Project Title The Pansuh Mix
Project Category Innovation
Abstract The increasing demand for convenience foods is irresistible, particularly in an on-the-go world. The easy-cooking food product is not only relevant to modern cuisine, yet it can also be used to improve the marketability of local and native ethnic dish like Pansuh. Realizing such potential, ready to cook Pansuh Mix is derived and developed using local and natural ingredients. This gives a unique identity to Sarawak indigenous food that poses many health benefits. The Pansuh Mix can be used to prepare the Pansuh dish in a short amount of time. The mix are created into coarse powder form, where the use of bamboo as the traditional method of cooking the dish is no longer needed, in line with the United Nation Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) No 2 i.e. to ensure sustainable food production systems by 2030. With this product, native ethnic dishes can conveniently be prepared in a heated pot, preferably a clay pot; for soup or even steamed dishes. The product necessitates the survival of the native ethnic Pansuh dish, which is normally cooked and eaten fresh. It also adds to the novelty of bringing native ethnic food to the next level; promoting Malaysia’s local food particularly the state of Sarawak through innovative food processing technology, longer shelf life, quality packaging, labelling, branding, and encouraging SMEs to participate in local food industry. This product has the potential and is ready to be commercialized at both national and international levels. The product is pending copyright approval from MyIPO.
