the cendol is a trans southeast asian dessert that you can taste even in thailand, vietnam, singapore, myanmar, indonesia and here in malaysia. It is one of my favorite Southeast asian desserts and cendol or chendol is made from coconut milk, a worm-like jelly made from rice flour with green food coloring (usually derived from the pandan leaf), shaved ice and palm sugar. Next to these basic recipe, other ingredients such as red beans, glutinous rice, grass jelly, creamed corn and the taste is oh so heavenly. the chendol is available everywhere like in food stalls or food courts, markets, malls, hawker centers and hotels. the price of a chendol in a glass is about RM 5.
