Stir-fry Sweet Potato Leaves

Hi, Sorry for not logging in for a while as I was busy with other things.

My mom's "hae bee hiam" is very hot, the ingredients are very basic, ie. dried chillies, chilli padi, dried shrimps and shallots. The "ikan bilis" shown above is added later after I fried the "hae bee hiam" with cooking oil till fragrant. Now ready to use it to fry with any vegetables. For example, long beans, brinjal, cabbage, lady fingers, wing beans, sweet potato leaves and so on..

All time favourite dish. Yummy!
