As requested by yipguseng, the picture of "Ma Wan" have been uploaded at the end of this post
Got myself some dabai fruits to consume. It's has been quite a long time since I last tasted the dabai fruit.
Foochows call this fruit as "Ka Lang".
So, do you know what are dabai fruits? It is a common fruit that can only be found in Sarawak and Brunei (If I am not mistaken). Looks like olives but definitely NOT olives. Done some searching and found out that the scientific name for the fruit is Canarium odontophyllum.
Thank god for common names.
So, here's a picture of Dabai Fruit or locally known as Buah Dabai.
So, how to prepare the fruit? You will need to soak them in hot water until the flesh softens. After that, add some soy sauce or salt or sugar depending on individual preferences. Normally, I would eat it with soy sauce + sugar or only soy sauce.
Not only the skin and flesh is edible but the kernel (insides of the seed) is edible. You will have to chop the seed into half then use a toothpick or something to dig the white edible thingy.
That is about all on Dabai fruits. More pictures

The "Ma Wan" as requested. I did not manage to take the picture of the whole fruit but here, the slices. Should be from the mango family.
