How it’s cooked: A lot of anchovies are used in boiling the stock, which makes the soup very flavourful and sweet. The main ingredients for the dish are deep-fried anchovies, black fungus, minced meat, Chinese mushroom and the leafy, aromatic kowkay or sayur manis.
The dry version comes with a small serving of soup and spicy chilli sambal while the soup version comes with cut chillies and soy sauce. This dish is a healthy choice as it is prepared without preservatives or artificial flavouring.
