Ambra Juice – Famous Malaysian Cuisine

Part of the joy of visiting a tropical country is exploring exotic fruits you’ve never encountered. In Malaysia, ambarella should be high on your must-try list.

It’s known as buah kedondong in Malay and shortened to “ambra” in Penang. Some refer to it as the golden apple (its colour when ripe), June plum or Indian gooseberry, and variants grow throughout Southeast Asia. The fruit has a tart taste like unripe apple and is one of the richest known sources of vitamin C, with 30 times the level found in oranges

This tropical fruit isn’t often found in supermarkets as it has a short shelf life after picking. Happily, its juice is everywhere: local street food stalls, markets, and roadside hawker centres. Ambarella juice is a sweet and sour beverage made by blending ambarella pulp with water and sugar. The result is a refreshingly tangy drink that can be enjoyed hot or cold.

Malaysians sing the praises of ambra juice as a health drink. Its high levels of Vitamin C and antioxidants are said to boost immunity and protect against free radicals that cause cellular damage. Its fans believe it may help reduce inflammation in the body and even improve skin health. While sugar is added to make it more palatable, it is certainly more beneficial than fizzy sodas!

Visitors are beginning to discover ambra juice and seek it out wherever locals drink it. It’s certainly a taste of Malaysia!
