Verdict: Make this when you are feeling heaty! Tastes great warm, room temperature or iced. I love chewing on the cooked barley bits (adds bulk to your tummy like vege).
- Rinse 1/4 cups of barley (same process as rinsing rice). Rinse 2 times.
- Put in a pot: barley + 2L water + 1 pandan leaf (tear to release aroma)
- Bring to boil then simmer for 30 mins, or until barley grains are soft and cooked. Leave pot lid open halfway.
- Add sugar to taste (I added 4 tablespoons of brown sugar – this makes the drink brownish in colour, white sugar or sugar syrup can also be used).
