White Fungus Ginkgo Nut Dessert

When you feel you want an easy to go to dessert and a dessert which is nutritious, nourishing and soothing to your senses, let me introduce to you White Fungus Gingko Nut. Of course. Without a doubt. A dessert you just need to simmer after getting the ingredients and these ingredients are easily available. In hypermarkets. Otherwise, you wouldn't have wasted your time heading to the nearest Chinese Medical Halls and Chinese Medical Halls, there must one within your vicinity? I sure know so. White Fungus Gingko Nut. What a sweet smooth pleasure.  

30g white fungus (soak for 1/2 hour, remove the hard piece in the center and tear into pieces)
60g dried longan (soak for 20 mins)
160g gingko nuts
40g rock sugar (more or less) 
5 screwpine/pandan leaves (knot together)
3/4 liter of water

Add water,white fungus and pandan leaves into a pot.
Simmer over very low heat for about 1/2 hour.
By now, fungus will be soft and nicely doubled up.
Put in longan, gingko nuts and rock sugar.
Continue to simmer for another 20 mins.
Remove from heat.
Can be served hot or chilled.
