There goes the ancient proverb “When I dip, you dip, we dip.” Can you imagine eating chicken nuggets without dipping sauce to go with it? We Malaysians love our food as aromatic as possible. So, we think that the following flavors (or rather, potential money making machines) will bring your McNuggets to the next level!
1. Satay peanut sauce
Malaysians call this as “kuah” which is a peanut based sauce that pairs perfectly with satay. Many foreigners tend to assume that satay as our national dish. There are various of versions of this dish available across Malaysia but the key that make or break the barbeque skewer definitely lies on its sauce!
2. Sambal belacan

Malaysian generally likes spicy food. No matter what we eat, we all love to pair it with something spicy for that extra kick. One of the most common condiments is non other than sambal belacan. Though it might sound weird, with the right formula, we think that sambal belacan diping sauce might be the next best thing to go with our favourite chicken nuggets!
3. Butter milk sauce
Buttermilk sauce is a hit with crab and western dishes, so McNuggets should not be an exception! Best consumed when its warm!
4. Salted egg sauce
We already know salted egg goes along well with anything! So why not add them onto the menu already? P/S: we don’t mind paying a few extra bucks to get our hands on this!
5. Rojak sauce
Rojak means a mixture of everything. A good rojak paste consist of fermented prawn paste, chili paste, sugar and lime- the perfect combo to trigger one’s appetite. Adding this onto their menu will open up a whole new market that they’ve yet to penetrate, no?
