Weight: 260g

Cincau Manis, also known as grass jelly or black jelly, is a traditional Indonesian dessert or drink made from the leaves of the Mesona chinensis plant. It is popular in Southeast Asia and is known for its unique texture and refreshing taste.

To make Cincau Manis, the leaves of the Mesona chinensis plant are boiled with water to extract their natural gelatinous properties. The resulting liquid is then sweetened with sugar or other sweeteners, giving it a mildly sweet flavor. The mixture is poured into molds or containers and left to set into a jelly-like texture.

Cincau Manis can be enjoyed in various forms:

  1. Jelly Dessert: Once the Cincau Manis sets, it is typically cut into small cubes or slices and served as a cold dessert. It can be enjoyed on its own or paired with other ingredients such as coconut milk, palm sugar syrup, or fruits.

  2. Beverages: Cincau Manis can also be used as an ingredient in cold beverages. It is often added to sweetened coconut milk, iced tea, or other refreshing drinks for added texture and flavor.

  3. Toppings: Cincau Manis can be used as a topping for shaved ice desserts, known as es cendol or es campur, where it is combined with various other ingredients like coconut milk, palm sugar syrup, fruit slices, and crushed ice.

Cincau Manis is readily available in Southeast Asian grocery stores or Asian specialty markets in the form of ready-to-use jelly blocks or canned varieties. However, if you prefer to make it from scratch, you can find recipes online that provide instructions on how to extract the gelatinous substance from Mesona chinensis leaves and prepare Cincau Manis at home.

It's worth noting that while Cincau Manis is generally considered safe for consumption, some individuals may have allergies or sensitivities to certain plant-based ingredients. If you have any concerns or specific dietary requirements, it is always a good idea to check the ingredients or consult a healthcare professional before consuming Cincau Manis or any other food or beverage.
