Homegrown Taugeh(Bean Sprout)


 Second last day of school, Cikgu asked us t bring some cotton and a plastic container to school. Said it's for a science project wor.

She gave us some green beans and added some water to the container. Told us bring home. Said it will grow into "taugeh"(Bean Sprouts) ...then can eat wor.


When Mamarazzi saw that...she said...not enough la..Just a few seeds. Won't have enough to cook leh. You know her la...everything also big scale one......She pour more green beans that Papa bought into a basket. Added some water.

Ne need cotton meh? She said no need wor. Just water will do.


 The next day her "taugeh" had sprouted. She drained away the water. and kept a dark place. Said have to "wash/rinse" the taugeh 2 or 3 times a day and the taugeh is to be kept in dark place . This will make the taugeh Pui Pui (fat) just like the taugeh that we eat in Ipoh.

These are my taugeh after 3 days. All tall and slim like me. 

 These are mamarazzi's Taugeh after 4 days(yesterday). All short short and fat.

 Mine vs Mamarazzi's . Can see the difference? Mine not kept in dark place. Mamarazzi's taugeh is just a day younger than mine

 Had "Ngah Choy Kai"(Chicken with bean sprout) last night. It's one of the famous must eat dish if you go to Ipoh.

Again, Mamarazzi used short cut when making the Chicken dish. She cooked the chicken in a pot of hot watter. Added ginger slices, spring onions and an old cucumber. Forgotten to add salt. But okay la...can add salt later on.

When the chicken was cooked, she just took out the chicken and let it cool before chopping into pieces loh.



 As for the pot of water...well....it become the soup of the day lor...Kill two birds with one stone.

My taugeh how ah? Too "old" to eat liao. Can plant it in the garden ah? Then became tall bean stalk...just like Jack and the Beanstalk. I want the goodies but I don;t want the "people" up there come chasing me wor.

  9. Small kucing learns a lot from growing taugeh - how to make it slim or short and fat. No waste, water used for boiling chicken becomes soup - good move!

  11. Luckily your mama knows the correct way to do. If I am not mistaken, the taugeh that we plant for the science project is not edible one. It absorbs dunno what thing from the cotton, poisonous.

  15. A never out of date science project. This aunty also did the same project in my school days. You can grow your bean sprouts in the garden and watch how it will grow into a mung bean plant, it will be very interesting. Enjoy your long, long holidays.
