Trotter in Sweet and Sour Vinegar

I wanted to cook this dish for years. Due to lots of preparation work from the recipe books, I have delayed it because of too much work.

Eat out for this dish is pricey.As many were teaching me the easiest way to cook this likeable dish, I have made it. Yay!, my hubby said, nice and he requested to add dark soy sauce which I omitted earlier because the black beans are bringing out the nice black colour.

Ingredients:-

Trotter, 1 whole leg chopped into bite sizes, boiled to remove fats and hair. Drain well and dry.
Young ginger, 200 gm, removed skin and cut into semi-thin slices or crushed chunks.
Melaka sugar, 1/2 piece, chopped finely
Salt, 1 tsp
5 tbsp Ghee Hiang Sesame Oil
Sweet Vinegar, 21/2 cups
Dark Soy Sauce, 1 tbsp
Black Beans, 200 gm soaked, oil-free fried and boiled
Cooking Method
1. Bring a pot of 1500 ml water to boil
2. In another sauce pan, heat up sesame oil
3. Saute Ginger till fragrant but not browned
4. Add in trotters and fry for a while to absord sesame oil and ginger flavours
5. Transfer trotters and black beans into pot of boiling water
6. Add Vinegar
7. Boil for 30 min on high heat and 10 min over low heat
(The boiling time will depend on the trotters' texture that you preferred).
