Everything Nasi Lemak


Puan Sri Betty Saw, a well-known celebrity chef and food consultant, has authored more than 20 recipe books on various Malaysian culinary delights. She has appeared on various television cooking channels and her newspaper column From Betty Saw’s Kitchen inspired many to open cafes and restaurants using recipes from her books.

Many of her books are bestsellers in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Brunei. Puan Sri Betty Saw continues with her endeavour to create new recipes for her strong following.

A philanthropist as well as volunteer and supporter of the Malaysian AIDS Foundation, Puan Sri Betty Saw has worked tirelessly to help underprivileged children and those living with HIV.

She is also very passionate about helping women living with HIV, especially single mothers who are widowed and have to bear the family burden. These women face a lot of challenges as they lack skills and working experience. In addition, they also face strong stigma and discrimination due to their HIV status, especially in the rural areas.

Puan Sri Betty Saw is committed in her quest to assist these women by raising funds to empower them in spiritual motivation, religious guidance, vocational skills, business assistance, medical treatment, children’s education and many more.

As such, she would like to dedicate her Everything Nasi Lemak Cookbook to the Malaysian AIDS Foundation to raise funds to support this initiative.



Everything About Nasi Lemak is a delicious kitchen-tested recipe book with more than 74 tempting recipes, including various meat, vegetable and seafood dishes, to go along with its star attraction, nasi lemak.

Readers can try their hand at making Pandan Nasi Lemak, Sambal Cencalok Ikan Bilis, Potted Fish Otak-otak, Nyonya Beef Rendang, Belacan Chicken Wings, Mushroom Egg Roll, Grilled Chicken Wings, Ayam Pandan, Rendang Ayam Cili Padi, Nyonya Acar, Udang Masak Serai, Botok Udang Ayam and many other delectable dishes.

The first edition of the celebrated cook book has sold more than 60,000 copies in the local and international market since its publication in 2013.

A gift from the heart

This 2nd edition of Everything Nasi Lemak is Puan Sri Betty Saw’s gift from the heart. It symbolises her empathy and heartfelt dedication towards the plight of women and children living with HIV.

The Malaysian AIDS Foundation has obtained the rights to republish the second edition of the cookbook where all proceeds will be dedicated to women living with HIV aimed at empowering them to move forward in life with greater self-confidence and positive attitude.



The Malaysian AIDS Foundation (MAF) was formed in 1993 to raise and administer funds to support the activities and programmes of the Malaysian AIDS Council (MAC) and its Partner Organisations. It was formally incorporated under the Trustees (Incorporation) Act 1952 on May 13, 2003, under the esteemed patronage of YABhg Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor. These programmes include financial assistance schemes for children and adolescents infected and/or affected by HIV and the medicine assistance scheme to support Malaysians living with HIV in accessing life-saving treatment; as well as community-based HIV & AIDS education, prevention, treatment, care and support programmes nationwide.

Through its activities and programmes, MAF was able to reach out to as many people living with HIV as possible with health services, care and compassion, to improve their quality of life and enable them to contribute positively back to society. MAF also distributes corporate donors’ funds to support projects that have been unable to secure government funding or projects located in parts of the country where resources are scarce.
