Singapore Nyonya Breakfast

Mung Bean Congee
with doughnut

Mung Bean
Chinese believe that heat can cause all sorts of health problems. Mung beans are one of the best food to cure /prevent heat in the body. Mung beans are "Ying" or cool food.
Staying with Alex in Singapore, he has introduced me to some nyonya food he learned from his grandmother. This morning the maid served sweet mung bean congee with chinese doughnut. I was glad to get a cup of nyonya coffee as well!
* Nyonya - a term used for descendants of late 15th - 16th century Chinese immigrants to the Nusantara region dusing Colonial era.
