This recipe is a dedication to Hasimah’s dad who recently passed away. Dishes such as Malaysian Spicy Chicken, Fried Chilli Eggs and Spicy Malay Noodles come across the ocean from Malaysia and Singapore to Broome from Hasimah’s father. Sadly he has passed away, however his dishes will be remembered and shared with great fondness and appreciation.
