As i told earlier in my previous post, this week's theme for my long blogging marathon is Streetfoods/Condiments, yesterday was streetfood and today am posting an interesting curry powder under condiments. This nyonya curry powder is used in Malaysian cuisine for making their famous Nyonya chicken curry. When i chose condiments as today's theme, i went on searching for a spice powder and finally i found this new curry powder at Malaysian Delicacies. Immediately i went through this curry powder, seriously i was shocked to see that this curry powder goes for your usual Indian spices.
Nyonya cuisine is the result of two cuisines, the chinese immigrants and local Malays, which gives this fantastic cuisine,this cuisine use local ingredients like chillies, shrimp paste, lemongrass, galangal etc. Nyonya peoples prefer making their curry powders or pastes themselves. This curry powder is an exemple from their collection of flavourful spice powders.With this curry powder, you can make a fingerlicking,flavourful chicken curry. Yes i prepared their Nyonya chicken curry and we enjoyed it thoroughly.
