Salte Fish
Selera Kampung yang digemari ramai. Terdapat berbagai cara untuk memasak sayur keladi ini, tetapi saya lebih gemar memasak Tumis Asam cara tumis darat. Selalunya Tumis Darat ini akan dimasak bersama dengan ikan masin tetapi untuk resipi ini saya masak bersama dengan ikan pari. Enak dimakan bersama nasi panas, ulam-ulaman sambal belacan dan ikan masin
