Cooking: Szechuan Pickled Veggie

Assalaamu'alaikum wa rahmatullah

This one perhaps is not the food eaten by the majority Malay or Muslim people in our country. Mostly people who are related to Chinese or those living among Chinese community are familiar with this. It is easy to be prepared and does not have to be cooked. One may eat this raw. It is made from preserved sliced mustard plant. We call this as Char Tsoi in Chinese. Sometimes available coated with chilli paste. This one is 0.60 cents.

How to eat this? This one could be important in noodle based cuisine for e.g while we take instant noodle because we do not have to cook this. Can also have this with rice. Non-Muslim Chinese especially Southern Chinese may mix this in their noodle cuisine with chopped pork. Muslim Chinese mix this with beef noodle. Pickled vegetables like this can be compared to German's Sauerkraut but I never try German's pickled vegetable.

Sealed with prayers for mercy, peace and love, amin!
