Welcome to souped up recipes.
Guangzhou is getting hotter and hotter these
So i am thinking about making a dessert recipe
to spend the summer.
Coconut jelly or pudding
whatever you call it
It is really easy dim sum recipes.
Let’s get right into it.
First we need to soak the gelatin powder into
1/3 cup of cold water for about 5 minutes.
Do not throw it into the hot water
or else it will clump up and will be really
hard to get it dissolved.
While waiting, let’s get the liquid ready.
in this pot, we gonna pour in 200 ml of milk
400 ml of coconut cream
100 ml of whipping cream
Add some sugarI use about 60 grams
Also i like to put a pinch of salt
it won’t taste salty at all
but it does bring out more flavors
The gelatin should look like this after 5
It is hydrated, sticky and became a little
Just dump that in.
It looks like a big piece
but it will disappear quickly when you heat
Now turn the heat to medium
I know some people just add in the gelatin powder directly into the liquid
I don’t do that because there will always be
some small pieces that are not completely dissolved
which will affect the texture
Just a little note that gelatin is made from animal skin
If you are vegetarian, You can try agar-agar
which is made from seaweed
There is an amazon link in the description,
you can check that out!
Now the gelatin is completely dissolved.
And you can see on the side of the pot, it
When it comes to a boil, turn off the heat
Transfer it into a container.
I like to let it go through a fine sieve just in case
there are still some gelatin that is not fully combined
Like I mentioned in the beginning
if your gelatin powder clumps up together
this is a good way to get rid of it
There is extra, so i add some into these small cups.
For variety, I added in some mango and dragon
If you got kids, imagine how happy they will
be when they see these jelly cups=)
Let them cool down a little bit then Cover
Let it sit in the refrigerator over night.
it is the Next day, let’s look at this beautiful mango pudding.
I couldn’t wait, i have to eat it first!
It taste amazing with mango.
One thing you should know, once you take it out of the fridge,
they will start getting soft because the temperature.
So you need to finish them in like 30 minutes.
But trust me, usually they will be gone in 5 minutes.
Ok, once i am done with the mango pudding
We got more work to do now.
By the way, if anyone knows a trick to get
this stuff out easily, let me know.
I just use a sharp knife, separate the egde
flip it over with the cutting board.
Hopefully it will come out in one piece.
Ok, that’s good.
Cut it into the shape you like.
Coat it with finely shredded coconut
you can find the amazon link in the description.
