  • You can also use chicken powder or any condiments you prefer.
  • Wash the leaves thoroughly, especially when you get them from the wet market.
  • Best serve while it’s hot with steamed rice or fried rice.
  • You can also cook and add it with some dried fish, meat like pork, shrimp paste, black beans, fried fish, or as you like.
