White Radish Soup

Thursday, November 18, 2010


We used to make white radish (daikon) soup by just boiling the radishes with pork ribs, with some cracked peppercorns, until we tasted a version that was so good in Seri Kembangan, Serdang.

My university is in Serdang, Selangor and my elder brother was actually my senior. Yeah, we took the same course. When I was a freshie, he was almost graduating. After his graduation ceremony, he brought our family to this Hakka Stuffed Tofu shop in the Seri Kembangan Chinese Village. My brother will definitely order their radish soup and indeed, it was very very good. And from then onwards, we never cooked our radish soup the same way that we used to, but tried to recreate what we had from the shop.



White Radish Soup Recipe

200gm white radish, peeled and cut into slanting pieces
50 gm carrots, peeled and cut into slanting pieces
200gm pork loin or 300gm spareribs (blanched)
30gm raw peanuts, soaked for minimum 4 hours, best overnight.
1 Tbsp dried mussels, rinsed
6 red dates, seeds removed
10 white peppercorns, cracked with the sides of a cleaver
1 sprig green onion/scallion, thinly sliced
2L water
Salt to taste

1. Put water into a pot and bring to boil.
2. Put in everything else except green onions and salt.
3. Bring to a boil and turn to low heat and simmer for 2 hours.
4. Season with salt and serve.

10 lovely notes:

I love this soup and we usually boil it with roasted pork ribs. The last time I had this was in 2008 and I was admitted to the ER. Too much angin and my stomach can't take it, So no more radish soup for me :(

Hi Wendy,

I heard that radish with red carrot should not be cooked together. Somehow there is a substance in the radish that will kill the vitamin from the red carrots.

This is my favorite soup too. It's not suitable for those who is on medication.

I love radish soup. Mine uses three types of colours, white, green and red.

Will try your version one of these days.

Refreshing soup indeed! Did you use lean pork ribs? No sign of a lot of oil in the soup.

Gert,
Sorry to hear abt that.
Before that nothing's has happened before? So sudden? Gosh, must have scared you to bits.





Lisa,
Thanks for telling me this.





Little Inbox,
Yeah, heard it "fah" the medication





Edith,
I did that version too, about a year ago.





lena,
Oh, I hardly go to the wet market, so I can hardly get siu chu guat. If I ever bump into them, I'll get some.





Busygran,
I like to use pork loin. Less oil and sweet.
