Azalina's recipes

The complex flavors of Malaysian food can keep home cooks from trying to replicate it for themselves and their families, but Azalina’s handcrafted line of sauces, marinades, jams and teas makes traditional, delicious Malaysian dishes simple to recreate. Here are some of Azalina’s favorite recipes from her childhood in Penang.

Fresh Malaysian Salad

Chilies and roasted peanuts are a pantry staple in Malaysia. Variations on this salad are served all over the country. You can make this salad with just about any vegetable and meat or seafood. 

Spicy noodle soup ("Laksa")

The complex medley of herbs and spices used to make this rich soup is characteristic of Malaysian cuisine, and will surely warm you up on a cold day.

Spicy mint chicken curry

Fresh coconut and turmeric root are joined by mint and cardamom, along with a bounty of other fresh herbs, to create one of our favorite chicken dishes.

Crepes with warm coconut jam

This crepe batter can be used to make sweet or savory crepes. For a savory version, cut jicama, carrots and lettuce into thin strips with Azalina's Peanut Sauce, and roll them up for a healthy and speedy snack.

Fried banana fritters ("Pisang goreng")

This crunchy and sweet Malaysian street food favorite makes for a simple, sinful snack or decadent dessert, and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
