Baba Nyonya Malaysian Food
Baba means gentlemen and nyonya means ladies. These are the Chinese immigrants who arrived in British Malaya in the 18th and 19th centuries. Over a period of time, their Chinese cuisine blends with the local Malay cuisine resulting in an unique cuisine known today as Peranakan cuisine or Baba Nyonya cuisine. Baba nyonya cuisines are found in Penang, Langkawi & Malacca.
An example of this inter-cultural fusion is curry laksa which has a coconut milk spicy soup eaten with noodles. Malay people did not use noodles in their cuisine until it was introduced by these Chinese immigrants to British Malaya. In traditional Chinese cuisine, coconut milk and spices with hot chillies were not used. A hot spicy soup made with coconut milk is very typical of Malay curries. When a Malay curry soup being eaten with a very Chinese staple, namely, noodles (as in mee, mee hoon or keoy teow) Laksa or curry mee is born.
