Traditional dishes dying out

KUALA LUMPUR: Ikan masak tanah liat (clay-baked fish), opok-opok (glutinous rice crackers), pulut kukus dalam periuk kera (pitcher plant glutinuous rice), kebebe (mashed fruits in bamboo). Sounds foreign?

These are actually traditional food unique to Malaysians in Peninsular Malaysia but they are dying out due to difficulty in obtaining raw ingredients such as buah rong and ikan loma, which is close to extinction.

That led to the National Heritage Department organising the “101 Close to Extinction Food Assem­blage” at the old National Palace here on Saturday.The Star Online Highlights
