Recipe's preparation

    Dry Spices
  1. Place all Dry Spices ingredients into mixing bowl and dry roast 3 min/ 120°C/ Speed 1 until aromatic. Allow to cool slightly.
  2. With MC in place, grind spices for 15 sec/ Speed 9.
  3. Scrape ground spices into small bowl with spatula and set aside.
  4. Fresh Spice Paste

Tip

The Beef Rendang recipe in The Basic Cookbook has a very nice selection of spice too, but it is a much “wetter” recipe, more like the Malaysian style of rendang.
Serve the rendang with:
white boiled rice;
steamed green vegetables (see Steamed Chinese Greens on Cookidoo);
a salad of chopped cucumbers, red onions and tomatoes seasoned with white vinegar, salt and sugar;
sliced bananas sprinkled with fresh lemon juice and then tossed in desiccated coconut.
Selamat makan! (Enjoy!)
