Three ingredients; Coconut milk, gula melaka and pandan flavoured vermiform (wormlike) pasta aka cendol . You would think that it would be easy to get it right, right? Then why do so many stall holders get it wrong? Well for one, most take the easy way out and buy ready made cendol which usually comes in eerie ghostbuster green and served half frozen. The market is also flooded with cheap gula melaka which has been adulterated with sugar and other extenders and freshly squeezed coconut milk is replaced with ones which has been heated to ultra high temperatures such that they can be stored in your home bunker for years in preparation for wartime food shortages.
