Nyonyalicious Class is a live online cooking demonstration where I will be showing you how to create the amazing Nyonya cuisine in as little as 30 minutes, using readymade ingredients.

For example, how to make otak-otak from Curry Kapitan paste?


I want to make Nyonya cuisine simple and do-able for the wider community, and to show you how to use ready-made ingredients to create those Nyonya cuisine you crave for.

Whether you are making curry pastes from scratch or using a readymade curry paste, it does not matter; the end results will almost be the same.
Rendang is traditionally prepared by the Malaysian and Indonesian community during festive occasions such as traditional ceremonies.
Penang Assam Laksa is a popular spicy noodle soup from the Peranakan culture, which is a merger of Chinese and Malay elements found in Indonesia, Malaysia and singapore. Penang Assam Laksa is a sour, fish-based soup.


Nyonya Cuisine is known for its complexity and labour intensive in preparations.  On top of that, it can also due to lack of time due to work, knowledge and raw ingredients when living overseas, it can be very discouraging for busy individuals to learn and/or preserve the skills.

Thus, in order to overcome these issues, the best solution is to use ready-made ingredients, ranging from pastes, tamarind pastes, pandan powder etc.

I will show you how to create different nyonya dishes from these amazing ready-made ingredients that I have been using for my own cooking for the past 20 years.

My name is Lay Ean. I grew up with this amazing Nyonya cuisine from our home kitchen in Penang, Malaysia.  Even though I have left home 30+ years, I still enjoy and cook my childhood dishes most days of the week.

My passion is to introduce Nyonya cuisine to the community, irrespective of where you live. However, I want to do it in a way that is conducive to the 21st century – the way I cook in Australia!

The moto of my cooking style is – what I cook at home, I will share with you.  It has to be simple, fast yet authentic in taste, using readymade pastes.

I will share with you how to use readymade ingredients to create different nyonya dishes and other Malaysian childhood dishes that I grew up with.

I look forward to working with you.
