A Taste of Local 'Adat'

If you like your food hot and spicy, you'll love Negeri Sembilan dishes! You should experience the unique Minangkabau style of cooking, which sees generous portions of 'chilli padi' - small and extremely hot chillies.

The recent Negeri Sembilan Persukuan Adat Perpatih Festival and Traditional Food held recently at the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi is truly an eye-opener, literally, with its searingly spicy and delicious rendang. During the Festival, stall owners representing every district in Negeri Sembilan displayed their culinary skills at cooking local specialties.

The 'Masak Lemak Chilli Padi' comprises fish, 'daging salai' - dried meat, vegetables cooked in coconut milk blended with turmeric and ground chilli padi is definitely a crowd puller during the day.

Apart from the wonderful dishes and endless food tasting, there are also demonstrations of local folk games. Favourites like 'gasing' (top-spinning) and 'galah panjang' (long bamboo) are a hit among visitors on that day.

The festival was launched by the Yang Dipertuan Besar of Negeri Sembilan Tuanku Ja'afar Ibni Tuanku Abdul Rahman. During the Yang Dipertuan Besar's speech he called for efforts for younger generation to adopt the 'Adat Perpatih', a unique custom still practised by locals in Negeri Sembilan.

Adat Perpatih is actually an evolving custom and has the flexibility to suit the current environment. There has been a lot of misunderstanding about the custom and it is timely such festival is held to create better understanding among the public. He also praised the setting up of Perpatih clubs in 50 schools in the state as well as the development of a portal on the custom, an initiative by the university.
