Water Chestnuts Dessert

Water chestnut is not usually seen in my hometown, but very common in Singapore. And it’s widely used in cooking savory food, dessert and making drinks.

Ingredients:

Peeled Water chestnuts (around 8)

Water 500g

Red dates (4-5 cut into halves and remove the seed)

Wolf berries several

Sugar 1 tablespoon (you can cut or add more according to your reference)

Corn starch 1 tablespoon (dissolve in 2 tablespoon water)

Black sesame ( optional)

1. Use a grater to grind water chestnuts into paste.

2. Put water chestnuts paste, red dates, wolf berries, and water into a pot.

3. Turn to high heat and bring water to boil.

4. Add in sugar. Turn to medium heat. Keep stirring to let sugar dissolve. Simmer for another 5 mins.

5. Pour in starch water. Keep stirring for 2 mins.

6. Serve hot and sprinkle sesame.
