  1. Dear Rose,
    I was looking for Chendol recipe and lo and behold, I chanced on your website and found it! By the way, can I use “Gula Jawa” or Palm Sugar instead of Gula Melaka?

    By the way, I have been taking boiled crushed lemon grass as drink as I heard that it is very good for the body cells to make them healthy by getting rid of the bad cells.

    I will remember you in my daily prayers.

    May God continue to bless you and keep you in His Love.
    Best Regards.
    Josephine

  2. Thanks dear,
    So sweet of you for sharing and keeping me in prayers.
    I love the fragrance of lemon grass. During my confinement, I used to boil a big bundle of it in water and used it for my bath. They said it helps get rid of wind in the body.

    For a firmer chendol, you can add a bit of rice flour. Gula Melaka comes from Malacca, Gula Jawa from Indonesia, they are the same actually.

    May God bless you with abundance.
    Rose

  4. It is fine to just use gula jawa. The syrup will just have a darker colour.

  9. Hi Jello,
    You can find the chendol mould in shops selling cooking utensils or you can make one by making perforations on a metal tray.

  10. Dear Rose,
    I like the rich coconut milk taste but it is very rich and can be fattening. I have substituted the coconut milk with Organic unsweetened Soy Milk . The brand I used is “just Organic” soy milk by Aldi stores in Australia. It tastes just as nice and minus the fat.

    God Bless,
    Doris

  11. Hello Rose,
    I would really like to try out your recipe but I am unable to find Tepung Hoen Kwee the Indonesian flour. I was able to find mung bean flour from the India shop, do you think its the same thing please? Will really appreciate your advice please. Thank you. Wee Lee

  12. Hi everyone,i’m a great fan of cendol. Rose’s recipe is a great one!

    Meanwhile, if anyone of you finds home-cooking a little troublesome, allow me to recommend a nice cosy place that serves delicious authentic nyonya cendol at very reasonable prices.

    A friend of mine brought me there the other day. It’s at No. 41-01, Jalan Austin Heights 3, Taman Mount Austin, Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia.

  14. Hi Rose and all,

    I like cendol. I usually get my fix from the mobile stall in taman tun dr ismail. But i’ve started watching and noting down what i eat. However it is extremely difficult for me to find the nutritional values of cendol; how many calories, fat, carbs, and protein it has. I’m not on some strict diet, and i exercise plenty, but everything in moderation right? If I have a craving for cendol i’ll have it…but everything in moderation right? If anybody has a rough idea of these elusive cendol facts, please share.
