Nyonya cuisine comes from the combination of Chinese cooking and spices and the techniques of Malaysia and Indonesia cooking. It is a unique taste, spicy, herbal and a tangy aromatic food. The predominant ingredients are Galangal (not unlike Ginger), Laksa Leaf, Tamarind Essence, Lemongrass, fragrant Kaffir Lime leaves, Candlenuts (as a thickener), Chillies, Pandon leaves, and perhaps Cincaluk a strong shrimp based ingredient. These are mainly used to create dishes eaten with Egg Noodles or Rice. Ingredients are crushed together with a Pestle and Mortar which is called Rempah or spices. Recipes are complicated and intricate and many have been handed down by generation to generation thus preserving the traditional Peranakan cuisine. Those with a sweet tooth will love the Nyonya desserts mainly consisting of colourful cakes, called kuih, and sticky, sugary dishes.
