What do you get when you use the best Chinese ingredients together with the unique, authentic cooking techniques by the Malay/Indonesian community? This match-made in heaven combination gives rise to the unique taste and flavours which we are all so familiar with, The Peranakan Food.
When you think about Peranakan food, one dish that will definitely come to mind is the Babi Assam (Tamarind Pork). As with most Peranakan dishes, there are many variations to this delicacy. This week, we present to you Nonya Babi Assam by our home cook, Sharon Tay.
Sharon's father is a Peranakan and this is one of his favorite dishes. So, like any loving wife would do, Sharon's mother took the effort to learn how to cook his favorite dish. After many trials and errors later, she finally perfected it and passed down the recipe to her daughter.
There's a saying - the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. A perfect example by Sharon and her mum!
