354. Sup Sayur Campur

Let's go back and talk about food. Have you ever cook this 'Sayur Campur' soup? Most have I guess. I cooked it this afternoon, and after a long time not cooking it my family loves it, especially hubby.

Funny...I've always called it 'Sayur Campur' because there are only dried vegetables put into it. Most shops sell these dried vegetables all in one packet but I prefer buying them in separate packets ( I mean 1 dry bean curd sticks in 1 packet etc.). Nowadays the dried vegetables are expensive.

I also wonder if this is a Chinese dish of origin? :) or what other names is this dish called?

Sup Sayur Campur

Vegetable Ingredients would be -

10 dried Bean Curd sticks
RM1 dried Black Fungus (Black Mushrooms)
1 small packet of Tanghoon (Glass Noodles)
8 - 10 pieces of dried Prawns

1. Soak the bean curd sticks, when soft cut into 1" long, washed then leave to dry in a sieve.
2. Soak the black fungus, when soft cut into halves with a scissor.
3. Soak the glass noodles.
4. Wash the dried prawns.

A. Ground 2 small shallots, 2 garlics, 2 big red chillies.
B. Add in 1 teaspoon belacan (shrimp paste) and the washed dried prawns. Ground lightly.
C. Saute A. & B. then add in a couple 2 - 3 cups of water.
D. Bring to the boil and add in the bean curd sticks, the black fungus and the glass noodles.

E. Add 1 piece of dried tamarind flower (asam gelugor) into the soup. Bring to boil.

F. Add salt and ajinomoto to taste.

Eat the soup hot with rice, salted fish or salted duck eggs (making sure these 2 are in small rations ok?).
