Had a craving for this dessert the other day and decided to use some of the longans I was saving for use during my confinement to 'chase' the craving away. It's a very simple dessert which can be served cold too. I usually buy this at the Zion Road Hawker center where a grumpy man sells it at a simple dessert store. You can choose to add gingko nuts too for additional crunch but this was perfect the way it is here in Sweden.
Ingredients (for 1 greedy eater)
A handful of dried longans
1 small sweet potato, peeled and cut into cubes
Some rock sugar for taste
1.5 bowl of water
2-3 blades pandan leaves (optional)
- Bring to boil the water in a small pot and add all the ingredients. Boil it for about 15-20 minutes until the sweet potato has soften.
- Remove the pandan leaves and serve hot. You can chill it in the fridge or add ice if you like it cold.
