Singapore is truly blessed when it comes to dishes. In fact, there are a lot of foods in the country and this is because of the invasion of many immigrants such as Malays, British, Chinese and Indians. During their stay in the country they leave some of their recipes which are now being followed by many Singaporeans and are served in all food houses in the city.


One of the favorite foods of every Singaporean is Rendang – a dish that is closely similar to curry that is made from beef and mixed with different spices and coconut milk. The ingredients are being boiled until the meat of the beef will become tender and the sauce or its gravy is absorbed. Aside from beef meat, other meats like lamb and chicken can also be a great ingredient to the dish.


For its meat coating, spices such as galangal, ginger, lemongrass, garlic, chilies and turmeric are only few of the many spices that will be used for the spice mixture. On the other hand, coconut milk is an added flavor of Rendang but the preparation of coconut milk will take several hours. For a much tastier Rendang, you can left it overnight so that the mixture would fully suck up into the meat.

In Singapore, it is a tradition that Rendang is served as a food to respect and honor the guest. If you want one, plan ahead of time because it is very difficult to find Rendang because it is rarely found in the country.
