  • About

This simple yet potent dish is redolent of sweet Chinese wine, sesame oil and aromatic ginger. Hakka women often eat this during the confinement period (post-natal care after childbirth) as the wine warms the body and the ginger is said to help dispel wind from the body and prevent aches and pains later in life. The quantity of wine added can be adjusted depending on your taste preference.
