This post would be the continuation of Favourite Malaysia food. This round I would like to introduce Malaysia local famous delicious Dessert or Snacks. If you visit Malaysia, there would be a lot of local Desserts or Snacks which I hope you can explore. Below were some of them.
1.Ice Kacang or ABC
Ice Kacang is one of the famous local dessert which locally known as Air Batu Campur (ABC). Air Batu mean Ice and Campur mean Mix. Kacang mean Beans.The whole would be Ice mixed with beans. It made of finely shaved ice, on top of it with mixture of red beans (normally kidney beans), jelly, attap chee,creamy sweet corn, glass jelly and grilled peanuts. Then poured on top with syrup, evaporated milk, coconut milk and gula melaka (Plam sugar). The local invented it where you also could add on additional topping like Ice-cream, durian, fruits, raisin etc. But the taste still similar as the original ice Kacang.
It tasted good especially when it is a hot summer day and thirsty. Ais Kacang would be your best choice, it not only delicious, the icy cold that soothes your throat and cools down the body. It also there to satisfy your sweet tooth.
2.Cendol (Pandan Worms)
Another dessert which made your mouth watery would be Cendol. It also called Pandan worms because it made from pandan and the shape similar to worms. It similar to Ice Kacang above, the difference only the ingredient. As the name called Cendol, the main ingredient would be Cendol (green color from the picture).I have tasted Cendol which they have add on bit of Kidney beans and jack fruits, it really delicious and worth a try.
The thick creamy coconut milk and palm sugar, it adds on the aroma of the Cendol. This is a must try in Malaysia.
In Malaysia, we have 2 types of Rojak ie Fruit and Mamak rojak. Rojak mean mix. Mixtures of Fruits or mixtures of other ingredients. The important ingredient for rojak is the sauce. The sauce made the whole dishes tasty.
- Fruit Rojak (Mixtures of fruits).
Fruit Rojak normally consists of crunchy cucumber, pineapple, guava, green mango, crispy tofu, water spinach and crackers. Then they mix it together with the sweet and spicy sauce. The fruit rojak sauce is a combination of sweet tamarind, salty prawn sauce and spicy chillies (or we call it shrimp paste). On top of the fruit rojak, it normally sprinkles with peanuts bits. You can choose either spicy or non-spicy sauce. The great taste of a fruit rojak always depend with the sauce. If you able to make a tasty sauce, then you had it.
- Mamak Rojak
Mamak rojak started by Malaysia Tamil Muslim (Mamak) where they sold the rojak with motorcycle or small truck. Mamak Rojak contains fried dough fritters, bean curds, boiled potatoes, prawn freitters, hard boil eggs, bean sprouts, and cucumber mixed with a sweet thick spicy peanut sauce. You need to ask the local where can get a best Mamak rojak because not all Mamak rojak tasty. It depends with each stall owner how they make the peanut sauce.
4.Pisang goreng cheese (Fried banana with chesse)
Fried bananas are a popular dessert and snack Food in Malaysia. It is crunchy and delicious. The flour was the important ingredient in Fried banana. The crunchiness was from the mixtures of flour. But the best would be with cheese on top of it. I have tasted the best Pisang Goreng Cheese would be from my hometown Tawau.
The below was the photo I took when I back to hometown last year.
If you are a dessert person, you won’t regret if you tasted all the above desserts. There were many local delicious desserts in Malaysia beside the above. When visit Malaysia, please do tasted all of it. You won’t regret at all.
