Rendang Ayam/Chicken Rendang


The passion for food has made Malaysia one of the best destination for a culinary adventure.Today Im going to share one of the characteristic foods of Malaysia.Rendang is a luxuriously spiced dry curry mostly made of beef or chicken.Like most Malay food,the spicier it is,the better.Therefore it's a traditional favorite during occasions and celebrations amongst Malay community. 

I had cooked it so many times since then and I'm very happy within it.Thus,it was extremely enthusiastic yet filled with in-numerous flavor.Traditionally this scrumptious rendang eaten with lemang which is made of glutinous rice and coconut milk,cooked in hollowed bamboo trunks,and barbecued over open fire.These immensely aromatic rendang  also goes well with  rice and nasi kunyit(turmeric glutinous rice) .
