Pekasam is one of the methods used by the Malays to preserve fish. After being thoroughly cleaned, the fish is salted for two weeks, washed, then allowed to ferment for a further three weeks. The ingredients deployed for the fermentation are unique to pekasam making – toasted rice, tamarind paste and brown sugar. The fermented fish is washed then packaged for sale with some toasted rice.
