This particular dish is usually served during 'confinement' period for mothers who went through the pains of childbirth. During this period, it is crucial to care for mothers in regaining their strength and recuperation of their being.
This dish is sour with a little tinge of sweetness and yet a little hot from loads of ginger being used in preparing it and it tastes even better overnight.
My family and I love this dish. I made a big pot of it last week. Great with a bowl of steaming white rice!
