Bring the stock to boiling
Add the dried prawns and chilli paste
When the stock smells aromatic add the coconut milk
When the gravy start to boil, add the sweet potato leaves

This species is better for cooking lemak because the stems are crunchy if not overcooked.

This is baby sweet potato leaves which is very nice fried with garlic or with fermented bean paste.
