Mung Beans and Sweet Potatoes Soup (Tong Shui)

Mung Beans and Sweet Potatoes Soup (Tong Shui)

Kindly excuse the colour of the above pic, due to my lack of skills instead of making it look real and better, I turned it looking a bit retro which reminded me of photos taken by my dad in the 70s.

This tong shui is one of the simplest but big in taste! Just boil the mung (green) beans in some water until they're soften before adding the orange sweet potatoes. The sweet potatoes that I've bought is the easy to cook variety, hence do not need to cook it for long. I've used gula melaka (palm sugar) for this tong shui which is the key ingredient to enhance the taste.

I like this to be serve cold but it's as good when it's hot.

This tong shui seems like is easy to cook. I think it is suitable for the undergraduate (like me, hehe ^^) to try out in the hostel.
