We feel that Peranakan food is uniquely olden day fusion cuisine due to the mixture of chinese and malay ingredients, the flavours produced are just amazing. However, the cuisine itself is dying slowly, many families choose to protect their recipes and keep it only within the family. Eventually these recipes might get lost through generations if their children or grandchildren do not learn how to cook them. We are lucky to be able to work with Chef Arlene a peranakan chef from Shin Gi Tai, to create this recipe for you guys! This dish pairs perfectly well with Roti Jala, the way the lacy rolled pancakes soaks up the curry just gives us a sense of comfort from eating it.
