Red Rubies In Coconut Milk

Serves: 4 | Preparation Time: 20 mins


  • 1 cup UFC Velvet Coconut Milk Unsweetened
  • 10 water chestnuts, peeled and diced
  • 4 tbsp palm sugar
  • 5 drops red food colouring
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 cup shaved ice
  • 1 cup sweet jack fruit 


  1. Mix water chestnut with 1 tbsp of palm sugar and 5 drops of red food colouring with 2 tablespoons water. Coat the water chestnut in the mixture until they are all evenly red and let it sit for a few minutes.
  1. Add coloured water chestnuts to the tapioca flour and mix until they are well coated. Take them out of the flour and then, using a spray bottle, mist them with water and coat them with flour again. Strain them with a mesh sieve or colander to get rid of the excess flour.
  1. Place the coated water chestnuts in a pot of boiling water and cook for approximately one minute. Once they float to the surface, remove and immediately put them into a pot of ice-cold water.
  1. Swiftly heat 3 tbsp of palm sugar and 1 cup of UFC Velvet Coconut Milk Unsweetened, just until the sugar dissolves. Allow to cool. Add shaved ice, water chestnuts and jack fruit to serve
