I remember when on our last family trip to Kapit few years ago, my parents-in-law took us to a coffee shop for dinner.
We ordered few dishes that evening and one of them was this stir fried water spinach with pig's blood cubes.
For me, it was an unusual dish as I never thought of combining kangkong and pig's blood in a dish. Seldom people in Kuching serve such too.
Anyway, it was last Sunday. Together with my man and mil, we went to Desa Wira shop to get our pork supply and some vegetables. Saw a pack of pig's blood cubes sold at RM2 (6 big cubes), so we bought a pack.
My mil assisted and taught me on how to handle the pig's blood. Just blanched with warm water for a while and then toss the water away before cut the cubes into desired size.
The rest was my turn. Ingredients beside the water spinach were chopped garlic, sliced shallots and ginger.
Heat up some oil in the wok. Then toss in the garlic, shallots and ginger and saute till fragrant. Add in the water spinach and pig's blood. Cook till the vegetable has soften. Add in some oyster sauce, and pinch of salt. Mix well and dish out. Serve warm.
Pig's blood was more than the vegetable although we only use 3 cubes. More like pig's blood stir fried with kangkong!
I don't mind pig's blood as it was rather tasteless. Stir fried with enough heat, then it would be firmer and nice to eat.
