Happy Food

Little one was down with a throat infection over the last few days. He was so upset because it had to happen during school holidays! There goes his plans for all the fun and whatever mischief he had up his sleeves :)

His appetite was also poor during that period. He hardly ate. I made this jelly for him in order to get him to eat something easy but nutritious and to cheer him up.

This is really easy but is a very nice, cooling and tasty dessert. Something fun but nutritious as it's main ingredient is soya milk.

It is quite commonly available in dim sum restaurants and even the night markets. They usually make them in small microwavable cups. I used the jelly moulds that were meant for mooncake jelly. I find the size quite right for individual servings albeit a little on the generous side :)

I used fresh unsweetened soya milk that I bought from the wet market. The recipe used is actually courtesy of the soya milk seller plus a little research for confirmation.

(yields 12 pieces plus 3
17*12*5cm microwavable boxes )

Note : This is a very soft jelly (as soft as beancurd) and meant to be eaten with a spoon.
  • 1.5 liter water (with sugar syrup from soya milk seller and some syrup from longan to make up volume)
  • 13g Agar-agar powder
  • 150g castor sugar or to taste
  • 2 pieces of pandan leaves - knotted (optional)
  • 1 liter unsweetened soya bean milk
  • 400ml canned evaporated milk
  • A tin of canned longan
  1. Mix water, agar-agar powder, sugar and pandan leaves (if available) into a pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Add in soya bean milk and evaporated milk and stir. Lower fire and switch off when near boiling stage. Do not allow it to boil.
  3. Put longan into moulds.
  4. Pour jelly mixture.
  5. Cool to set in refrigerator.
