Sweet Potato Leaves

This is the Sweet Potato leaves, which is a favourite with the locals. One could stir-fry it with sambal chilli, or with fuyi (fermented tofu, I think).

Anyone has good recipe for a stir-fry sweet potato dish? I think you can find this dish in some Peranakan Restaurants as well as in the Soup Restaurant (I think it was Ah Kong's favourite).

This plant grows very fast. So in times of hardship, this would be a plant to consider. (^^) I believe it must be a valuable source of food during the WWII times.
