Rasaku Kerisik is a coconut paste that is traditionally used to make your dishes more tasty and aromatic. Kerisik is an essential ingredient especially in preparing local favourite dishes such as Laksa and Rendang.
Kerisik is commonly referred to as 'coconut butter'. It is made from toasting grated coconut to enhance the nutty flavour, then pounded into a paste. It is commonly used to thicken curries and is a vital ingredient in Rendang (an infamous dish in Malaysia and Indonesia), to achieve the desired presence and aroma of coconut. It is also served as a condiment in a variety of local delectable delights like Nasi Ulam (Herbal Rice), Nasi Kerabu (Herbal Rice with fish or meat) and Kerabu Salad.
