Matcha Pudding ~ 抹茶布丁

This simple yet delectable and soothing Matcha Pudding is a delicious sweet treat to round up a meal.  I adapted the recipe from  '' ,  reduced the sugar, tweaked it but doubled the recipe.

Matcha Pudding  ~  抹茶布丁  Ingredients 2 Tbsp matcha/green tea powder 10 gm gelatine powder 4 Tbsp hot water 2.1/2 cups milk 70 gm mixture of caster and raw sugar Method Sift the matcha powder into a bowl. Put the gelatine powder into a bowl and pour in the hot water to mix. Heat up a cup of water in a saucepan and place the bowl of gelatine on top.  Once the gelatine powder dissolves, remove and set aside.

Pork Misua Soup ~ 面线肉汤。

This is a simple one-pot meal which I serve quite often at home, especially during the hot and dry spell. Something soupy is very welcome in my family.  It's refreshing and not too heavy which can be served for lunch or dinner.

Rinse. In a pot, add about 3 cups of water and once the water is boiling, add in the chicken bones and let cook for about an hour.  Discard the chicken bones. Scoop some seasoned minced meat and cook in the soup.  Break in an egg if desired. In another pot, boil some water and blanch the vegetable, then cook the misua.
