Kangkung, water spinach is a vegetable that can be addicting sometimes. It might be because the structure is hard to digest so it tickles your throat when swallowing. Another thing is that the taste of the veggie after cooking is still plain and sweet which contrast with highly tasty ingredient such as tauco, fermented soy bean. This dish is a hot seller in seafood night stalls.
Making a good tasting Kangkung can be tricky. The key is to keep the moist by soaking the cut Kangkung in cold water, then transferring it to the pan when the spices are fragrant, toss and cover. After turning the Kangkung turn off the heat and cover.
