释义

名词

一种流行于东南亚的甜品,其甜汤的材料以椰糖和椰浆为主。马来语cendol 的音译。

DEFINITION

Noun

A popular dessert in Southeast Asia consisting mainly of coconut/palm sugar (gula melaka) and coconut milk. It is the transliteration of the Malay word "cendol”.

由来

  • 据说源自于印尼爪哇,是巽他人(Sundanese)喜欢吃的在地甜品。原先在那里所使用的材料相当简单,先将砂糖椰子树(sugar palm)的萃取物做成面粉,面粉煮后呈粘稠状制作成粉条,之后以食品染料将粉条染成绿色,再淋上椰糖和椰浆。
  • 在新加坡,这道甜品也会加上刨冰和淋上椰奶,再加上红豆、玉米、亚答籽等材料,吃起来更美味爽口。

ETYMOLOGY

  • Chendol is said to have originated from Java, Indonesia, and is a local dessert popular among the Sundanese. The original ingredients used are quite simple. First, a flour is made using the extract of the sugar palm. It is then boiled into a thick paste before being made into noodle-like strands. The strands are then dyed using green food colouring and sprinkled with gula melaka and coconut milk.
  • In Singapore, this dessert also consists of shaved ice and coconut milk, which is then topped with ingredients such as red beans, sweet corn and atap seed, making it even more delicious and refreshing.
