Pulut Kuning and Turkey Rendang

For the potluck lunch we had yesterday, I made these dishes...

Turkey Rendang

2 kg boneless turkey leg, remove skin
400ml thick coconut cream
1 cup water

12 shallots
5 garlic cloves
2 tbsp dried chillie paste
5 thai green chillies
1 small knob ginger
1 small knob galangal

3 stalks lemongrass, bruised
3 kaffir lime leaves
2 fresh turmeric leaves, finely sliced
1 tbsp kerisik

sugar and salt, to taste

Put the shallots, garlic, chillies, ginger and galangal in a food processor. Add a splash of water and blend until smooth.

In a large heavy casserole pan, add all the ingredients except kerisik and the seasonings and simmer over low heat for about 2 hours or until the meat is tender and most of the liquid has evaporated.
Add in kerisek and adjust the seasonings.

Pulut Kuning or Yellow Glutinous Rice is often served during Eid and during most Malay social gatherings and feasts, such as weddings, the birth of a baby, and other malay custom related activities.

For the recipe, I'm using MamaFaMi's Pulut Kuning and it was fabulous.
Many thanks Ma for sharing!


  1. Salam Muna,
    Sorry for the late reply. Yup, it's really a small world. Who knows maybe kita sendiri pernah berjumpa masa muda2 dulu. I memang dulu selalu ikut arwah my adopted mum (I was brought up by her mcm anak sendiri) pergi bertandang kerumah TAR and mum was closed to Tun Sharifah jugak. I dulu selalu bermain ngan Faridah n Noor and my adopted sister was one of those Penari Diraja with Mariam. Infact kalau pergi ke Penang kadang2 mesti tidur di rumah TAR.

    Just one question, dulu2 masa you muda2, ada ke you pergi ke Kenny Hills or ikut diaorang pergi holiday ke Genting Highland. Pergi ke Genting not to gamble lah, but I used to follow them every school holiday tengok show. :)


    1. Salam Nora,
      Kami jarang berkunjung ke rumah Tunku, as my father's job always took us to many places. I guess the nomadic lifestyle is deeply ingrained in me that I'm still living the life :)

  3. Using 'my' recipe meaning kena hantar satu periuk besar ke sini! Hihihi... macamlah MY resepi sangat pun... kita pun cilok gak la Muna.. manalah reti nak reka reka resepi ni...

    1. Salam Ma,
      If not for Ma or Kak Hanieliza dan blogger-bloger lain yang sangat baik hati untuk berkongsi recipe on the net, susah-la orang-orang macam Muna yang kurang pandai dalam masakan traditional ni.
      I'm totally grateful!!
