Pukat Thok, A Mashed Avocado Drink from Sigli



Hi friends! Do you love avocado? I love avocado – we’re avocado over avocado! And today, I’m sharing perhaps the unique way to serve up some traditional drink from Aceh, in a cold Pokat Thok.

Anyhow, this drink is maybe the most amazing drink I have ever had. Every sip I took I was yelling to my friend “this is so good!” So of course you’re going to want to try it.

Pokat Thok is traditional Aceh’s drink that is quite rare in the capital city. But, the way to make a traditional drink Aceh is quite unique.

Pokat thok seller, Imam cut an avocado hanging from his stall.

Mostly, start with the perfect avocado.  For the most intense avocado flavor, he recommends a avocado at room temperature that is maroon or maroon with brown spots.

Then he peeled the avocado and put in a glass. He picks up the avocado and hold it in both hands, with the cut you made in the middle. Twist the two halves in opposite directions, and they'll pop apart with the pit staying lodged in one of them.

He scoops out all of the meat with your spoon and drop it into a mixing glass. By his advice, you can loosen it up first by cutting a crisscross pattern in the meat with a knife, then scooping it out along the scored lines.

The avocado peeled and cut into bite-size chunks for quick blending and consistent texture.

Then he put the rice, sugar, and coconut milk pie. Next put milk and stir it slowly. The last process adds rice chips and serves to its customers.

Blend until chunky, use fresh ice. Pour and enjoy immediately. Once flavored avocado and once pounded rice on the tongue.

When I drunk there is a sense of rice tinkering, so the straw is pressed to bring the avocado feels more. Mr. Imam a day and overnight sells up to 20 avocado comb in Sigli city.

The price of one glass of avocado thok sold Rp 10 thousand rupiah.
