Ju Hu Char – Nyonya Dish

Part of our CNY tradition is each family will buy or make their famous food back to Kluang.

  1. 2nd Auntie will make “kok cai” which is Hubby’s favourite and layer cakes that both Jared and Jaden love so much.
  2. 4th Auntie will buy Godiva and all sort of expensive chocolates
  3. 5th Auntie will make fruits cake and cook curry chicken
  4. 7th Auntie is famous for her roast pork and Ju Hu Char
  5. 8th Auntie always buy persimmon, plum, cherry, strawberries and varieties of nuts (almond, walnut, etc).

We have non-stop of good food that was so hard to resist. Nobody can ever have a successful “diet plan” during this CNY get together.

The second cooking class that we had is to cook “Ju Hu Char” by Auntie Jenny again.


  1. Boil pork belly (200g) and slice thinly
  2. Soak dried squid strips (Ju Hu See) with vinegar and water for about 10 minutes
  3. Saute garlic and onion
  4. Add squid strips and stir until fragrant
  5. Add pork and stir fry for about 5 minutes
  6. Add vegetables (carrot, turnip, cabbage, French bean, mushroom) and stir fry until cooked.
  7. Add pinch of salt and white pepper.

This dish goes very well with lettuce.
