Thunder Tea Rice

Thunder Tea Rice, a commonly seen dish of Hakka origin is commonly found in local hawker centers and generally constitutes of a good mix of vegetables and protein served in yummilicious goodness.
For a start, to make it even healthier, we used brown rice for the additional fibre, which reduces high cholesterol levels, making a great dish for foodies with diabetes. We used a lot of green goodness for the topping, like chyesim, spinach, romaine lettuce, long beans, basil & mint leaves, tofu to mix with the tea soup paste.

A whole serving would be sufficient for a good meal, and satisfying without being too full. As our elders would enjoy it, so can you too!
