Cendol, cold drink of sugar and coconut
In order to sweeten the Tjendol, a sugar syrup made from brown sugar or gula djawa. Brown sugar is ideally suited to his pleasant caramel flavor. Also, granulated sugar for a tasty flavor added to the tjendol strings.
Mix the thendol the rice flour with the cornstarch, salt, 3 tablespoons granulated sugar in a pan. Stir in 0.5 liters of cold water little by little. Add a few drops of food coloring. Bring it on medium heat, stirring to boil. Turn heat to low and let the thick “porridge” (still stirring) in a few minutes gently cooked.
Fill a deep dish half way with cold water and ice cubes. Put a colander in the bowl so that it just hangs in the water. Press the hot spoon by spoon to the colander, so strings pap “tjendol” in cold water fall.
Spoon the tjendol directly into 4 tall glasses, fill the glass with ice cubes. Pour the sugar syrup and coconut milk over it and serve with large spoons to stir everything together.
Note: For a different taste and a different color, you can instead of gula djawa syrup .. rose syrup (pink color) or hard green pandan syrup) use.
