Sweet Potato Ginger Tong Sui

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

I had a taste of this type of tong sui in our frequently visited porridge stalls - Sweet Potato Ginger Soup few days ago. Since ginger has the ability of the getting rid of wind as Chinese believes, it's actually good time to prepare this sweet soup as Hubby was having GI upset for the past few days and on top of the reason will be my sweet tooth was craving for this lovely spicy taste of ginger in this sweet potato tong sui. Nothing beats the spicy taste of hot tong sui warming up my tummy especially in this rainy season. Simply heavenly taste!
