Buak Keluak may be troublesome to work with – it requires an overnight soak to remove all the toxins, but the effort will pay off when you marry all these ingredients correctly.

Drizzle some aromatic truffle oil over the rice and it’s ready to serve!

This comforting Fujian and Nyonya classic is usually made before Chinese New Year, but it makes for a tasty and colorful family sharing vegetable dish. Fried beancurd skin adds a nice bite, while two kinds of fermented bean paste (“Tau Loo” and “Tau Cheo”) brings all the ingredients together in a lovely savory sauce, from crunchy black fungus to chewy glass noodles. As Sherson Lian puts it, there’s nothing like the taste of Chap Chye to remind you of traditional Perenakan home cooking!
