Sweetie sweetie

Was down at the supermarket and saw three different types of sweet potatoes. On impluse, I bought all the variety. Then it got me busy looking for a recipe.

Since, we never eaten Sweet Potatoes in Syrup (Vietnamese Style), I decided to try it.


What you need

320g sweet potatoes
80g each of sago
30g green bean vermicelli (cut to shorter length)
1/2 cup coconut milk (I substituted it with fresh milk)
5 tbsp sugar
2 cups water


Wash sago clean, soak for 20 min, boil over medium heat until translucent, pour out and soak in ice water.

Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into cubes

Soak green bean vermicelli in hot water till soft. Then in cold water to prevent it from being sticky.

Put sweet potatoes in water and boil till soft.

Add vermicelli, sago and sugar over medium heat for 5 mins.

Pour in coconut milk and a 1/4 tsp salt.

Bring to boil

The quantity required for the above was just a portion of what I have bought. In order to finished it up, I did another batch the traditional way. Sweet Potatoes Tong Shui


This one only requires ginger, pandan leave and sugar.

I found packets of sesame seed in my fridge while I was cleaning it up. So let's have Sesame Chicken for dinner.


What you need

70g plain flour
50g corn flour
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
60g sesame seeds
4 pcs of chicken breasts
1 egg, beaten with 1 tbsp water oil for frying


Sift flours, pepper, paprika and stir in salt and sesame seeds.

Dip chicken into egg mixture and then coat well in seasoned flour.

Heat frying pan, add oil and fry chicken till golden brown.
