Ju Hu Zhar (Shredded Jicama and Cuttlefish)

My mom bought 2 Grater and Slicer set from Penang.She gave one set to me.It's quite hard to find a good grater and slicer set no matter how much it's.Well,first of all,my mom would like to try out the grater sharpness.She ask me to help her to grate jicama (sengkuang in Malaya) and I find her grater set is really good!.Here you mom cook her Ju Hu Char..We eat it as snack...
I wrapped Boston Lettuce with Ju Hu Char

My mom homemade sambal's spicy sauce is a must for this dish!!
My second's really good!!
I add extra spicy sambal belacan to my wrap
My mom look high and low for Boston lettuce..Izzit Boston lettuce they called here??..She go to Sentul Pasar,Chow Kit Road Market and at last found this bunch of lettuce at Jinjang market..Said it's come from Thailand!!
This is what you need to complete this "Ju Hu Char"
Shredded Jicama,carrot,shitake mushroom,sliced pork and shredded cuttlefish...add in some salt to taste..
It's really easy dish to cook...just need all the right ingredients and there you go.....Since we have a very sharp grater,my mom want to make Kerabu Mango for me to try...stay tune for my mom kerabu mango!!

Yummy! You know this is one of my favorites right? :) That looks like green leaf lettuce as boston lettuce normally looks like a cup when peel.
