I love greens and I know for sure I don't have the name of this veggie...I gave it a name though..curly lettuce :) but I know for sure that I heart this curly lettuce especially just lightly stir fry it. It is sweet and has a crunch. But for today, I stir fry these curly lettuce with chillies, garlic and fermented beancurd. This is the family favourite dish. The aroma of the fermented beancurd being saute was enough to set my stomach drumming away. The garlic and chillies added flavor to the lettuce and combined together it was really a wonderful dish. This dish is best served hot with a plate of hot brown rice. :)) a very appetizing greens dish.
