‘Must have’ in the sense that they’re what I would personally get if I were limited to only 10 items – again, depending on your own (Malaysian) cultural upbringing, you might have a vastly different list to mine. Will elaborate on these another time along with suitable recipes. As mentioned in a previous post, when hunting down Malaysian ingredients, aim for Malaysian brands where possible, followed by those of its closest neighbours – Singapore/Thailand/Indonesia/Vietnam.

  1. garlic
  2. onion
  3. chicken stock granules
  4. oyster sauce
  5. coconut cream
  6. Malaysian curry powder
  7. fish sauce
  8. tapioca starch
  9. noodles (eg. rice sticks if you want sth that keeps well)
  10. jasmine rice
