    This is the Malaysian version of Indian chicken curry, which uses coconut milk. It can be substituted with yoghurt or low-fat milk, but the taste won't be the same.

    This delicious chicken curry is Malaysian inspired. The sweetness from the mango, marries well with the spiciness from the curry. Serve with plain or coconut rice.

    This curry is relatively spicy and usually served during special occasions by some communities in Malaysia. If you're really in-tune with your oriental ingredients, substitute in galangal for the ground ginger. Since this is a robust and highly flavoured curry, serve with freshly cooked rice.

    A tweak of the traditional Malay jam, this jam is instead made of pumpkin. Healthy and smells as good as it tastes. It's well worth your time. It's best eaten fresh as a spread on bread.

    A traditional and tasty Hainanese dish, this is an immensely popular chicken dish in Singapore and Malaysia. It may seem like a daunting list of ingredients, but most are very easy to find. Pandan leaves are used in Thai and Southeast Asian cuisines; look for them online or in specialty shops.
