The Food We Love On Raya

The end of Ramadhan means it's time for Muslims around the world to celebrate, and an integral part of that celebration involves food. So in Malaysia, we have the classic main dishes: Rendang, ketupat and lemang. And when it comes to desserts, treats like Almond London and semperit come to mind. So we explore the origins and significance of these food, with Nadge Ariffin. Then, we speak to Marina Mustafa about the culture of preparing Raya dishes at home.
