This is a fuss-free dessert. Everyone can cook this. To cook this, you can either dump everything in a slow cooker or to cook it on the stove. I prefer the latter. It won't take very long as the orange sweet potato turn soft very fast.
Sweet Potato Dessert 番薯糖水
300gm of orange sweet potato
1 piece of ginger, about 2 thumb-sized, bruised
6 pandan leaves, tied into knobs
1200 ml water
Brown sugar to taste.
1. Peel the sweet potato. Use "cut & tear" method to prepare the potato into bite-size. This will create uneven surface to the potatoes which will increase its surface area to shorten the cooking time.
2. Bring water to boil in a pot. Add in the pandan leaves and ginger to simmer for 5 minutes.
3. Pour in the sweet potato and let it simmer under medium heat until it turns soft.
4. Season with brown sugar about 15 minutes before the dessert is ready. Let the dessert cool down a bit in the wok (with cover) before serving.
