Sea Coconut Dessert


Sea coconut dessert with dried longan and water chestnut

I found a pack of fresh sea coconut dessert in wet market.
And I did not have it for a long time.
I meant the fresh sea coconut and not the cane type.

The most troublesome part was to remove the skin of the sea coconut and the water chestnut. I did it while watching Astro.

Recipe:
Bring 1 pack of sea coconut, 1 pack of water chestnut, few tablespoons of dried longan and some pandan leaves to boil. Then simmer for 2 hours and sweeten with brown sugar in pieces.


This is how the fresh sea coconut looks like. Sea coconut is good at relieving internal heat from body.

just came across your sharing. Actually you can use spoon to remove the light brown skin of the seacoconut. Easier and safer than use a knife. Cheers
