I still have few packets of Brahim's spices paste that I brought back from my Malaysia trip..One of the paste is rendang spices(dry curry)..Beside Brahim's spices paste ,I also brought back some tumeric leaves (daun kunyit) ,kaffir lime leaves(daun limau purut) and curry leaves(daun kari).It's a must to use kaffir lime and roasted fresh coconut flakes to cook this type of dry curry(rendang)!! I love the special fragrant of tumeric leaves and kaffir lime leaves added to enhanced the flavor of dry curry chicken..
