Each and every one of us has our own unique way of enjoying food; but one very common (and Malaysian) thing many of us love to do is to ‘banjir‘ anything and everything we eat. In fact, we can drench our food in almost anything! From curry, soup, sauce, even gravy!
Well, if you relate to this on a spiritual level, odds are you face a ton of struggles, too! Here are some you’re probably familiar with:
1. When you love the ‘banjir‘ life but your food gets mushy and soggy if you leave it soaking too long
You have to admit, the texture of your food does get soft and mushy after awhile, but at least this trains us to eat faster!
2. Thanks to your love for all things ‘banjir‘-ed, you’ve given up wearing white/light coloured clothes completely
Too. Many. Stains.
Eating drenched or soupy food often means risking getting splattered by all the curry and gravy no matter how careful you try to be. You’ve probably resorted to using a makeshift bib every once in awhile too.
3. When you’re at a Chinese shop and you constantly have to ask the waiter if they have any ‘sap‘ (wet) dishes
The thing about eating in Chinese restaurants is the struggle of needing to decide on a few different dishes to order. For you, it’s even worse because you can’t just order the usual Marmite Chicken or ‘kangkung belacan’. No. You need a dish that comes with lots and lots of gravy.
4. When the only burger you enjoy is Ramly burger because of all its saucy goodness
This is one burger you have to eat either by the road side or use a plate because all that saucy goodness will come oozing out in all directions…but that’s what makes it so good!
5. Things always get messy because of all that extra sauce or gravy in your food
Banjir‘-ing anything usually means things are about to get quite messy and you always end up getting sauce on everything nearby; the table, the chair, your face, maybe even on your friend sitting next to you. Totally worth it though.
6. That judgmental look you get from your friends when you drench your food
Yes, it can look quite unappetizing at times but it tastes so much better than it looks! Your friends just never seem to understand. Nobody understands!
7. The struggle that comes with finding good food with delicious ‘kuah‘ is too real
When you’re the kind of person who enjoys the ‘banjir‘ life, how your ‘kuah‘ tastes is of utmost importance. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to come across places that serve delicious food and ‘kuah‘.
8. It’s humanly impossible for you to start eating before the anneh brings you your ‘kari‘
Whether it’s banana leaf rice or a simple ‘roti canai‘, you need your ‘kuah‘ because there’s just no way you’re going to start eating until you have a sufficient amount doused all over your food. How to eat if everything’s so dry?!
Speaking of ‘kuah‘, if this is something you strongly relate to with all your heart, soul and mind, we have the perfect suggestion for you that might just satisfy all your ‘banjir‘ cravings! It’s only available in Malaysia, some more!
Nando’s just released a brand new Coco-Cataplana and… wait for it… It promises an explosion of flavours plus, a generous amount of deliciously unique Coconut and PERi-PERi sauce!
That’s right! Malaysians’ favourite flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken makers just upped their game and came up with the brand new Coco-Cataplana dish!
This tempting dish comes with a quarter flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken with your flavour of choice be it Lemon & Herb, Mango & Lime, Mild, Hot, or Extra Hot, slathered in the most amazing Coconut + PERi-PERi mix, on a bed of Mediterranean rice with special Cataplana sauce, grilled vege, and lime and coriander garnish.
It’s got everything, from protein and carbs to awesome ‘kuah‘, plus, the portion’s big enough for two people! Sounds like the perfect Malaysian meal if you ask me!
