Rendang is a spicy meat dish. Unlike many Malaysian dishes that involve a rempah (spice paste), this one is not caramelised but is used as a marinade and then simmered until the meat is tender and gravy reduced.
Hearty, delicious and full of flavour, this dish is perfect for sharing and is eaten with steamed rice, ketupat (a compressed rice cake) or lemang (glutinous rice cooked in bamboo tubes), accompanied with vegetable side dishes.
Rendang is rich in spices and can be difficult to make, which is where this handy paste comes in. The rendang paste includes ingredients such as onion, Galangal, Lemon Grass, Chilli, Sugar, Garlic, Salt, Ginger, Tamarind, Turmeric Leaves and Kaffir Lime Leaves so all the hard work is done. Using this recipe paste, your rendang can be ready in 25 minutes and serves 6 person.
