IN SEARCH OF THE PUCUK RAWAN





I managed to find the pucuk rawan growing in a kampung in Tanjung Karang last weekend. This plant grows where there is water. It grows wild and can be found near paddy fields. One can make kerabu with it or ulam. The stem part that I am holding is supposed to be the tastiest.

Mencari pucuk rawan
Saya dapat menemui pucuk rawan di sebuah kampung di Tanjung Karang pada minggu lepas. Tanaman ini tumbuh di kawasan yang ada air. Pucuk rawan tumbuh secara liar dan boleh dijumpai di sawah padi. Boleh dijadikan kerabu atau ulam. Bahagian batang yang saya pegang adalah yang paling sedap.

That looks amazing - I visited the Perak herb garden yesterday, for the second time, and was stunned by the amount of 'weeds' with medicinal properties.

In Lenggong, they called it "keledehweh" or simply "leweh". While Javanese called it as "genjer".

we used to have these growing in the drain in front of my house,but due to some reason,it no longer exist.i used to play with its seeds.
it can be tasty if u know how to prepare it,but it will taste really bitter if prepared wrong.
