Most of the Malaysian Chinese must have heard of Lei Cha. Lei Cha is actually a traditional Hakka rice dish, it consist of nuts, tofu and vegetables both preserved and fresh. The name Lei Cha (??) means grounding of tea. Lei is an action of grinding and pounding of tea.

However, the recipe remain as traditional Ho Po Hakka Lei Cha since the ingredients are still the same. Due to the greenness of the dish, Lei Cha was not the most popular Hakka food among Malaysian Chinese. However, for those who love it, they will definitely be rewarded with a lower cholesterol levels. To make this dish even healthier, we are matching it with Thai King Brown Rice.

There are enormous benefits of brown rice, to name few of it: hel
