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!

White Bihoon/Rice vermicelli ~ 白米粉

I was introduced to White Bihoon on my recent trip to Singapore and must admit that I have never heard of this before.  Back here, we have Hokkien fried bihoon which is brownish in colour or Cantonese braised bihoon which is bihoon deep fried and coated with an eggy sauce of meat, seafood and vegetables.  I was curious and I had my first taste of this popular White Bihoon at Jewel, Changi airport.  It's white, because no light or dark soya sauce was added to the bihoon, hence it's white.  It does tastes good with a light squeeze of calamansi. So, today I'm trying to replicate this dish and here's my version of White Bihoon.  Enjoy!
