I like eating Chinese cabbage but you will seldom see me with it. Why? Because Chinese cabbage is ‘cold’ in nature. Eating lots of it will cause heavier vaginal discharge (sorry guys) and period. This vegetable however is ideal for expelling ‘heat’, promotes urination and treats malaria.
This recipe is adapted from a book called Cook Easy! Eat Healthy! I forgo the use of chicken and stock. Instead I add beancurd sheet. Hope I can share more of the recipes from this book.
After the dried shrimps has soften,
Add in 1 cup of water. Simmer for 10 minutes.
