With this upcoming app, you won’t need to think about what to cook for your meals

You won’t even need to go shop for groceries or prep the ingredients. We’re talking about SedapTV, of course.

SedapTV isn’t new. In fact, it’s been in existence since June 2019, starting out as a platform designed to give users access to classic Malaysian recipes, food and product reviews, a directory of food-related businesses while giving you the chance to create an easy-to-use grocery list.

SedapTV was created to bring delicious Malaysian recipes and Malaysian food to the world through various platforms. It is our mission to make it both a comprehensive and invigorating platform not only for food lovers, food explorers and kitchen warriors but also anyone and everyone who is involved in the food business and bringing them closer to consumers. SedapTV goes beyond just creating great content but also ultimately supporting an industry.

The meal kits

More recently, SedapTV introduced meal kits, which will benefit everyone who is either far too busy to cook their own meals or want to learn how to cook but aren’t confident in their skills. How will the SedapTV Meal Kit benefit you?

For starters, you won’t have to shop for the ingredients or prep them. Everything is inside your meal kit and properly portioned out and cleaned. For example, the Steamed Chicken with Ginger meal kit we got had the chicken cleaned, cut up, and packed neatly in a vacuum-sealed bag. All other ingredients like the minced ginger, tomato wedges, and even the oyster sauce were already portioned out. All we had to do was follow the instructions, assemble it, steam it, and it was good to go. It is idiot-proof.

With everything portioned out, you don’t run the risk of wastage. We’ve seen the situation happen all too often. Imagine this: you wanted to try out a recipe that required only a few tablespoons of a particular condiment. Since the smallest bottle is at least a few hundred millimetres, you use only a tiny portion and never use that bottle of condiment ever again. Look to the back of your fridge — it’s probably still there. With this meal kit option, you won’t have this problem.

At press time, the current SedapTV Meal Kits include dishes like Salted Egg Butter Chicken, Eggplant Sambal, Fishball Soup, Steamed Chicken with Ginger, and Pudding Batik. Each kit is priced between RM19 and RM26 with portions enough for two to three people. Do bear in mind that a meal kit offers only the dish itself — you’ll need to make your own portion of rice and accompanying dishes, if you require them. More dishes are being added to the menu monthly, so be sure to keep a lookout for them here.

The app

As for the SedapTV app, it is currently underway and will soon be launched. With the app, you’ll be able to get everything in one place: cooking shows, restaurant reviews, quick and easy recipes with video guides, chef tips and hacks, cooking classes, an easy-to-use grocery list, food supplier and local eateries listings, and also an e-commerce section for local micro-businesses. It’s your gateway for everything food-related in Malaysia.
