I made the following with ideas from THE BEST OF MALAYSIAN COOKING by "Mrs. Leong Yee Soo," which someone from Malaysia said was the most authentic of the Malaysian cookbooks I have. It requires overnight marination and a lot of ingredients that are difficult to get where I live, but it was well worth it.
Chicken in an Amazing Tamarind Sauce (Ayam Sioh) (see my recipe, to be posted in a few days)
Malaysian Eggplant (see my recipe, to be posted in a few days)
(from a previous incarnation of this site, when we lived in a forsaken place!)
