To our dismay, the prices of food essentials are expected to rise starting 1st July, including our very own staple food, chicken. This came to everyone's attention after the Malaysian government announced their decision to remove the standard ceiling price.
To reserve the sorry state of our wallets, it might be a good idea to start considering cheaper grocery alternatives. Instead of chicken, here are other essentials you can grab from your grocery aisles that are much cheaper:
Recipe idea: Spicy braised tofu
Recipe idea: Gochujang tempeh
3. Canned Tuna
Recipe idea: Chili oil tuna melt
Recipe idea: Sardine sambal with egg
Recipe idea: Tomato egg
Recipe idea: Hot honey chickpea bowl
Recipe idea: Grilled mackerel
These cheaper protein alternatives are relatively easy to make and don't typically require tons of ingredients or complicated steps to put together.
