Vegetarian Sweet Potatoes Dessert (Tong Sui) Recipe


Sweet potatoes (scientific name, Ipomoea batatas) belong to the family of Convolvulaceae. Sweet potato plants originated from South America. The young leaves from sweet potato plants can be eaten as vegetable and are popular among Asians. Sweet potatoes are rich in Beta Carotene and are known to be able to stabilize the glucose level in diabetes patients.
I cook this simple sweet potato dessert (Tong Sui) for my family.

Ingredients
Sweet potatoes, 3 pcs (yellow, orange, purple), remove skin and cut into 1x1x1cm cubes
Water, 5 rice bowls
Sugar to taste
Screw pine leaves( pandan), 5 pcs

Boil five bowls of water and add in the screw pine leaves. Put the sweet potato cubes into the boiling water. Add sugar to taste when the potato turns soft. Best eaten hot or you can also chill it before serving.
