With such the intense heat and haze, taking such soup is good for the body to ward off those heatiness in the system.
I didn't want it to be too liquidity thus I actually reduced the water by 500ml. This method has no wastage at all.
Personally I find it easy to consume as a drink rather than 糖水, unfortunately I didn't manage to fool my kiddos though.
Thanks VO for sharing this recipe.
Note: If I were to make this again, I think I will leave some melon cubes instead for bites.
What you need:
2kg wintermelon (deskin and deseed)
1l of water
rock sugar to taste
4 -5 pandan leaves
Cube wintermelon to 1"X1".
Add water and pandan leaves and boil for 30 mins.
Add rock sugar and adjust according to taste. Continue to simmer till sugar melted.
Using a hand blender, blend the wintermelon.
Serve either hot or cold.
