  12. Thank you, this looks absolutely sumptuous! How much konnyaku and malic acid? sorry, unfamiliar with using these so don't want to experiment too much, no instinctual 'feel' for it. Hhave used agar agar before. Also when recipes say 'a packet', it's a bit vague, because the internet is a world wide resource, with many products available in different locations- better to use measurable quantities. ( a very American trait, I think they forget there are other nations and peoples in the world) But thank you I can't wait to try. (also thanks for anonymous option, I guard my internet privacy somewhat zealously)

    1. When we buy the Konnyaku jelly powder, it comes in a packet. Then follow the instructions at the back of the packet. You can hop over to this post to check out how the packet looks like. Hope this helps and thanks for dropping by my blog.

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!
