Nyonya Chicken and Potato Stew (Ayam Pongteh)
Nyonya Chicken and Potato Stew (Ayam Pongteh) – Wonderful, homey Malacca Nyonya dish made with chicken, potato, and flavored taucheo and gula Melaka.
Many readers asked me for my Ayam Pongteh recipe, or Nyonya chicken and potato stew. Believe it or not, before this post, I have never had ayam pongteh, even though I grew up with my late grandmother, who was a true blue Penang Nyonya.
Much like the Cincaluk Omelet (telur dadar cincaluk) recipe that I shared, Ayam Pongteh is a Malacca (Melaka) Nyonya dish. Made with chicken, potato and flavored with taucheo (fermented soy bean sauce) and gula Melaka (palm sugar), ayam pongteh is a homey and wonderful dish…
I adapted this ayam pongteh recipe from my friend House of Annie, except that I reduced the amount of dark soy sauce because dark soy sauce is mostly used for coloring purposes instead of flavor. Try it out, I am sure you will love this.
