One of my favorite Vietnamese Dessert Recipes is Worm Jelly/Cendol with Mung Bean Sweet Soup (Chè Bánh Lọt Đậu Xanh). Its combination is really simple but will create a spectacular in your mouth when eating. In hot days, even I am at home or hang out with friends; I usually cook or order this dessert for myself. It is really fresh and amazing. Have you ever thought that you guys can combine grinded mung bean, cendol, water chestnut in tapioca pearl, basil seeds, coconut milk, sugar syrup together before?

Bring to cook in small heat with a little tapioca starch until it become thick. Finally, turn off the heat and add more vanilla starch.
Step 5: Soak mung bean until it is soft. Bring to steam and grind well.

Finally, your dessert is basically finished. Add cendol into glass; add more grinded mung bean, sugar syrup and coconut milk. Mix well and add grinded ice before eating.
