Cincalok Fried Rice captures the true essence of Malaysian Peranakan comfort food. Fry up a large batch for your festive open house this Eid 2019.
Cincalok or fermented salted micro shrimp, krill (or “geragao” in Bahasa Melayu) has an incredible umami, salty flavour. A small amount added to dips for raw traditional salads (ulam), rice dishes and even omelettes boosts flavour to new heights!.
Cincalok is always packed in clear, glass bottles. Choose product that has a natural, light pink colour which indicates freshness. Avoid those dim, brownish ones, because they have aged or air has entered the bottle, causing oxidation.
