Originated from Portugal, a rissole is a croquette wrapped in pastry and coated with breadcrumbs. It is stuffed with either sweet or savoury fillings, such as minced meat or fish. Often baked or fried, it is usually served as an appetizer or a side dish.
Prawns big or small are a favorite among many of us. Of course, for some, the bigger, the better! We can either have it fried, steamed, or skewed over a barbeque. There are also many ways to cook up a dish of prawns to satisfy our hunger pangs and cravings.
Asam Pedas' or literally means 'sour spicy' is one of the most favourite and popular fish stew dish in the Malay tradition. In fact, it is also a well-liked dish by other ethnic groups as well.
For many of us in Asia, one of our favorite snacks to munch at any family or friends gatherings, picnics, and while watching TV are crackers or ‘krupuk’. Whether it is prawn, fish, or tapioca crackers (also called emping), it is also one of the garnishes used in several local dishes such as Gado Gado.
