    Yes,my mum used to make this too. Many years ago it was the rage to have fresh'Gum Jum'in stir-fry. Fresh ones are available in Camerons, it's a flower, bright yellow in colour, just pluck it before it ripens. But now this dish has faded.

  6. I love this dish! I would have this with a condiment of sliced chili padi, soy sauce and a squeeze of lime juice! Sounds weird? But I love to dip the chicken in the soy sauce and top with the chili padi! :)

    Steamed chicken is quite common in Chinese cuisine. You may give it a try to see whether you like it.

    Yes, sounds weird to me. I'd prefer your dip to go with poached chicken.

    I think most boys do not like steamed dishes, fried would be their choice.
