Ais Kacang or mostly known as “ABC” (acronym for Air Batu Campur or Mixed Ice) is a Malaysian dessert that is perfect to refresh one’s senses. In the past, it was made of only shaved ice and red beans but today, the dessert has been given a sophisticated appeal and came in bright colours and with all kinds of fruit cocktails and dressings. These include attap seed (palm seed), sweet corn, grass jelly, jelly cubes, cendol, peanuts (kacang) and ice cream. The final topping will be evaporated and condensed milk and coconut milk will be drizzled over the mountain of ice together with red rose syrup and sarsi syrup.
Traditionally, the big ice cube will be shaved by hand using a special ice machine but today, it is made easier with a motorized machine. In Malaysia, Ais Kacang can be easily found in coffee shops, food courts and market centres.
