Sauropus androgynus….

Sayur manis, star gooseberry, katuk, phakwan, rau ngot, sabah veg, otherwise known locally where I came from as shu zhai choi can be said to be my ultimate veggie-love.

So imagine our surprise and delight when Muks spotted some last friday in a grocery store at chinatown and, with the help of google, managed to confirm the identity of this oh-so-elusive veg that we’ve been craving for since moving out of Sabah ahem-11-cough years ago.


Quickly nabbing a few packs of them, my first batch had to be lightly sauted with garlic and sesame oil.
