My parents in law's domestic helper plucked some sweet potato leaves for us to bring home. Instead of stir-fry it with sambal, I change another way to cook it. I just stir-fry the sweet potato leaves with garlic, chili and fermented bean. This is another way to savor this precious home grown vegetables.
