Nyonya Food-Babi Pongteh

I have an obsession of watching a Singapore drama, Little Nyonya... i have watched it over and over again...

There were lists of Peranakan food had been mentioned during the drama, which attracts me to find out what are they?

One day, i was browsing on Rasa Malaysia, and discovered a Peranakan recipe which makes me so tempted to cook - Ayam Pongteh ...

Instead of using chicken, i use lean pork in this dish and it turns out allright, causing a less-meat eater like me love it so much : )


It doesn't require a complicated ingredients to cook this Babi Pongteh, i purely adapted the whole process of how Rasa Malaysia did...


However, time is required to perfect this Babi Pongteh... because of using lean pork, it takes double times to simmer the meat until tender... ( i simmered the pork for 2 hours, added water in mid-way to prevent burning, and added potatoes at the last 1 hour)...
