the ingredients are,
1 -1 kg old cucumber,
300g pork ribs,
7 red dates,
1- 3 dried sotong,
6 small dried mushrooms(optional),
wash the pork rips and par-boil
soak the dried sotong, red dated and dried mushrooms for about 20 minutes. wash and set aside.
Boil 1 litre of water in a pot. Put in all the ingredients . Slow down the fire when all the ingredients in the pot is boiled. simmer for about 1 to 11/2 hour. I usually will pour into slow cooker after boiling in a soup pot and let slow cook for 4 hours. Slow cook can slowly simmer out fragrant and the flavour of all the ingredients. I normally do not add any salt into to soup, we prefer the original taste of the soup. Garnish with chopped spring onions or coriander. Serve hot.
