Thoughts Lead To Appreciation
I have just had an awesome drink for dinner.
The Piam Punch is very easy to make and takes less than half an hour to prepare and cook.
Why not give it a try and discover anew.
Preparation Time: 2 minutes.
Cooking Time: 20 minutes.
4 heaped tablespoons soya beans flour;
Some sugar to taste ~optional.
1. Mix or blend the flour and water to a thick paste or dough.
2. Transfer to a heat resistant vessel.
3A. Cook at moderate heat, stirring continuously to a dough.
B.i. Alternatively, place in an oven at 150 degrees Celsius for a total of 20 minutes.
ii. Remove from oven and stir at 8 minutes into heating and every 4 minutes thereafter.
4. Allow to cool.
5. Transfer to a blender and add the coconut and dates. Remember to deseed the dates first.
6.i. Add some water and blend to a light fluid beverage.
ii. Alternatively, add water to the cooked soy beans dough and manually mash to a light fluid.
iii. Chop the coconut, shred the dates and pour the two into the light fluid and stir.
The trial phase I prepared for a mid lunch snack used sugar as a sweetener.
During my evening stroll, I bought some coconut and dates, as substitutes for sugar.
The shredded dates gave the punch a milky texture, and of course, chopped coconut is super sweet as well.
I had my fill of the punch.
Certainly, there is the option of including milk in the recipe.
That I deliberately avoided to enable me determine the source of any abdominal discomfort I may experience.
Milk, a delicious food it is, disrupts my bowel movements, increasing peristalsis and ejection.
It has been some 9 hours since I drank the first glass of Piam Punch; I am yet to experience any unusual intestinal activities.
