My memories of Nyonya Chang (Nyonya Rice Dumpling)

My late grandmother made the best Kueh Chang (Nyonya Rice Dumpling) no doubt about that. I remember as a kid, I looked forward excitedly to that time of the year to eat her Kueh Chang. She’ll made them by the boxes and take a bus from Melaka to where we were back then, in Lumut, Perak as my father was with the Navy.  I anticipated her arrival with great delight as I know though I […]

Cooking 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 […]

Cooking 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 […]

Nyonya Taste Cuisine, Kota Laksamana Melaka

Being a Peranakan, we don’t usually dine out at Peranakan restaurants. Nyonyas usually take pride of their own cooking and prefer to invite guests to their home for a meal. Majority of them are like that except for me as I am one of those rare Nyonyas who only knows how to eat but not cook. I attribute this to my mom who spoilt us constantly with her delicious home cooked food that I never find the […]
