Jackfruit Mung Bean Sweet Soup ~ 绿豆糖水


I've frequently made this mung bean sweet soup or 'tong sui' during this crazy, hazy weather but this is the first time that I'm serving it with freshly shredded jackfruit or  大樹菠蘿 .     
An Indonesian friend gave me the idea for she said that it was the normal practice in her kampong.  I was a bit skeptical at first but I believe that there's no harm in trying some thing new.   The jackfruit did add some fragrance to the sweet soup and made it more delicious!
