This immensely popular herbal version of Bak Kut Teh is commonly found in Klang. Just looking at the colour of the soup, you can already tell the difference between this and the clear, peppery, garlicky version we made previously.
Another classic yet homely dish. The eggplants and minced meat are braised in a combination of spicy bean paste and soy sauce. It then absorbs all the umami like a sponge.
Also, don’t underestimate the salted fish, as it adds another layer of aroma to the dish.
