4. Pour the cloured water chestnuts in flour mixture and coat them evenly.
5. Shake coated water chestnuts through colander to remove excess flour. (Too much of flour will make the ruby gooey.)
6. In a pot of water, put in the coarse sugar and 2 pandan leaves. Bring to boil. Add in the water chestnuts and let it boil till they float up. Use a pair of chopsticks to stir to separate the watre chestnusts whilst cooking.

8. To make the syrup, bring castor sugar, 1 cup water and 2 pandan leaves to boil. Let it cool before pouring into a container to refrigerate till ready to serve.
9. In a container with 1 cup water, pour in approx. 10 tbsp of syrup and drain out the water chestnuts into container. Refrigerate till ready to serve.

11. Place everything inorder on a table. In a small bowl, scoop a spoonful of all ingredients, except for coconut milk which you will need about half of the small bowl. Lastly, put in the crushed ices. (It will be more ideal if you have an ice shaver.)

I've forgotten to take the pic of the final product because was busy serving the desserts. :P

Sound easy right! Try making this yourself and remember to take a pic for me, ya! :)
