Wellington-based Rempah brings Malaysian cuisine into homes with a range of authentic Malaysian sauces.
The Rempah range includes laksa, rendang, sambal, peanut, curry, kurma and dhall curry, and the Roti Chanai flat bread.
The range, developed by Reuben and Caroline Danam, makes it easy to recreate the Malaysian classics at home
Laksa, synonymous with Malaysian cuisine, is a rich, delicious coconut-based creamy broth cooked with a myriad of aromatic herbs and spices. Add fresh rice noodles, egg noodles or mee hoon (rice vermicelli) to Rempah’s Laksa sauce for a mouth-watering Malaysian meal in minutes.
Rempah’s Sambal is a tomato-based sauce capturing the piquant flavours of tamarind and belacan (dried shrimp paste) with garlic, chillies and shallots. Add chicken (‘ayam’) or your favourite meat or vegetables and serve with rice or roti.
Rendang is another ubiquitous Malay dish that uses herbs and spices such as ginger, galangal, turmeric root, lemongrass and chillies, with roasted coconut and coconut milk, and is simmered to a dry gravy to create a tender meat dish.
As well as producing Rempah sauces, Caroline and Reuben own Rempah Malaysia Takeaways. Located in Miramar (Wellington) Rempah Malaysia offers customers a wide selection of authentic dishes including Roti Chanai and Mee Goreng.
Rempah sauces are available from selected stockists nationwide and are priced from RRP$4.95.
