Pennywort (Gotu-Kola) Salad

Serves 4.

 

Shredding these small leaves is much easier if the entire amount is rolled tightly within a larger leaf such as lettuce. Then it is a simple matter of slicing thinly through the bundle. This is how Asian cooks do it, without the aid of food processors.

 

2 bunches gotu-kola or
   about 250 g/8 oz/ 2 cups leaves without stems
3 shallots or
   1 small onion, finely chopped
Good squeeze lime or
   lemon juice
1 sliced chilli (optional)
75 g/2-1/2 oz/1 cup fresh grated coconut
Salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon sugar

 

Wash well and strip leaves from stems. Shred finely with a sharp knife, combine with other ingredients and serve immediately. The flavour is slightly sour, slightly bitter.

Some people prefer this salad to be lightly cooked, if so bring a tablespoon of water and 1/2 teaspoon salt to the boil in a wok or pan, add all ingredients and toss over heat briefly, stopping before leaves lose their green colour.
