  • Take water chestnuts, about 10-15 pieces.
  • Slice each chestnut into half, making two round disks.
  • Make two cuts into the two disks to make 6 equally sized pieces.
  • Set chestnut pieces into a bowl and drop the red food coloring and a teaspoon of water and mix well.
  • Drain the chestnuts of any juice.
  • Put tapioca flour in a big bowl.
  • Drop the chestnuts in and shake the bowl around to coat the chestnuts with flour.
  • Scoop the chestnuts into a strainer to get rid of the excess flour.
  • Put it into another bowl.Spray some water on the chestnuts with a misting spritzer. Put them back in the flour bowl. Coat them with flour again.
  • Boil a pot of water. When boiling, dump the coated water chestnuts inches The cooked "rubies" will float, scoop them up in a strainer and dump them in ice water.
  • In a small cup add sugar and water to make syrup. Microwave the cup for 3-4 minutes depending on your microwave.
  • Divide the rubies into equal amounts and set in two bowls.
  • Pour out water from the bowls.
  • Add half of the coconut milk and half of the syrup to make one serving.
  • Serve with crushed ice in the summer time.
