Candied Winter Melon And Barley Drink 冬瓜糖薏米水
A very popular drink served at most Malaysian coffee shops; while adults are having their coffee or tea sweetened by condensed milk, kids are happily sipping this while waiting for their wanton soup or lo mai kai to arrive. I decided to place this in the same catagory of leong cha as it has the same "miracle power" of removing excessive heat from our body. This is another drink being made regularly back home when the weather turns hot and humid or too much fried food is consumed.
100g of rock sugar
200g of barley, washed
150g of candied winter melon
2 l of water
Simmer for 40 minutes, serve it warm or chilled.
