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!

Lotus Walnut Mooncakes (2021) ~ 莲蓉核桃月饼

  Mooncakes are on sale again as the Mid-autumn Mooncake festival is not too far away.   As we are going through a rather tough time because of the Covid 19 pandemic, many mooncakes can be bought online saving the hassle of going out and having to endure long queues with appropriate social distancing at popular venues selling mooncakes.   I managed to get some lotus paste and here I'm sharing with you my post of this simple Lotus Walnut Mooncakes.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.   Recipe for Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake Ingredients (Dough) 150 gm superfine flour, sifted 90 ml golden syrup 38 ml vegetable oil 2 ml alkaline water Egg wash - 1 whole egg + 1 tsp water, mix well and strain. Method Mix syrup, oil and alkaline water thoroughly with a handwhisk. Sift in flour, mix well with spatula and let rest for 2 hours or more, till it doesn't stick to the hands.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
