Over the years people have turned to Google to look up recipes for “buka puasa” meals, buffets dishes and Hari Raya feasts. Here’s a look at some of Malaysia’s favourite Ramadan dishes, desserts, and Raya cookies during the coming season based on searches on Google Malaysia in the last few years.

Main dish

The main dish is the centrepiece of any given meal, and Malaysians love a hearty, meaty dish. The usual Raya classics like beef rendang remain a staple of local households during this season, but alternatives like spicy tomato chicken (ayam masak merah) and spicy black beef (daging masak hitam) are also recurring favourites.
