Stir-fried kangkung with budu

A spicy and savoury vegetable side for the dinner table, with budu as the star.

Char swee (Stir-fried cucumber in vinegar)

Char swee (Stir-fried cucumber in vinegar)

Cooking cucumbers isn’t a novel method. This excellent Nyonya recipe shows us a tangy application for weeknight meals.

Winged bean kerabu

Winged bean kerabu

Make this simple vegetable side dish without even turning on the stove.

Stir-fried cabbage with almond flakes

Stir-fried cabbage with almond flakes

Swap out the usual stir-fry aromatics for fragrant and crunchy almond flakes instead.

Mom’s year-round yee sang

Mom’s year-round yee sang

When joy is scarce, we find every reason to celebrate. Make this yee sang any time of the year.

Pumpkin masala

Pumpkin masala

A subtly spiced and hearty side dish, unfussy enough for a weeknight. 

Umbut sawit in belacan

Umbut sawit in belacan

Umbut sawit is the young shoot or heart of the oil palm tree. Plentiful in Borneo from the plantations, resourceful locals have found that it makes for a terrific ingredient.

Shukto

Shukto

Leela’s late mother was the family’s ‘culinary comforter’, and taught her how to make this vegetable dish. Complex in flavour, this recipe takes no shortcuts.

Kangkung belacan

Kangkung belacan

This is quite possibly the best version of kangkung belacan we’ve tried—spicy, briny and still-crunchy.
