Chai Boey/Mustard Green Soup

AIKKSSS... WHAT A NAME FOR A DISH?

And usually this Mixture-Of-Everything dish is everyone's favourite in my family and I am sure many of us love it as well!

Normally this dish is created after when the festive season is over.  Any leftover of dishes are not to be wasted, they can just go into the pot at one go, add in blanched mustard leaves, dried chillies, tamarind, tomatoes, lemon grass, ginger... 

As for me, I do not have leftover food so I made a special request to my neighbour who goes out very early each morning.  First question to him, "Do you like Chap Choy?" His reply... "Yes, I love that dish!"  Good, in that case, you have to buy some the roasted pork trotter for me!   LOL.... 

He ended up buying a pork trotter and of course, I reimbursed him, he is already so nice to go out early to catch the roasted pork man.... LOL.. Pork trotter cost around RM23 and mustard leaves around RM10.  Never mind the money, the One Dish Dinner satisfied our cravingsss!!

Everything dumped in and get them cooking.....
Boiled till everything turns soft.... 
Add to taste.... 
Very appetizing....
Spicy, sour and savoury!!

  1. This looks like what we call stew. This one would be pork stew.

  2. I love this dish. Will always buy it when I see it but some people say don't buy because it is cooked from leftovers. As long as the leftovers are not dirty and do not have salivas of other people then it is ok for me to buy from outside stalls.

  3. Never had this before. For us, when we say "chai boey", we mean what is left over from a banquet, e.g. at a wedding. Sometimes we do mix some of the dishes...other times, we keep them separate - reheat and eat and eat and eat till all is gone!

  4. This is always a popular dish in Penang. You can find them after funerals and wedding dinners. I love it too.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
