MARINA Mustafa is a well-known chef who is capable of different cooking styles, both traditional and unconventional.
In her cookbook, Cooking Under Pressure, she shows the benefits of cooking with a pressure cooker which not only saves time but also brings out the flavours as well as it gives a nice texture to the dish.
For those who do not have a pressure cooker, Marina also shows the conventional method of making the dishes. Here are three comfort food from the cookbook:
1. Ubi Kayu Bersantan. Click here for recipe.
This is a great dessert to be eaten warm or straight out of the fridge.
2. Asyura Porridge. Click here for recipe.
This one-pot meal is usually served on the 10th day of Muharram, the first month in the Muslim calendar. It has rice, beans, lentils, vegetables, nuts and so on.
3. Salted Fish and Pineapple Gulai. Click here for recipe.
This is a nostalgic dish as everyone seems to remember their own mothers’ version of it.
