Watercress (Chinese: 西洋菜汤) is said to be among the oldest vegetables to be eaten by humans, and it continues to be a popular vegetable in Penang. Watercress is usually cooked as a soup. It is often found as an accompaniment at food stalls selling chicken rice and other rice dishes. At home, we make a meatier version of the soup which forms the main dish on the dinner table.
