Paceri Nenas (or "Pineapple Patcheri") is a traditional dish of the Malays in Pahang and is of course made from pineapples, a tropical fruit found in the country.
The Malays take their staple rice meal with a combination of fish, chicken, beef, mutton or lamb or other protein dishes, along with vegetables, either cooked or raw (taken as "ulam").
