Cook with Ayden: Nyonya Sek Bak

If you noticed, Ayden usually cooks chicken dishes because that is the easiest meat I can buy. I don’t go to morning market hence I do all my grocery shopping in shopping malls. Only recently I introduced prawns to Ayden and he happily cooked Nyonya Assam Prawn with it which we all love very much. Now that Ayden is getting more and more familiar in the kitchen, I start to introduce more varieties of meat […]

Cook with Ayden: Ayam Masak O

We are going to share a Peranakan Nyonya dish today. It is a popular soup dish called Ayam Masak ‘O’.  One of the quickest and easiest soup to prepare, it is easily a favourite among children as well as adults with its soupy gravy, soft potatoes and flavorful chicken with lots of ginger. Though we use ginger to cook this, it is not gingery hot but rather just nice to complement the whole thing. Best […]

Cook with Ayden: Ayam Satay Buah Keras

A couple of weeks ago my mom and I did a live Peranakan cooking demo at The Straits Hotel and Suites, Melaka. One of the dish we cooked is Ayam Satay Buah Keras. Today, Ayden cooked the same dish at home but instead of using the wok, he used the rice cooker because he is too young to be handling a wok and a gas stove. If you wish to try cooking this dish, do […]

Authentic Cendol @ Chanap Cafe, Persatuan Peranakan Cina Malaysia

While we were in Melaka over the weekend, my parents brought us to Wisma Peranakan, Tengkera Melaka. My parents are active members there with my Dad being one of the AJK member in their Koperasi.

You may want to read the post again here -> Being Socially Active My mom wanted me to see it myself. […]

Nyonya Assam Prawn Recipe

I used to cook this dish when I was courting Darling decades ago but ever since we got married I don’t remember ever serving him this until today :) I’ve forgotten how to cook it that I had to call my mother to make sure. Unlike some other Nyonya Assam Prawn (especially the Penang version) where the prawn are fried until dry and a bit burnt, my mom’s is the wet version. I remembered as […]

Nyonya Chap Chye Recipe (Vegetarian Dish)

Unlike Loh Hon Chai (refer to my entry here)  where red bean curd is used, the Nyonya Chap Chye calls for the use of Taucu (minced bean paste) instead. This is an extremely simple dish to prepare and  the hint of sweetness goes well with kids. Ingredients: oil garlic, chopped 1 tablespoon minced taucu onion, sliced white cabbage carrot dried mushrooms, soaked and sliced dried lily buds (kin chiam), soaked; cut off the hard tips […]

Baba Nyonya Yee Sang @The Tranquerah, Red Carpet

Chinese New Year is just around the corner. I remembered vividly what Chinese New Year was back in my hometown in Malacca. CNY means staying up late on New Year eve to help Mom pack Ang Pows, filling up the cookie jar, hanging up red cloth (or Chai Kee as we call it in Peranakan language) on the main entrance of the house. All these were done with the entire house filled with the aromatic […]
