Sea coconut with snow fungus sweet soup


This cooling and refreshing dessert soup is what we need to cool down our system in this current hot, humid, hazy weather........'Sea coconut with snow fungus sweet soup'.  This 'tong sui' or 'leong sui' is easy to prepare and also tastes fabulous both taken warm or chilled.


Sea coconut with the skin.  Skin removed revealing the white flesh which is then sliced thinly.  Preserved honey dates and dried longan in the centre.  On the left is dried snow fungus and next to it is softened snow fungus, stemmed and trimmed to small pieces.





A refreshing dessert for both the old and young .......... superb when taken chilled in this ridiculous heat!

Ingredients
  • 800 gm fresh sea coconut, remove skin and slice thinly
  • 10 preserved honey dates (mut choe)
  • 20 gm dried snow fungus, soak to soften, stemmed and trimmed to small pieces
  • 3 litre water
  • 30 gm dried longan, rinsed
  • 80 gm rock sugar
Method
Bring water and honey dates to a boil, about 15 mins.  Add in the sea coconut, rock sugar and white snow fungus.  Simmer on medium heat for about 1 hr.  Add in the longan, continue to simmer for another 15 mins.
Fine tune to desired sweetness, turn off heat and leave to cool.  Can be served warm or chilled.


Tip :  For easy removal of the sea coconut skin, freeze them, then the skin can be readily peeled off.

    I think you can find these in your hometown and hopefully by that time the haze would have been blown over and weather more tolerable!

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

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.
