Stir-fried Cekur Manis

Cekur manis is Sauropus androgynus, known as 马尼菜 in Mandarin from where I came from. It is easily propagated and cultivated, thus became an important source of leafy vegetables during my adolescence years growing up in the kampong.

It was fun to cook too…

For some reason, the leaves are hand-shred, allowing it to bleed out green chlorophyll. Maybe it’s easier to cook shredded leaves. But for us kid, the shredding is a fun way to help up in kitchen.

Ingredient :
1. generous portion of cekur manis leaves, reduce to shred
2. some shredded garlic
3. some dry anchovies
4. 2 eggs

Method :
1. sauté the garlic and anchovies
2. stirfry the cekur manis leaves till it’s cooked
3. put in the eggs and mix well
4. add salt to taste
