Ice Kacang


Ice Kacang is one of my favourite Malaysian desserts and I am learning that not everyone outside of Malaysia thinks it is as wonderful.  It is shaved ice with various flavors – very similar to a snow cone but so much better. I like it in its purest form (which I found is almost impossible to find in Kuala Lumpur). Everyone likes different variations. Technically it is shaved ice with red syrup, gula melaka syrup, some corn, red bean, grass jelly, cubes of agar agar and cendol. Evaporated milk is drizzled over the mountain of ice.
