Recipe : Cucumber with Salted Soya Bean sauce

This home cooked cucumber with salted soya bean sauce is super easy to prepare. I usually eat raw cucumber. Yesterday, I prepared this dish for my age-old parents who no longer have strong teeth to chew the crunchy raw cucumber.
  • 1-2 cucumber (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon salted soya bean
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon black soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • Heat the oil in a wok and fry the chopped garlic till fragrant;
  • Put in the salted soya bean, fry for 30 seconds;
  • Pour in the water and cooked till the mixture is boiled;
  • Put in the cucumber, cook for 1 minute, add in the black soy sauce;
  • Cover the wok and cook for another 2 minutes till the cucumber is soften (cook for another 1 minute only if you prefer the cucumber to remain crunchy);
  • Pour in the corn starch with water mixture and cook till it boiled.
  • Dish out and serve with rice.
