Nyonya or Peranakan cuisine is a mix of influence from the Chinese and Malay cuisines. Essentially, Peranakans are descendants of early Chinese migrants who settled in parts of Malaysia, particularly Penang, Malacca and Singapore, inter-marrying with local Malays and combines Chinese, Malay and other influences. Some of them also settled in Indonesia. Ayam pongteh or Nyonya Chicken & Potato Stew is one of the more popular dishes by Peranakans. This dish uses basic ingredients and is very easy to cook.
