This is a favourite in our household and is often cooked on repeat several times a month. The reason? It’s a simple dish but oh so good. Also the easiest way to add some veges to our menu.

Pair it with rice, fried chicken or fish and some sambal for a meal. Give it a try and let me know what you think of this.
