There are actually two types of black fungus, one is the thick black type and another is the thinner and softer type which the Cantonese called it ‘Wen-Yu’.

Wen-Yu do not have the same chewiness as the black fungus which is known as ‘Muk-Yu’. However, they tasted just as good and it’s more suitable for stir-frying or light braise.

  • 50g Sweetpeas
  • 30g Carrot (sliced)
  • 8-10g Soft black fungus – Wen Yu (presoaked in water)
  • 1pc Onion (sliced)
  • Corn flour
  • Water
  • Light soy sauce
  • Pepper


  1. In a saucepan, boil 2 cups of water with a dash of oil and sugar. When water is boiling, put in sweetpeas and carrot then the fungus and boil till 50% soft. Thaw away the water.
