The irresistible Ayam Masak Merah, the flavourful Sambal Goreng, and the rich and savoury Beef Rendang… This coming Raya Haji, impress your family and friends with these three Raya recipes that you can easily prepare at home.
1. Ayam Masak Merah
Also known as Spicy Tomato Chicken, this piquant dish is a combination of spice and sweetness, and can be paired with white or tomato rice. You’ll need an oven to bake the chicken, and a pot to simmer the dish after. We recommend using the Thermos® Shuttle Chef®, as its inner pot can be used to cook over stove fire, and later simmered using the thermal cooker.
2. Sambal Goreng
We love this dish especially because of the tempeh (fermented soya bean cake), which gives Sambal Goreng its distinctive taste and texture. The dish is wonderfully flavourful thanks to its spices and coconut based gravy. For those who love their food extra spicy, you can even increase the amount of dried chilli for a spicier sensation.
3. Sayur Lodeh With Lontong
Opt for this simple and comforting dish if you want something soupy, tasty and filling. The beancurd and tempeh are fried to golden perfection, while the gravy is simmered to a rich and savoury taste. It takes a little extra effort if you intend to make the rice cakes from scratch. Otherwise, opt for those ready-made ones that are available in supermarkets or your neighbourhood wet market.
4. Beef Rendang
Irresistible aroma, piping hot and tender meat, and that rich, savoury gravy… This is what you will get out of this iconic Asian dish. Within its extensive list of ingredients, time is the most important component to create the perfect Beef Rendang. It takes about two hours to simmer the meat until tender, which means you will need a pot with a base that prevents your food from over-burning even with long hours of cooking – a thing that Thermos® Shuttle Chef® is designed to do.
