Add some salt or sugar to taste *( I omit the sugar in this dish as I found it's already sweet to my taste)

- Lastly, add in the spring onion and stir to mix.
- Dish up, sprinkle fried shallot on top and serve warm.
p/s: *Due to no stock in hand and I was lazy out to market, I cook this dish with prawns and without the dried cuttlefish. For the better flavour, use pork belly and dried shrimp, don't forget the dried cuttlefish ya!!*
Jicama/Yam Bean is a must in this dish. Other ingredients like cabbage and mushrooms are optional.
HAPPY COOKING !!
