Top 10 Most Fattening Malaysian Foods

Roti Canai tops our list of the most fattening Malaysian food. Now you know!

There are so many varieties when it comes to Malaysian food that you will be spoilt for choice for sure. But before you go out and binge, you might want to be mindful of all the wonderful Malaysian foods around because the favourites are among the most fattening and have the highest calorie.

Almost every type of cuisine in Malaysia includes rice. Nasi Kandar, Nasi Beriani, Nasi Ayam and everyone’s favourite breakfast, Nasi Lemak. But it is not rice which is fattening but Malaysians tend to take too much rice. Remember, 1 bowl of white rice is equivalent to about 150 calories.

Teh Tarik
Teh Tarik is like the national drink in many ways. You get it at Mamak stalls, food courts and anywhere else. One cup of Teh Tarik has 90 calories. Again, drinking tea is fine but if you are taking 2 to 3 cups a day, you are taking about 80,000 calories per year. Think about it.

Roti Canai
Each piece of Roti Canai (not Roti Telur) has about 300 calories and we usually takes 2 pieces. It can be filling but surely not very healthy.

Carbonated Drinks
Malaysians love carbonated drinks. Cola drinks for instance contain the highest amount of sugar and is 1 can of carbonated drink is equivalent to 150 calories.

Pisang Goreng
Depending on the size of the banana, each Pisang Goreng is about 90 to 100 calories. You normally take 2 to 3 Pisang Gorengs every time.

Donuts are becoming like a lifestyle trend today. Buy 10 free 1 and other promotions will only make you eat more. Remember, they are always coated with sugar.

You will see this at almost any stall, any buffet and during any occasion. The thing is, kuih-muih is a local favourite snack and they tend to contain a lot of sugar.

Mamak Food
All types of mamak food are high on calories. Mee Goreng, Nasi Goreng and among the most popular, Maggi Goreng. Each plat contains about 500 to 600 calories.

Nasi Lemak
There are more than 5 ways to make Nasi Lemak. Its high content of Santan makes it more fattening than any other foods. Sometimes we eat it with Fried Chicken, Curry and Rendang which are all highly fattening items.

Fast food
This category is in almost every category of fattening and unhealthy food in the world. Processed foods use a lot of saturated fats, so one Value Meal gets you about 900 to 1,000 calories.
