This week I’ve been visiting one my favourite Southeast Asian cities: Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia.

Malaysia has a wide range of influences when it comes to food, so I roamed the busy streets in search of something to stop that rumble in my tummy.

Eventually, the sizzling heat became too much, so I called into a local ‘hawker’, a kind of street-food canteen, looking for something to cool me off.

My prayers were answered when I came across this breathtaking, if bizarre, dessert called ‘Ais Kacang’ (Ice Ka-Chung).

Ais Kacang translates to ‘ice beans’, a name that I understood after I took my first bite and was left with mouthful of sweetcorn and kidney beans! Not something that you’d find in an English dessert.

These unlikely veges are mixed in with shredded ice, ice-cream, basil seeds, grass-jelly and a number of fluorescent syrups that give the dish its unique sweetness.

But it doesn’t stop there! The whole thing is drizzled with coconut milk to create a creamy refreshing treat that’s a perfect solution to the sweltering heat.

The jelly at the bottom might look a little gross, but don’t let that put you off. If you’re ever in Malaysia you must try this dessert.
