Es Cendol

Aisyah - @aisyahdiyo, Bekasi

Back to "Indonesian Culinary Photography"

To get the shape of the cendol, the mixture has to use a cendol mold. 
Es cendol originates from the Sundanese and is made with hunkwe flour or rice flour. The green color of cendol is obtained from natural colorants. I use homemade pandanus paste (pandanus leaves and suji leaves are mixed, then removed, and the sediment is used for coloring and the natural aroma).
To produce the spätzle form of the cendol, the mixture must be filtered in a cendol form.
Cendol is served with brown sugar sauce and pieces of jackfruit to enhance the flavor and aroma. Afterwards, it is added to a thick, cooked coconut milk sauce. Indonesia is indeed rich in culinary specialities. It is important to maintain and care for the diversity of delicacies and dishes.
