“Rempah, a common curry blend in Brunei, will infuse your meal with the most haunting flavors of garlic, ginger, lemongrass, spicy chili powder and golden turmeric. The entire kitchen smells like paradise when you cook with Rempah. You can eat Rempah in any curry – vegetarian, chicken, fish, meat. The original recipe calls for anchovy paste, giving it that nice salty flavor. I have subbed miso paste, which also has a nice salty flavor. From Global Table Adventure.”

  2. There’ll be some small pieces but don't worry, you’ll cook everything soft when you use it to make a curry or whatever you're making. You just need a little oil and a hot pan.
  3. You can add in some coconut milk to make it richer, thin out with water if you need to. Add veggies and if you wish meat or fish and you have a flavorful dish!
