Dried Longan And Aloe Vera Tong Sui

The weather is hot and having been eating spicy food the past few weeks, I boiled some sweet dessert soup/tong sui with aloe vera to counter the heat in our body.  A friend gave me some aloe vera that she planted in her own garden.  Chilled them before serving and this is  the best cooling agent for our body.  I can have two bowls of this delectable sweet dessert at one go :)   The ingredients for this sweet dessert are

1 large blade of aloe vera - cut into cubes
2  screwpine leaves - tie into a knot
2 pieces of white fungus ( suet yee) - soaked for 5 mins, cleaned and squeeze dry
1 cup of dried longan
1 piece of gula melaka
1 litre of water
5 pieces of red dates


Pour 1 litre of water into a soup pot , add in the screwpines and red dates and boil till fragrant, add in the gula melaka and dried longans and cooked till the longans are  puffed out and the gula melaka has dissolved.  Add in the white fungus and and continue to boil for another 10 mins. Off the heat and add in the aloe vera cubes.   When the sweet soup has cooled down, chilled them in the fridge before serving.

Happy Mother's Day to Mommies  :)
