Peranakan or Nonya cuisine combines Chinese, Malay and other influences into a unique blend.  Peranakans are descendants of early Chinese migrants who settled in Penang, Malacca, Indonesia and Singapore, inter-marrying with local Malays. The old Malay word nonya (also spelled nyonya), a term of respect and affection for women of prominent social standing (part “madame” and part “auntie”), has come to refer to the cuisine of the Perakanans.

Clay Pot Yong Tau Foo (Yong Tow Foo) recipe - In the United States, I always get frozen fish paste from Asian stores. You can also get freshly made fish paste in the seafood department of these Asian stores. All you have to do is get the vegetables of your choice, season the fish paste with a little sesame oil and white pepper powder, and stuff the filling inside the vegetables. #malaysian #soup
