Nyonya Ju Hu Char

This is a beautiful dish...and it taste really good even for some kids who do not like to eat vegetables. They will simply love it. This dish is normally served during festives season in a Nyonya Baba home. My grandma has taught us the way to eat it. A small portion of ju hu char is wrap in green lettuce and complement with a small portion of sambal belacan...Wow it taste so delicious!

I have simplified the way the vegetables are cut now. My grandma and mum have very good cutting skills and they can shred the vegetables so finely with the knife. As for me, no way I can do it, I end up with a plaster on my finger. Not to worry, with the help of the shredder, things are made easy for us...hahahha.

This is how it goes........within 40 minutes you will have this delicious dish

What do you require?

1/4 cabbage

1 round turnip (bangkwang)

2 carrots

3.Add in the shredded vegetables and stir well, add a little water, salt to taste
