This dish was one of my sister's favourite dish when we were growing up in Malaysia. There was one restaurant near PJ Hilton, called "Nam Fong" where we go for dinner and this was always something we ordered. Sadly, I don't think the restaurant exists anymore. When I saw this recipe in a "Hawkers' Fare Simplified" recipe book at the Popular bookstore when I was in Malaysia, I had to buy it.
The recipe is a little fiddly because of the deep-frying, but it's tasty. I'm going to cook this for my sister when she visits during Christmas/New Year.
Along with this dish, I also tried a new dish "Steamed Silky Egg". Apologies for the photo - I forgot to take a photo before serving.
Since it's spring/summer time, we can buy 'kangkung' (Water Spinach or Water Convolvulus). So I stir-fried kangkung and leftover shimeji mushrooms with some sambal, not too spicy for hubby.
