Nourish Your Lungs

Got this recipe from a good friend who migrated to Spore. (Tiger, Miss u!) Anyway she is good in cooking. Superbly good. (Tiger, still waiting for your Mushroom and Pumpkin Soup Recipe!)
Anyway, here's what she asked me to boil for my Jayden when she heard he was abit unwell last time. This recipe is to:

  • Nourish lungs (esp those that just recovered from coughing)
  • Dissolves phlegm
  • Cool the body
  • Reduce Coughing
Here's what you need:

seacoconutlohonko
Sea Coconut, Rock Sugar (gula Batu- i used the honey ones), Snow Fungus, Lo Hong Ko and dried Logans.

seacoconutlohonko2
Clean it up and boil for 4 hours.

And serve... All within +/- Rm5 budget.

Okayla, no mood to write long long. I'm just like her, no motivation to blog so long.....anymore.

Enjoy your week ahead!

  20. SASHA! WO AI NI! This is great. The pictures are so clear as well. For those of you wondering where to get the Sea Coconut, you can get at the Pasar Malam or wet marketing (Vege Seller).

    Snow Fungus is very good. I am a weak person so I takes this Tong Sui a lot to help to recover. I took this tong sui every once a week or 2, months before my wedding last year so I dont have to suffer from sore throat. And it helps! it wont be too cooling because of the mixture between loh han quo and longan. Plus its good for skin.

    Sasha, I will give u my mushroom soup recipe soon. Will post it on my blog. Pls wait a little while as I will be preparing a party for Mike's wedding.
