Assam Vegetables

Vegetables in hot spicy sour soup! In the past, people were thrifty, they would have kept all the leftovers after a big feast and whip up this dish the next day using assam slices, mustard green and chilli. It is real tasty with the combination of different flavours from various dishes. In here, we are not using any leftover which might not be healthy and therefore making it from fresh and simple ingredients which might not taste as robust as in the past. However, if you like simple dish which is sour and a bit “hot”, this can be appetizing.

Preparation: 5 mins, Cooking time: 15 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 250g mustard green
° 3-4 fresh red chilli or 6-8 dried chilli
° 5 assam slices/assam gelucor/ assam keping
° 1 slice ginger
° 250ml water
° ½ teaspoon sesame oil
° ¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste
° 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
° ½ vegetarian oyster sauce or ¼ teaspoon marmite
° 2 teaspoons sugar, or to taste
° 1 teaspoon corn flour, mixed with 1 tablespoon water

1. Combine the chilli, mustard green, assam slices, ginger and water in a pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
2. Season to taste with salt, sesame oil, light soy sauce, vegetarian oyster sauce or marmite and sugar. Stir in the corn flour solution and bring to a boil.
3. Serve immediately.
