Sambal Kangkong



I cooked sambal kangkong last Thursday but didn't have time to blog about it... anyway, I think I'll cook it again this week, if I manage to get them at the market! :P Hopefully I can get better photos this time round because I only realised that all the photos were a tad blurry when I downloaded the photos to my laptop yesterday!




Kangkong is rich in iron and its high level of S-methyl methionine are used in the treatment of gastric and intestinal problems. It has also been reported to have insulin-like properties which alleviates hyperglycemia. (Source: http://203.64.245.173/iv_sea/publications/kangkong.pdf)



Ok, I'm sure frying it with sambal won't aid the person having stomach or intestinal problems :P But you do know that frying it with sambal really is the way to enjoy kangkong, don't you? *wink*
