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  'Justonecookbook.com',  reduced the sugar, tweaked it but doubled the recipe. It was well received by members of the family and the pudding were finished in a jiffy!

  • 2 Tbsp matcha/green tea powder
  • 10 gm gelatine powder
  • 4 Tbsp hot water
  • 2.1/2 cups milk

Method
  1. Sift the matcha powder into a bowl.
  2. Put the gelatine powder into a bowl and pour in the hot water to mix.
  3. 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.

  5. Add in the sugar mixture and whisk till dissolved.
  6. Take 6 Tbsp of milk mixture from (step 5 above) and add into the green tea mixture.  Whisk till no lumps and the mixture is nicely blended and smooth.

  8. Finally, add the gelatine mixture into the green tea mixture and whisk till smooth.
  9. Pour into serving cups and chill in the fridge for a few hours to let the pudding set.
  10. Garnish with fresh fruits of your choice or whipped cream before serving.  Serve chilled.
  11. Yield 6 cups (depending on the size of your cups)

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.
