sai yong choy

Stir-fry Watercress Shoots

Here in Malaysia, it is made into the popular soup, 'Sai Yong Choy Thong' (in Cantonese). Slow-boiled with soup bones, usually chicken or pork, some dried oysters and a handful of dried red dates creates a wonderful aroma fit to satisfy a rumbling tummy on a cool stormy day. I look forward to this slow-boiled soup very often.
