When a Malaysian-born woman got eliminated by a chicken dish from MasterChef UK last week because it was just not crispy enough, Malaysians took to social media to slam the judges’ ignorance.

“I like the rendang flavour, there’s a coconut sweetness. However, the chicken skin isn’t crispy. It can’t be eaten and all the sauce is on the skin so I can’t eat it,” Mr Wallace remarked.

Prime Minister Najib Razak tweeted on Tuesday (Apr 3): “Who eats chicken rendang with ‘crispy chicken’?”

Foreign Minister Anifah Aman, meanwhile, wrote on Facebook: “It is amusing when foreigners try to teach Malaysians about their own traditional foods. I wonder if this is a form of ‘whitesplaining’ that you hear about on social media.”

In an Instagram post last week, Ms Zaleha said she was “gutted” to have been eliminated from the show, adding that she stood by her traditional way of cooking nasi lemak.

“There was a special stall outside my school that sold the best nasi lemak so I used to save up pocket money on Fridays,” she explained to the judges. “The dish is very special to me.”
