Fun Kot/Arrowroot Carrot Soup ~ 粉葛猪尾骨胡萝卜汤

In this hot, humid weather and more so during this 'lock down' period, it's good to have your meals with a refreshing and light soup.  Here, I'm sharing with you a Fun Kot/Arrowroot Carrot Soup with some pig tail bones.  Arrowroot is a type of root vegetable which is free from gluten, low in calories and high in protein.  I shared another Fun Kot soup in my blog, long time ago and you can check it 'here' if you want a variation.

I made this on a cool, windy, day and was praying that the batter will rest and proof with bubbles after 2  hours and thankfully it did.  I was very pleased when the cake looked good after I opened the lid of my steamer and the taste was superb, not overly sweet and the texture, nice, soft and moist.  I kept the remaining pieces of 'ko' in a container, at room temperature and they stayed nice and moist even on the third day, maybe because the weather was cool and not
