There's A Malaysian Lady In Brooklyn, New York, Selling Kaya & Sambal
A Malaysian lady who goes by the nickname "Sambal Lady" in Brooklyn, New York, is making local headlines for successfully picking up food awards and landing a deal with US supermarket chain Foodtown to sell her range of Malaysian products.
As recently reported by the New Straits Times, Auria Abraham recently won two sofi (specialty foods association) awards in America, winning bronze for her lime leaf sambal and silver for the pandan kaya products.
This enterprising Malaysian lady makes her sambal and kaya using 100 per cent premium natural ingredients with recipes from her own mother.
On Auria's Malaysian Kitchen's website, Abraham also shares recipes on how to cook up Malaysian foods, serving suggestions to go with her products, as well as offering catering and teaching services.
