Cheng Can Cook: Malabar Spinach ★★★

Malabar Spinach (潺菜) is SLIMY, my favorite veggie. My first time to stir-fry veggie. It is mucilaginous, so if you like the sliminess of yamaimo, tororo, or okra, you will like this veggie. Malabr Spinach can be bought at few Chinese Supermarkets like Cali Food Market in Alhambra. Self-invented recipe below.

Malabar Spinach (Mồng Tơi), Rinsed
Garlic, Chopped or Sliced
Chili Oil

1. Heat up a tablespoon of oil in large frying pan. Add garlic and cook for a while.
2. Add in Malabar Spinach, cook till soft. Add salt and chili oil to taste while cooking.
