Middle- Eastern cuisine: Sous chef Ikram Zulbahrin slicing the stuffed whole lamb for diners
Malay Chef Abbas Ali, who cooks the stuffed whole lamb dish, said it was prepared Middle-Eastern style and stuffed with basmati rice.

“We also roast it with a lot of spices like star anise, cardamom, raisins, cinnamon sticks, coriander powder, cloves, cashew nuts and curry leaves, and pour some kuzi sauce, to make the lamb more fragrant,” he said.
