Home Cooked Roasted Pig's Trotter With Salted Vegetable Soup

I have decided to cook on this particular day. I had to use up the okra or ladies fingers that were harvested from my garden and were sitting in the refrigerator. Hubby conveniently suggested that I cook soup. This is one of our family's favourite soups - the salted vegetable (hum choy or kiam chye) with roasted pig's trotter.

After our morning walk and breakfast, hubby stopped at the wet market for me to buy the roasted pig's trotter, salted vegetable, carrots and tomatoes.
This is my own version of the roasted pig's trotter with salted vegetable soup. The ingredients I used for the soup were roasted pig's trotter, salted vegetables (soaked to remove the saltiness), carrot, big onions, tomatoes, dried chilies, peppercorns and preserved sour plum. It is an appetizing soup.
And this was how I cooked my okra or ladies fingers. I steamed and then sprinkled some garlic oil.
Next, I dolloped some oyster sauce onto the ladies finger before serving. We each had a bowl of soup and the ladies fingers for dinner without eating any rice.

I took snapshots of these water feature after we finished our dinner at the Classic Dining Restaurant one evening.
 This water feature is placed right in front of the restaurant.

 You can see the antique wooden door with the brass door knockers behind the water feature.

I forgot to count the number of teapots used for this water feature.
Took some snapshots of this Tamil Methodist Church.
This church building was built in 1896.


And now you have become living building-stones

for God's use in building his house.

What's more, you are his holy priests; so come to him -

you who are acceptable to him because of Jesus Christ -

and offer to God those things that please him.

(1 Peter 2:5, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. Nancy, I really like your way of preparing the okra. It's one of our family's top favorite veggie food, but we can only have it in summer when it is in season. The antique wooden door is so beautiful:)

  3. I usually use pork belly to cook with salted veggie.

    That is a creative water feature using teapots.

  17. La disposición de las fuentes, resulta muy artística.

    Me gustan los vegetales, pero las manitas de cerdo nl las suelo comer. Del cerdo, solo me gusta el solomillo, el lomo y el magro de jamón.
