Leng Chee Kang
Just want to share what i did today...other than the normal cooking lah.
My version of Leng Chee Kang is quite simple. All i do is visit a chinese herbal/drug store & tell him/her you want to buy stuff for leng chee kang. He can suggest or you can tell what you want.
Refer photo above, clockwise from top left:
1. Lotus seed, dried longan, almond-like nuts & lo-han-ko (the dark greenish round fruit;wash and just crack the skin a little bit)
2. White fungus, soak in water for about 1 hour.
3. Sugared winter melon (halwa/gula kundur)
4. Honey comb sugar (or rock sugar)- add last before serving
Boil everything except honey comb sugar. I use my rice cooker, set to 2 hours , close lid and leave to boil.
Sugared winter melon actually provides sweetness to the leng chee kang; i don't add sugar into mine, however you can add honeycomb sugar if you like- it dissolves in the hot leng chee kang.
