  • Sugar
  • Flavouring of your choice

Melt the sugar: In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and corn syrup over low heat. Stir continuously until the sugar dissolves completely and the mixture starts to bubble.

Color it up: Once the sugar has fully dissolved, add a few drops of your chosen food coloring to the mixture. Stir well to ensure the color is evenly distributed.

Add flavors: Add the grated ginger and your chosen flavor to the saucepan. Mix these ingredients into the sugar mixture thoroughly.

The lime twist: Squeeze in the lime juice. The acidity will not only add a subtle tang but also help prevent the sugar from recrystallizing.

Cooling time: Pour the mixture onto the greased baking sheet. Spread it out into a thin layer, and let it cool.

Pulling time: While it’s still warm, bring the mixture together and pull it apart till the color becomes light. You can now cut it into shapes.

Let it set: Allow the Alewa to cool and set completely. Once set, you can break it into pieces if you spread it out on a sheet.

Enjoy!: Your homemade, colorful Alewa is ready to be enjoyed. Store any leftovers in an airtight container to keep them fresh.

This Alewa recipe not only brings a classic treat into the modern kitchen but also adds a playful twist with the use of food coloring.

It’s a perfect way to share a piece of tradition with friends and family, all while adding your personal touch to the flavors and colors.
