Fonterra Unites Malaysia-New Zealand Flavours to Celebrate 60 Years of Friendship

Merdeka! Merdeka! Happy 60th Merdeka! In conjunction with Merdeka Day, Fonterra Brands Malaysia has come up with two unique fusion dishes namely Roti Jala with New Zealand Lamb Tandoori and Kiwi Venison Rendang Meat Pie with Potatoes and Mushroom  to commemorate 60 years of Malaysia - New Zealand diplomatic ties. The recipe developed by chefs from Fonterra's foodservices division Anchor Food Professionals showcases the iconic flavours of both countries representing harmonious and long-standing friendship between Malaysia and New Zealand.

His Excellency Dr John Subritzky, New Zealand’s High Commissioner to Malaysia, highlighted the significance of this 60-year milestone and Fonterra’s role as a leading dairy nutrition provider in Malaysia.
Fonterra, the world’s largest dairy exporter and New Zealand’s largest investor in Malaysia provide the best dairy nutrition to Malaysians through leading brands such as Anlene, Fernleaf, Anmum (Materna, Essential and Lacta) and AnchorThe two dishes were made with ingredients from New Zealand and Malaysia, as well as Anchor and Anlene products.

Inspired by New Zealand’s iconic meat pies, the Kiwi Venison Rendang Meat Pie with Potatoes and Mushroom is made witha Venison Rendang filling, as well as a generous dose of dairy with Anchor Extra Yield Cream, Anchor Unsalted Butter, Anchor Colby and Cheddar cheeses and Anchor Mozzarella Shredded Cheese.

The Roti Jala with New Zealand Lamb Tandoori transformed the traditional pancake by filling and rolling it with tandoori-spiced New Zealand lamb, which had been marinated with Anlene plain yoghurt to retain its juiciness. 

We had the chance to experience hands-on making Roti Jala with New Zealand Lamb Tandoori  and totally loving it. Here's the recipe if you interested to try.
