5 DISHES YOU MUST TRY THIS HARI RAYA

 To celebrate the wonderful Hari Raya festivities after a month of fasting during Ramadan, we recommend serving these five delicious dishes that will help you impress even the most discerning palates. Make use of  Thermos® Shuttle Chef® thermal cooking to help you slow-cook your food while you busy yourself with other chores – it saves time, money, and energy!

1. Beef Rendang

What is Hari Raya without Beef Rendang? The tenderness of the meat coupled with thick and flavourful gravy is what all of us need during this festive celebration. Learn how to choose the best part of the meat, and practise to perfect this dish for your family with the help of this recipe.

Tip: Instead of cooking over low heat for 4 hours, save energy and time by slow-cooking the beef rendang in a Thermos® Shuttle Chef® RPE-3000. Simply transfer the inner pot with the boiling mixture to the outer pot for 4 hours of heat insulation cooking.

2. Nasi Kerabu

This Malay dish is unique thanks to its blue-coloured rice, which is often eaten with spicy chicken, crackers and vegetables. Instead of artificial colouring, use butterfly pea flowers to give the rice its distinctive colour. Pair it with kembung fish and sambal to complete the dish.

Tip: Instead of a rice cooker, replace it with a 4.5L thermal cooker that will save you some energy and money. Boil the rice mixture over the lowest heat with the inner pot for 10 minutes, transfer it into the outer pot and set it aside for 90 minutes.

3. Lamb & Lentil Curry

Love curry? Then this is one scrumptious dish not to be missed. Lentils, a major ingredient, are low in calories and high in nutrients – a perfect complement to a curry dish. Nutty and earthy in flavour, we recommend slow-cooking this dish to bring out its full flavour and aroma.

Check out the full recipe here.

Tip: Instead of simmering the mixture over a stove, slow-cook the dish at least 1 hour with a Thermos® Shuttle Chef® TCRA-3000 by transferring the boiled mixture from the inner pot to outer pot.

4. Devil’s Curry

For anybody who loves spicy food, this is the dish to try. Devil’s Curry is a classic Malaysian dish made from a spice paste that combines red chillies, shallots, lemongrass and other spices. It may be lethal to those who are sensitive to spicy food, so take it at your own risk!

Tip: Simmer the stew with a thermal cooker by boiling it over lowest heat for 10 minutes and allow 20-30 minutes heat insulation to continue cooking.

5. Seri Muka

This amazingly delicious two-layered dessert is made of glutinous rice, coconut milk, sugar and pandan leaves. It is a perfect dessert to pair with tea or coffee after a meal thanks to its creamy taste and irresistible sweetness.

Tip: The Thermos® Shuttle Chef® can be used for steaming too. Place a steaming rack into the inner pot to hold the plate of rice mixture, fill it with water up to the height of the steaming rack, bring it to a boil and transfer to the outer pot.
