CoCo's Sweet Barley Drink
Here's a super nutritious drink that only needs TWO simple steps. It would be a crime not to pamper your loved ones and yourself to this drink!
1. Boil a big handful of barley (I recommend Ayam brand) with 2 pandan leaves in 2 big soup bowls of water.
2. After 1 hour (30 minutes for pressure cookers), add rock sugar for taste. How much to add depends on personal taste.
I like to put the cooled drink in bottles and put it into the fridge. Nothing like a chilled barley drink on a hot day!
TIP: My Mom taught me this. Usually if you buy Pandan leaves, it comes in a HUGE bunch. Wash it, trim off the brown parts and tie it up in bundles. You can then freeze these bundles and they can last so much more longer! When you need them, just take them out of the freezer and into the pot! Brilliant!
