Understanding the Malaysian cuisine is not easy; mixture and diversity concepts better define it. Malaysia smells of curry, a coconut rice pudding is invaded by all kinds noodles and vibrates with heat furnaces of the tandoor. Like a big pot is involved, where each culture is adding its ingredients, this country is a range of flavors. Here, who do not find something that suits your palate, you will not find anywhere.
Malays themselves have their own dishes. There are others like Peranakan or Baba Nyonya. They are descendants of the early Chinese who arrived in the country from which was born a whole rich culture that is entrenched today. Then there are the Indians, who not only imported their customs both from North and South India but merged with the Malaysian customs and thus emerged Mamak restaurants, which refers to Indian Muslim ones.
This mixture then allows us to enjoy many dishes and seasonings. Very spicy curries with thick sauces and tender meats. Chinese noodles made the traditional way swimming in soy fish sauce and ginger. Flatbreads brought the diversity of Indian culture, such as naan, the chapati (very flat bread made with whole wheat flour) and adored by all, the roti canai.
Malaysian food uses quite curry because of the influence of Indian cuisine. Also, lots of noodles act as a base through their Chinese ancestors. Indian food gives a warm feeling in the mouth and fragrant spices. Frankly, I love a good curry, especially when it has been inspired by the cuisine of southern India.
Prawn Malai Curry is exactly that. It is a delicious dish mainly composed of a cashew nut sauce and coconut milk, richly spiced with shrimp. It seems to combine the crispy seafood giving a kind of creamy curry food feeling. Curiously, this dish is common in most of the equatorial belt.
