Water Chestnut and Red Date Drink

 Water Chestnut and Red Date Drink

Isn't it is refreshing and mouth watering?
These past few weeks, the weather is either hot or wet,
just like our coming 13th General Election schedule on
Sunday, 5 May 2013 (wink)
In my house, I have 3 voters except for my daughter who have
yet to reach her compulsory age to vote.
In this house earlier, there were 2 against 1 and now,
1 against 2.  You decide the answer...he he he.
Anyway, no matter what your choice is, just choose
wisely and not from your heart.  For me, I just want
harmony and peace for Malaysia.
This so called dessert or herbal drink is nutritional for our body.



I have forgotten to weigh all the ingredients but no worry, 
by seeing those picture on top, you will be able to have a rough 
estimation (agak-agak).


Put the clean and cut out seed from the red dates into a pot with
2 liter of water and boil.


Once you noticed your red dates are not dried and fluffy,
pour in the clean and cut water chestnuts into the boiling water.


Boil for another 15 minutes.   If you noticed that the water is getting
lesser, just pour in more.


Lastly, pour in honey rock sugar or any sugar that you desire
or available inside your kitchen.
Boil until the sugar has dissolved.


Switch off the fire and let it cool at one side.
Different people has different taste, some like to drink it lukewarm or cold.
To me, both also I like it.


This pot of drink was gone within three hours.
See, it means it is sedap!
Happy Cooking, Happy Eating & Vote Wisely.
