Vegetarian Chap Choi (Chap Suet, Mixed Leftovers Vegetables) Soup Recipe

Normally the Chinese descendents in Malaysia would cook this soup whenever they have lots of leftover dishes especially during Chinese New Year. Instead of using leftover dishes I used all the leftover vegetables that were not used up for my family reunion dinner. There are many versions but I would like to separate it into two types; thick and thin soup variety!
The thick soup variety is packed with flavours and is very sour. The thin soup ones are a little milder. Which types is better? It actually depends on your preference and taste buds!

Chinese mustard (Gai Choy), portion up to your preference
Carrots, 2 pcs, cut into chunks
Assam Keping (Assam Fruit slice), 2 pcs
Tomato, 3 pcs, cut into four
Salted Plums, 3 pcs
Pepper corns, 1 teaspoon
Dried chilies, 5 stalks
Vegetable oil or olive oil, 2 table spoons
Salt to taste
A little sugar
Put water in to a pot and bring to a boil. Add in the ingredients and cook until the mustard turn a little brownish in colour. Add salt and sugar to taste. You can balance the sourness by adding more sugar to your preference. Serve with white rice.
