Every time I eat this dish it will reminds me of my grandma. Somehow I have associate this dish to my grandma. She is a hakka and this is one of the signature traditional hakka cuisine. It can be pair with rice, porridge and steam bun. It’s best eaten a day after you cook it. It will be so much more tastier and so full of flavour. This recipe is just how my grandma cooked it. It is a comforting food for me as it brings back my childhood memories and that’s truly precious. Enjoy…

500gm of sweet preserved mustard
500gm of salted preserved mustard
