Foochow people love this soup dish

It is usually prepared for ocassions like:
1) Birthdays
2) Festivals like Chinese New Year &
3) Celebration of a new born

In Sitiawan, 
during the olden days, at least @ my mother's time,
the new mother ate this for 30 days!!!

This is prepared every morning
in one big pot
both for the new mother &
guests when they come bearing gifts

It is a way of saying
'thank you'
'peace be with you'
to the guests

Of course,
mian sian and hard boiled eggs
are often added 
to complete the meal!

1/2 chicken, chopped into bite size
1 large piece ginger, shredded thinly or chopped
few pieces black fungus, soaked & cut
1 Tbsp rice wine residue
3 Tbsp rice wine
2 Tbsp sesame seed oil
2 large bowls of water
salt (optional)

1) heat up sesame seed oil & fry ginger until fragrant
2) add chicken pieces & fry until chicken meat shrink
3) add rice wine residue & fry quickly before adding water
    take care not to burn the rice wine residue
4) add black fungus pieces
5) when the soup boils & the chicken is tender, add rice wine & dish out 
6) serve hot
