Rendang is one of the popular dishes in Malaysia, served not only during Hari Raya Aidilfitri but also many other special occasions. Rendang also comes in different varieties, with different ingredients. A rendang dish made in one home may taste very different from another. Some follow their family’s traditional recipe through the generations, while others make their rendang unique with ingredients that no one else can follow.
