Es Siwalan Selasih

Ramadhan, the holy month, is just around the corner. During ramadhan we usualy serve something sweet and refreshing for the iftar (meal to break the fasting at maghrib time). Just like this easy one...


Ingredients:

1 tbs selasih (basil seed)
enough water to soak the seed

100 gr sugar (may be adjusted to your liking)
2 pandan leaves
1000 ml water

Siwalan
ice cubes


Methods:
Soak selasih in the water. Set aside.
Put sugar, pandan leaves, and water in a saucepan. Boil until the sugar dissolve.
Remove, set aside and let it cool.
Cut siwalan into small cubes. Set aside.

Servings: 
Put a small amount of siwalan, selasih, and ice cubes in a glass.
Pour in the sugary water. 
Enjoy!


'Marhaban ya Ramadhan'
 happy fasting to all moslem around the world
