During the cooking session, the entrepreneurs, who served as the cooking instructors, revealed the secrets behind two traditional delicacies – the nona manis and ketupat palas. The forgotten nona manis, a bite-sized steamed pandan-flavoured kuih with a creamy coconut centre, was featured to revive its popularity, while the Ketupat Palas, distinct from the standard ketupat, was taught to encourage the public to take a hands-on approach to weave the glutinous diamond-shaped delicacy.
Hosted by Adibah Noor, the cooking class aimed to revive the spirit of preparing home-made traditional Malay delicacies during the festive season. As a renowned household name with a passion for food, Adibah also shared a few special cooking tips and lent encouraging words during the cooking process.
Gaurav Bhasin, CEO, Mudah.my, commented: “Today, our Masak-Masak Mudah event is not only a Raya celebration. It’s an occasion to showcase our support for local sellers and to encourage the spirit of entrepreneurship. We’re particularly proud of vendors on our site, and through events like this, we hope to further encourage local sellers to capitalise on our platform to expand their customer base.”
As part of Mudah.my’s Raya campaign during the festive season, the platform had also conducted a pantun contest called #PantunRayaMudah recently. The contest was held in collaboration with students from University Technology MARA (UiTM) and was part of Mudah.my’s efforts to actively engage the youth through various on-going campaigns. The winners were announced during the first week of Raya.
The #MasakMasakMudah event ended with a scrumptious buffet spread at Bijan Bar & Restaurant where guests get to enjoy a variety of Raya's special dishes.
