Dong Guai Soup

Errrmmm this post for my own reference, in case I forget how to get this soup done properly.

This is a recipe given by my masseur after my unfortunate incident. He said my inner body was cold, hence need something to fix it back.

His recipe was to boil 4 bowls of water with half a head of sliced dong quai (angelica) which is about RM5 for an hour on low fire. Then add in half of a small kampung chicken (not the choy yin kai but the malai kai variety) with skin and all. Boil for another 20 mins. Drink whilst hot, eat up the chicken if you like. According to him, it'll have 1 bowl of soup. He said the water can be adjusted based on how much soup I would like to have.

Dong Guai Soup

Based on my own experience, using my vision ware pot, I need to about 5 bowls of water on low heat (my stove is rather hot though even on low). By the end of 1 hour, I would have about 2 bowls of soup left. After another 20 mins with the chicken, I would have only 3/4 bowl soup. I also used skinned chicken cos I can't stand fatty soup :p

There... safely filed here :D

I think it's white is because not enough red dates or black dates??

I remember I drank a lot of those soups too.
