Sweet Potota Sweet Drink & Cucumber Salad

I have boiled sweet potato sweet drink or tong sui for a long time. I bought a few sweet potatoes from a road side stall on our way home from morning walk.

Only 4 items needed: Sweet potato peeled and cut into bite pieces, smashed old ginger, cane sugar and water. Boil sweet potato with ginger, pandan or screwpine leaves, and add cane sugar when the potato is soften.
We had sweet potato tong sui for lunch.
There was some leftover julienned cucumber which I prepared for the assam laksa. I also have cranberries and pine nuts in the fridge.
Toasted sesame dressing was added to make a delicious salad.
I saw this cute poster on a wall of a hotel in Malacca.
Pink Wishbone flowers growing wild in my garden.
Sometimes I see them, sometimes I don't.


Where there is ignorance of God, crime runs wild;

but what a wonderful thing it is for a nation to know and keep his laws.

(Proverbs 29:18, The Living Bible-TLB)

  14. I didn't know you could make a drink out of sweet potato, how interesting, I'd love to give it a try. I use a lot of sweet potatoes, more and more instead of regular ones.

    1. Yes, do try and I hope you enjoy it. If you don't like ginger, just use sugar and omit the ginger.
