Bici Bici is a local desert, served on the street as not many still make this at home. It is nice and refreshing on a hot day. It is a basic firm pudding squares in a rose flavored syrup.
200gr of Corn or wheat starch
red food colouring
1tbsp rose water
shaved ice about 1 litre
1 litre of basic sugar syrup
Put the corn starch into a saucepan and slowly add in water over high heat. Add enough water so that the starch becomes a pudding consistency. Pour into a shallow baking dish. Cool and put in the fridge. When cold cut into small cubes. Put into serving dishes.
Make the sugar syrup and cool. Add in the food colouring and rose water.
Add the shaved ice to the cubes. Then pour over the red sugar syrup. Enjoy.
If you make this with the corn starch it will gluten free.
