Yam Cream with Ginko Nuts

63 comments

 Since the weather is so gloomy and rainy in the past days, I decided to make this sweet soup (tong shui糖水) ~Yam Cream with Ginko Nuts for my family.  This recipe was adapted from this book 糖水冰品. It was an easy to follow recipe. This sweet soup was very fragrant with the melt-in-your yam cream and sweet pumpkin. As I'm not a big fan of ginko nuts, I'll use sago the next time when I make this sweet soup again.


Yam Cream with Ginko Nuts

     Ingredients:
     300g Yam, peeled and sliced
     800ml Water
     4 Pandan leaves

     100g Ginko nuts, shelled and steam for 20 minutes
     200-250g Pumpkin, cut into pieces, steamed for 10 mins or till soft
     165g Sugar

     11/2 tbsp Potato starch
     1/2 cup Water

      Methods:
  • Boil water, pandan leaves and sliced yam together, until yam becomes soft. Leave to cool and blend with liquidizer till fine and creamy, return to pot, add sugar and stir well to boil again, stir in potato starch water to thicken and add steamed ginko nuts and cooked pumpkin pieces.
  • Serve hot immediately.

  5. when i first read your title, i thought you made Or Nee. this osunds like a new kind of tong sui for me where the yams are being liquidised, nice!

  6. 香浓绵密,热呼呼地喝下去,别有一番风味。
    我同意,下次可以加点西米(sago)来增加口感。

  15. It looks wonderful! I had some delicious steamed yam desserts in China, my favorite was topped with sea-buckthorn jelly. I had no idea how to produce anything like that myself, though, so thank you so much for this recipe1 ;0

  16. Hi Anncoo, seems like I haven't been visiting you for a while but in fact, I did browse your blog sometimes (when I was eating) but just no time to post my message.Here I come to eat your tong shui. How much is the difference between this and bo bo cha cha? It looks just as tasty as bo bo cha cha to me!

  22. 小鱼~ 对啊。。 加上西米,一定更好吃:)

    Bee, I ever tried in a Teochew restaurant that they serve Or Nee with pumpkin. I thought this is common in serving Or Nee with Pumpkin.

    Right Min, have try. Very easy and simple tong sui, your family will love it.

    Quay Po~ right, I think Thai yam is the best.

    Jeannie, Besides pumpkin you can use sweet potato too.
