Sister E cooks this for her family very often. She usually cooks a big pot and they drink it as drinking water.
This is very similar to what I've cooked before, the savoury version (but still sweet), minus the meat.
DD3 kept pointing to the pot and said something I couldn't understand. After some serious conversation, I finally understood what she said. She had wanted me to take a picture of her pointing at the pot.
I cooked this with lesser water as I wanted it to be consumed as a soup instead of a drink.
