Malaysian cuisine

Malaysian foods, recipes and cuisine. Find out about typical Malay dishes as well as regional specialities in Malaysia. Malay food originates from the Malaysian Peninsula and some of the islands close to Sumatra and Borneo, and is also influenced by neighbouring lands. The variety of cultural influences on Malay food has resulted in a rich and exotic cuisine. It is usual in Malay cooking to use plenty of fresh herbs and spices such as ginger, garlic, lemongrass and chillies, and less well known spices such as daun kemangi (a type of basil), laksa leaf and kunyit basah (turmeric root). In Malay cooking fresh and dried spices are often used to make a rempah, a spice paste that is used as a base for many dishes.
