Soymilk Jelly ~ 'Malaysian Monday no. 9'





Made this dessert to cool off in this cranky weather of hot, humid afternoons and evening showers ....... Soymilk Jelly with Rambutans stuffed with Pineapples!
The Rambutan, Nephelium lappaceum is  a fruit native to Malaysia and other South East Asian countries.
The word 'Rambutan' is derived from the Malay word 'Rambut' which means 'hair' and this refers to the spiky hair that covers the fruit.  These hairs are soft and harmless to touch.  The exterior of the Rambutan can be orange, deep red or even yellow in colour.  The whitish, juicy, sweet fruit can be released from the rind upon twisting it until it pops out.  There's a large seed in the middle and this must be discarded as it's poisonous.  Without the soft hairs on the rind, the rambutan resembles the lychee, which is in the same botanical family.  Read more about the Rambutan and other tropical fruits from this   'site'




Rambutans are not in season right now, so have to compromise with canned ones.  Picked one stuffed with pineapple for extra flavour.  I couldn't get fresh ones for the pictures, so please bear with me and make do with the picture on the can.



The rambutans are at the base of the ramekin and  I added some on top just before serving.



Mmmmm ..... so delicious once chilled!  Come, let me share this with you ..........  the recipe, I mean!

Ingredients
  • 1000 ml unsweetened Yeo's soymilk
  • 6 oz sugar
  • 10 gm or 4 tsp agar2 powder
  • 3 screwpine/pandan leaves
  • Canned  rambutan with pineapple - cut and drained off syrup or other fruits of your choice
Method
  1. Boil on low fire the soymilk, sugar and pandan leaves.  Keep stirring till sugar has dissolved.
  2. Remove the pandan leaves and add in the agar2 powder, keep stirring.
  3. Turn off heat.
  4. Scoop onto ramekins or jelly moulds and add in the cut fruits.
  5. Cool before chilling in fridge.
  6. Serve only after they have set.
Variation
  1. You can use the syrup from the canned fruits, use 500 ml syrup and 500 ml water or more syrup and less water, as long as there's 1000 ml of liquid.  Test for sweetness and adjust accordingly.

  1. I love this dessert too, and rambutans is one of my favourite local fruits but it's considered "heaty" so I tried to restraint myself.

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
