traditional ice cream potong

Remember the recent recipe of Red Azuki Bean Popsicle I made? And the story behind the traditional Ice Cream Potong which I adored eating and grew up with? I am so happy to find this long lost traditional “Ice Cream Potong” again just in my local township. I was attending a local community function, celebrating an early mid-autumn festival, to my surprise to find this man with his motorcycle selling Ice Cream Potong by the roadside.

I was overjoyed and thought that I should take some photos to show & tell. So…. here are the steps on how the popsicle is served the traditional way.

Hubby and I each ordered one and we both chose red azuki bean flavor.

Cut ice cream block

The “uncle” took out a block of ice cream wrapped with plastic from the insulated tank. Cut it into a few pieces of rectangular shaped Ice Cream Potong (by the way, “potong” means cut in Malay).

He inserted the wooden skewer into the rectangular-shaped popsicle. He told us that his fingers were crooked due to every day’s “ice poking” and not many people can stand the pain. {Think}… it is like poking a skewer into the stone-hard popsicle, maybe just a little softer than an ice cube.

Peel off the plastic wrapper and serve before it melts in the warm weather here.

The yellow color popsicle is a sweet corn flavor. Equally tasty and most importantly, it brings back the nostalgic taste of my childhood.

The red azuki bean and my half finish Ice Cream Potong. As sweet as my old-time memory, but, I still think that my red azuki bean popsicle recipe has a creamier taste and has more beans in it. Try out the recipe and tell me if you think the same.

The price for each is only RM1.00 each (about US$0.36), and you should know the reason why……
