I am no authority on curries, Malay or otherwise. That's what it said on the packaging, Gulai Melayu Tradisional. So I took it as good and for the first time, tried a recipe printed on a spice packaging.
My mum bought me these. Rempah Masak and Rempah Gulai from our homegrown Terengganu brand - Cap Bunga Rose. This is their new packaging that looks all spiffy and modern.
Then I spotted the recipe provided behind the packaging.
Ah! How could I not try it? It looked easy enough. Not many ingredients are used and you don't even need the usual dry spices such as cinnamon, star anise or cloves as all these are already ground into this curry powder.
The result? Delicious! I am usually not a fan of gravy, preferring to keep my rice white and dry. But when I ate this gulai, I scooped every drop to flood my rice because it was so darn good.
I am uncertain of this curry powder is available outside Terengganu. If not, the manufacturer should consider distributing it so that folks from other states can enjoy this curry too.
