Let's walk down memory lane with the Little Nyonya now "real live event"
Peranakan Cuisine had a beautiful blend of Food, Culture and heritage since the 15th century
Many have been enjoying the beautiful flavours, colours and benefits of My Blue Tea's Butterfly Pea , Pandan superfoods. and now Dragonfruit + Roselle. Some may not realise that these two (Butterfly Pea & Pandanus) humble plants have actually been used for centuries in Malacca (Penang, Singapore, Kelantan and Indonesia) by the Peranakans.
We’ve been invited to participate in the above event with the organiser, Tina Chua. And of course, using their Thermomix. The theme “Taste of Nyonya” is appropriate as it is where the birth of Bunga Telang (Butterfly Pea) is used in Nyonya Cooking. We have shared 2 versions of Pandan Serimuka recipe recently and let's revisit Pulut Tai Tai using Butterfly Pea powder.
A modern take on Pulut Tai Tai with Butterfly Pea blue tinge and Kueh Pandan Serimuka ie Pretty Face. Our take on Kueh Dadar ie Pandan Crepe with Sambal Tumis.
The Little Nyonya
Let’s revisit the Little Nyonya and watch this video where our heritage cake or kueh ie Pulut Tai Tai, Kueh Serimuka and Pandan Kueh Dadar are all made using natural colours and flavours of Butterfly Pea and Pandanus, our ancestors knows best. However, with our modern freeze-dried technology, you no longer need to blend or pound the Pandan leaves or steep the colour out from the Blue flowers. One pack of 50 grams Pandan Powder contains 166 fresh Pandan leaves.
These are our favourite shots from the Little Nyonya series. Video is courtesy of CCTV´s The Little Nyonya showing a typical Peranakan home kitchen and the making of Nyonya kueh - shown in the video are (1) Kueh Serimuka Pandan and Butterfly Pea and (2) Kueh Dadar or Kueh Ketayap. You may watch the full episode and series on CCTV.
