Sweet Potatoes Soup

Everybody is now displaying their winderful scones in their blogs, makes me drooling, but I can only bake tomorrow

So for today my post will be a sweet Asian dessert I love
Such a hearty simple dessert


Inspiration was from Sonia's site, thanks Sonia :)

What you need:

sweet potatoes, peeled and cleaned, cut
a few pandan leaves, tie into knots
1 block palm sugar
brown sugar (as desired)
a thumb size of young ginger, lightly smashed
a pot of water
  1. Bring to boil a pot of water 
  2. Add in sweet poatoes, pandan leaves, palm sugar, ginger and let simmer for 20-30 minutes
  3. (check ocassionally to avoid sweet potatoes turn too soft)
  4. Add in brown sugar to the desired sweetness
  5. Off heat and serve warm
