I’ve been to quite a number of indigenous villages around Malaysia, so I am no stranger to their traditional cuisine.
As a delegate of the Eat.Travel.Write Selangor International Culinary Adventure 3.0 delegation, I had the opportunity to not only visit Kampung Orang Asli Serigala (Wolf Village) in Sg. Selisek, Kuala Kubu Bharu, Selangor, but also learn how their dishes are prepared.
If you know of the traditional ayam pansuh dish, then these are not much different.
They are also prepared using bamboo shoots over a slow fire. The dissimilarity is with the contents placed into the shoot.
Here are rice and two species of fish. Since no seasoning was used, these dishes tasted original.
After savouring these, a lot of ideas came to my mind on how to enhance their tastes with seasoning, adopting the same style of cooking.
Cooking in a bamboo is very convenient for those who camp out in the jungle. The bamboo, after splitting into half, can also function as a plate.
If one day you swing by this way, do drop by Kampung Orang Asli Serigala to enjoy the traditional way of life of these indigenous people.
