Nyonya Ayam Pongteh // Nyonya Chicken & Potato Stew // 娘惹豆酱鸡

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. Hope you like our rendition 🙂

  • Hi. I wanted to ask what is fermented soya bean? I tried Cold Storage and couldn’t find it. Any brand or pictures to share? Thank u!

    • Hihi sorry for our late reply. Look out for 豆腐乳。It’s in glass bottle. Usually placed with other bottled preserved food such as bottled caixin which you normally eat with porridge. Hope this helps. If you still can’t find it, please drop us an email or message us on Facebook then I can send you the photo of the bottle. Cheers.
