Rujak Kangkung

One of my mom's fave dish and happened to be mine too :)
It's basically just blanched kangkung eaten with rujak sauce. Weird come to think of it, but it's yummy :P

Recipe is from HERE with my own adjustment

2 bundles kangkung, discard the roots and roughly chopped into 3parts
3 shallots, peeled and halved
7 large red chilis, cut
3 chili padi, cut
50g gula melaka, shaved
a thumb size belachan, grill over fire for awhile and chop finely
enough salt
1tbsp tamarind paste mix with 50ml water, leave it for 5mins approximately and strain
1 lime, washed and halved

  1. Boil a pot of water. Blanch kangkung about 1min. Drain and rinse. Set aside
  2. In another small pot, bring water to boil and add in shallots and chilis, boil until softened
  3. In a chopper, blend boiled shallots, all chilis until smooth. Add in gula melaka, belachan, salt and tamarind water
