Sarabba (Spiced Coconut Milk)

This traditional Indonesian drink is originally from Makassar in Sulawesi and it is not just delicious but also super great in warming the body in cold (rainy or winter) days!

Did I mention it’s healthy as well? 🙂

1 can of coconut milk, shake before using – 389 ml

1 fresh ginger, about 65-75 grams in weight

1 piece of screwpine leaf, tied in knot

2 cloves

1 cinnamon stick about 1 adult point finger in length

30 g coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar or regular palm sugar)

a pinch of salt

2-3 tbsp sweetened condensed milk (or 1 tbsp maple syrup!) – sometimes I omit it and it is still delicious!

Char ginger until soften, then bruise it completely

Place ginger, clove, screwpine leaf, and cinnamon stick in a pot

Pour in shaken coconut milk, bring to boil in high heat

Turn down heat to low and let mixture simmer for 5 minutes

Add palm sugar and salt, stir to dissolve

Strain mixture into a serving cup and stir in sweetened condensed milk

Serve immediately (with a couple of coconut cookies…hhhm.mm..m YUMMO!)

Enjoy 🙂
