Sop's cousin. There's something very comforting about this dish—I
always have it at Warung Seniman when I'm feeling a bit under the
weather. It doesn't look like anything special when you read the list
of ingredients, but somehow it is.
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
1½ cups bean sprouts
3 stalks celery
cabbage, roughly chopped into
2 carrots, sliced
1 tomato, chopped
2½ cups water
2 tsp sugar (or to taste)
1½ tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
American note: Chinese celery and
savoy cabbage give the best flavor.
- Stir-fry garlic in a little oil.
- Add vegetables and stir for a few minutes
- Add water and sugar, salt, and pepper
- Simmer about 10 minutes
- To eat, scoop out the vegetables onto a bed of rice. Serve with a
lot of sambal tomat, peté, and tahu-tempe goreng or goreng telur.
