The Nyonya culture (also known as Peranakan) arose from the interracial marriage between Chinese and local South Asians in the 16th Century, while Nyonya denotes the female descendants from the intermarriages. Nyonya cuisine is a concoction of South Asian and Chinese culinary traditions that has flourished with the Nyonya ladies who embrace the essences of both cuisines to create their unique style of fusion recipes. The Nyonya recipes carry Chinese culinary legacy in its cooking techniques including stir-fry, deep-fry, pan-fry, braise and stew, while incorporating indigenous Southeast Asian ingredients, especially the spices and herbs. Nyonya cuisine tends to be richer in flavours from the abundant use of coconut milk and spices.
