Coconut and Red Bean Ice Cream


Sweet lollies ice cream. Back then, my all time favorite, sold at night markets/pasar malam. Akin a must buy sweet pleasure(Nescafe Ice Cream & Watermelon Mint Sorbet) each time I walk night markets, home made Coconut and Red Bean Ice Cream is mine. Top layer obviously made with our fresh coconut milk (Pandan Coconut Milk Jelly), beneath it, mushy and bitsy of crunchy red beans. My love for this ice cream eventually was completely forgotten once I stopped walking night markets. I can't be bothered anymore. I mean night market walking. Basically, I hate being among the many, speak also about parking and traffic madness along the road while pasar malam is in place. Crazy actually, moreover, carrying the things I have bought is something I like. But other Malaysians are still enthroning night markets where all is sold. Clothes, food stuffs, vegetables, seafood and what not (Coconut Mango Jelly, Mango Sticky Rice, Ondeh Ondeh & Sago Gula Melaka). Of course our local produce, I however prefer heading to the hypermarket just across my house.

That is that by far,  after so long, my craving for Coconut and Red Bean Ice Cream did rush in. I can't really and sincerely conclude why,  I had to make it. My version. Always and forever a simplified version (Semolina Ladoo), made in a jiffy, but  you have to patiently await the freezing part of it. For further simplifying the making, I was helped out by microwave oven for warming up carton coconut milk (Coconut Pandan Panna Cotta), red beans on the other hand needed fire catch on my stove and paper cups did the job for molding up. Coconut and Red Bean Ice Cream is splendidness. Only from Malaysia. Our dessert moment (White Fungus Ginkgo Nut Dessert, Fried Apple Fritters, Cherry Rice Pudding, Saffron Cinnamon Poached Pears & Mango Gula Melaka Sorbet ).

Ingredients (more or less depending on the numbers and size)
1/2 box (about 1 cup) coconut milk
1 cup red beans -soak if possible overnight or at least 4 hours
Sugar as needed
Method
Microwave sugar and milk (just to heat through).
Then stir this mixture to melt the sugar.
Keep aside.
Simmer red beans with some water till soft.
Remove from heat and combine in sugar.
Keep aside.
Pour coconut milk into cupcake cases (depending how much you prefer)
Freeze till hardened.
Bring out and top up with beans.
Freeze and tadaa!!!
Optional - stick in an ice-cream stick after freezing the coconut milk top layer, prior to topping red beans.
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Your support will rocket my success. Thank you everyone.
