia you can use Sprite/ 7up, Australians tend to call it Lemonade) to aerate has an outcome of very light and fluffy scones. It only has three main ingredients which can definitely be found anywhere. In … Read entire article »
