Nasi kandar is ours, say Penangites

Nasi kandar is ours, say Penangites:

"Many upset rice dish and pasembur not included in heritage list

GEORGE TOWN: Nasi kandar and pasembur are definitely not Singapore’s — the Penang Indian-Muslim community is laying claim to it.

However, they also expressed disappointment that these two types of food were not included in the list of 100 types of heritage food and drinks in the National Heritage website (www.warisan.gov.my).

Restoran Kapitan chairman Abdul Wahab Mohamad Hanifah said nasi kandar is “definitely a Malaysian original” and should be promoted as such because their ancestors from India first dreamed it up in Penang in the 1900s.

“They worked at the nearby port and would concoct different curries with whatever ingredients they had.

“Nowhere else can you find nasi kandar that comes close to the Penang version because the water here is special — it is sweet.

“Even when my cooks bring all the ingredients to Kuala Lumpur and prepare the food there, the taste is slightly different,” he said, adding that the dish should be promoted as a “Malaysian original”.

Pelita Nasi Kandar chain director K.K. Sihabutheen said nasi kandar should be the number one item in any “original Malaysian food list”.

“Not only was the nasi kandar created here, but Penang nasi kandar is the most popular around.”

Since the 1930s, nasi kandar has played a prominent role in the culinary history of Penang.

Its origins date back to the days of yore when Indian-Muslim immigrants roamed the port and dusty streets of colonial Penang, carrying containers laden with home-cooked dishes and rice slung on both ends of a kandar (a wooden stick).

Most people also believe that pasembur, or Indian rojak, as it is known in some states, is another Malaysian original first served by the Indian-Muslim community here.

Gani Famous Pasembur owner Jamil Kader Gani, whose family had been making this dish for three generations, “guaranteed” that pasembur was born in the state.

“Nowhere else in the world will you find such variety and the gravy is also special because most pasembur sellers make their own gravy according to their family recipes.

“Pasembur arrived here around the same time as nasi kandar and should be promoted as wholly Malaysias,” he said.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen’s recent statement that nasi lemak, laksa, bak kut teh, chilli crab and Hainanese chicken rice were Malaysian dishes has sparked off a “food fight” on the Internet, with some unhappy Singaporeans insisting that chilli crabs, Hainanese chicken rice, nasi lemak and bak kut teh were theirs.

BlogPress lite - Blogger app for iPhone










Get it from iTunes. Seems like we cant upload more than 1 photo for each post. Maybe in full version we can. This app not really impress me, but since I'm waiting for Blooger app so I give a try, I think better to use email to post to Blogger. We also can make it as draft in outbox when no internet connection.

Normally I will blog from iPhone using special email address from flickr where we can upload and directly blog that image.

Isa Samad for Bagan Pinang LOL

10 sebab mengapa Isa Samad tak sepatutnya bertanding di PRK DUN Bagan Pinang

10 sebab mengapa Isa Samad tak sepatutnya bertanding di PRK DUN Bagan Pinang


1. Beliau pernah ada kes dan telah digantung selama 3 tahun.

2. Transformasi UMNO hanya jadi mainan kata-kata bila masih menggunakan orang lama.

3. Nama beliau dicadangkan UMNO bhgn bukan atas kepentingan rakyat tetapi atas dasar menguatkan cable.

4. Beliau tidak langsung menolak walaupun pernah bersalah sblm ini menunjukkan sikap inginkan kuasa di mata rakyat.

5. Saranan Tun Dr. M supaya calon lain dikemukakan.
