Papa asked for what? She said the seller told her that these are edible flowers. The seller said it's called 夜来香. Wah lau eh....luckily it is not called 夜香(poo).
Mamarazzi asked her gardening "kaki(s)" and they told her it's called Bunga Tongkeng/Bunga stokin/Chinese Violet/Tonkin Jasmine/Bunga Tangkal Ledang/Fragrant Telosma and the scientific name is Telosma Cordata.
When Papa heard the word Tongkeng he laughed and asked whether she knows what it meant or not. Of course she knows and the flowers doesn't have tongkeng ayam smell leh. In fact it has a sweet scent.
Her gardening members taught her a few recipes on how to cook this. Among that :-
1) Cook soup- just some anchovies/mince meat/pork ribs, salt and egg with this.
3) Stir fry with any kind of meat/minced meat or seafood like prawns and clams.
4) eat raw as "ulam".
She asked me to
Papa told Mamarazzi not to cook all. Leave some for him to eat as Ulam.
According to her gardening members, eating this flower is good for the eye sight. Feedback from her members is that now very hard to find this flower being sold in the wet market.
Came home ...made omelette. Too stingy. Put too little flowers coz she wanted to make soup pulak today.
Now she planning to plant this at home. Then harvest the flowers for cooking. Not bad leh....it would give out lovely scent and can be eaten . Just perfect leh. Gotta go to nursery in Sg Buloh to find liao.
