Stir-fried golombon with Anchovies

Actually it is a type of edible grass that grows wild and abundantly especially at the highland area. Some call it 'sakot gipun' (Japanese grass). I'm not very sure about the relevance of this grass with Japan. But according to the elderly in my village, it's found growing in this area after the arrival of Japanese colonialism in the past. Supposedly it was brought accidentally through their pillow that’s filled with the flowers of this grass.

Golombon @ sakot Gipun
I prefer to call it vegetable because it can be cooked and  eaten. I really like it because it's free from pesticides and fertilizers. Very suitable when stir-fry with salted fish, dried shrimp or anchovy. Also more appetizing when served as pickled salad(see complete recipe in my coming post).
