  1. thank you for putting up all those wonderful recipes! malay cooking has not yet "arrived" in europe, and i am excited to try put those recipes, they look soo interestin. i ahave one small suggestion though: if you take the time to research the english names for ingredients westerners are unfamiliar with, it will be much easier to read the recipes. (example lengkuas=galangal)

    1. dont worry! google translate is around...
