"Let's cook the sweet potato."
Translation:E hoʻomoʻa kākou i ka ʻuala.
What is the difference between kuke and ho'omo'a? When should you choose one over the other?
They are pretty much the same. kuke comes from cook, of course, and ho‘omo‘a is Hawaiian meaning make cooked. Ua mo‘a ka laiki means The rice is cooked, or by extension, the rice is ready.
