Nothing quenches thirst like a refreshing bowl of cendol on a hot day. The feel of ice shavings combined with creamy coconut milk and the sweetness of the palm sugar all melting into the ice slowly going down the parched throat is truly heavenly. This shavings of ice dessert is a delicious local dessert that can be found anywhere in any state in
and has captured the
hearts of many Malaysians and tourists from all over the world. Malaysia
A normal serving of cendol will have shavings of ice and scoops of diluted coconut milk with bits of cooked dough dyed green in colour and scoops of sweetened red beans and a generous drizzle of palm sugar syrup to give it is signature sweetness.
As many of you will know that I was ‘ babysitting ‘ my Piggy Jo in Semenyih during the first week of CNY , as many of the Uni students have gone back for the short CNY break and she can't afford to take a week off for the celebrations. She is quite pressured in PhD work so I told her that I will come up and stayed with her so that she will be lonely there :) With this full of fun momsie with her, life will be boring for her after all LOL! Bonding time is the right word to use here not ‘ babysitting’. I better add this line here or the Piggy will trottered me to death :p
I had a wonderful time there with her the past week and this Cendol is one of the Malaysian sweet desserts that we both like very much . We had this at ‘ Little Penang Café ‘ at the Curve. Roadside ones are rather unhygienic ( of course ,this is my opinion ), I dont know whether they actually wash the used bowls and spoons with soapy water or just rinse the bowls and spoons with a pail of water , thus we we ended having this at Litttle Penang Cafe for their famous
Have a great day :)
