Air Mata Kucing 罗汉果龙眼冰糖炖冬瓜水 Nyonya CookingAir Mata Kucing is a classic must-have when visiting Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur. This refreshing drink or dessert is very popular among the locals. Not only nutritious, delicious and thirst quenching, it is rated the top 6th most delicious drink by CNNrecipesair-mata-kucingOne of the most popular drinks in Malaysia is probably Air Mata Kucing. It is a herbal drink which is nutritious and refreshing especially when the sun is scorching. It is also extremely delicious. It is no wonder that Air Mata Kucing secured the 6th place in the list of the 50 most delicious drinks from around the world. The herbal taste in this healthy drink is not at all over-powering. In fact, it is soothingly refreshing. So, be sure to try this nutritious and healthy drink.Air Mata Kucing in Kuala Lumpur was made popular by a stall stationed at a street corner in ChinatownPetaling Street.This stall has a history of more than three decades and had even expanded its business to shopping malls. The popularity of the herbal drink is obvious with the long queue in front of the stall daily. Many years ago, the drinks were sold served in metal bowls when customers enjoy the drink at the stall. However, this is no longer the practice these days as styrofoam cups are now used.To create this delicious drink at home, only four ingredients are needed. The base of this drink is made out of monk fruit which is also known as Lo Hon Guo in Chinese. It gives colour to the drink and also acts as a natural sweetener. The abundant benefits of monk fruit are widely known in the world of traditional Chinese medicine. Dried longan which is high in vitamins is also added to this drink to sweeten it. In this recipe, I choose the darker coloured dried longan which is sweeter and more intense in flavour although it is absolutely fine to use the lighter coloured dried longan too. The classic Air Mata Kucing that is made popular by the stall in Petaling Street Chinatown is quite sweet as rock sugar is added to it. Since it is served with lots of ice cubes, the sweetness is somehow diluted. Rock sugar is optional, if you do not like the drink too sweet.Fresh winter melon strips make this herbal drink extra special as they soften during the boiling process, thus giving the melt-in-the-mouth feel while drinking. This is definitely a delightful drink not to be missed. Serve it hot or cold with lots of ice cubes, according to your preference.Foodies need your help Contribute to the subtitles here timedtext_videovG6IF_VA7ABUrefshareRELATED RECIPE IDEASNyonya Coconut Milk Dessertrecipesbo-bo-cha-chaApple and Snow Fungus Souprecipesapple-and-snow-fungus-soupWatercress Souprecipeswatercress-soupPear with White Fungus Souprecipesshredded-pear-with-snow-fungusMango Lassirecipesmango-lassiChocolate Malt Drinksrecipesmilo-dinosaur-and-godzillaNew Asian recipe ideas are published regularly.
