Vegetables are always being left aside by people when preparing a meal or even when thinking of what they going to cook tonight. So, to balance here is my Kangkong Goreng Belacan (Stir Fry Kangkong with shrimp paste) for you to try. If not sure, Kangkong is known as Water Spinach or Water Morning Glory in English. If, I not mistaken, in China, Kangkong is known as ‘Tung Choy’.
