definition of Malaysian casserole?
Hi, I love Malaysian food, have numerous cookbooks about it, and often eat it out in restaurants here in NYC.
Some of the menus have separate sections titled "casserole". What make a dish a Malaysian casserole and what distinguishes a casserole from other dishes like a curry or laksa?
Thank you for any info that will help me to understand this.
Redang Island and Nyonya both have casserole sections on their menus.
On Redang Island's menu:
Curry assam fish head is under "casserole", while assam laksa is under "noodles in soup".
An example from Nyonya's menu:
fried fish head casserole under "casserole", steamed fish in Nyonya house special sauce is under "fish"
(Sorry, I'm a bit technologically challenged and not sure how to put a link in here)
Maybe it's a nyc thing?
