Since half of the family members are on vegetarian diet today, we had Stir Fried Flat Noodles and Yellow Noodles for lunch together with Sweet Potato Ginger Soup.
It is simple, economical and fast to cook. Here are the ingredients.
350 - 400 gm orange colour sweet potatoes - skinned and cut wedges
3-4 screwpine [pandan] leaves - knotted
1.2 litres water
75 gm sugar
1 knob of old ginger - lightly bruised
- Put all ingredients except sugar in a pot. Boil on medium high heat until the sweet potatoes are soft and has the fragrance of ginger [about 1/2 an hour].
- Add sugar to taste.
- Off fire, serve hot or warm with Stir Fried Noodles.
- The soup bowl is one of my grandma's collection used only during this 'Kew Ong Yeah' festival.
