Spice Quarter | Malaysian Spice Blend | Nyonya Curry



Nyonya cuisine comes from the  Peranakans, descendants of early Chinese migrants who settled in Penang, Malacca, Singapore and Indonesia. Their cuisine combined Chinese, Malay and other influences.

The Nyonya style of cooking is the result of blending Chinese ingredients with various distinct spices and cooking techniques used by the Malay and Indonesian community. The dishes from this cuisine are similarly tangy, aromatic, spicy and herbal.

We were really excited to develop and craft this Malaysian Spice Blend because we love all the food from the Asian subcontinent. With this recipe, you only need three ingredients, potatoes, chicken and coconut milk. 

It is a simple one-pot dish that is ideal for that weeknight dinner or a quick family meal


  • 5g Malaysian Spice Blend
  • 1 can coconut milk     (300 ml)
