Bici Bici

(Bici Bici - Adana)

<br />Bici Bici
500 ml water
1/2 cup sugar
4 tbsp corn starch + 1/4 cup water
1/2 cup rose syrup, cherry syrup, etc.
Blend enough ice to make snow
Icing sugar

Place the water and sugar in a medium-size cooking pot. Melt the sugar at medium heat. Dissolve the corn starch in 1/4 cup water and add into the pot. Stir constantly for about 4-5 minutes to get it thick. If you like you can add a little bit of rose water in it.

Pour the mixture into a shallow dish. The mixture's depth should not be more than 1 cm. Let it cool for an hour. Cover the top and place it in the fridge. Then, cut in small cubes.

Place the cubes in a serving bowl. Place some snow on it. Pour some rose syrup and sprinkle some icing sugar all over the top. Serve immediately.

We ate this in Antakya with our kids last year. It was a bright fluorescent pink! I am not sure what they used to make it that color.
But your recipe looks delicious!
