Mango Roll 芒果腸粉




Long time no post! As I looked back to my 275 posts throughout the years, mango is one of my favorite subjects--with over 13 different recipes!

Here is my latest and new beloved dessert:


Ingredients:
200ml coconut milk, unsweetened
100 ml whole milk
300 ml water
30g konjac powder 蒟蒻粉
25g sugar
mango


1) Put milk, coconut milk, water, sugar and konjac powder in a pot. Bring it to a boil with stirring.
2) Remove from heat. Pour onto swallow dishes or pans. Let cool to room temp. Refrigerate until set.



3) Add mangos and roll up.



40 Serve cold with mango puree on top.



Note: mango can be substituted with other fruits. For vegan version: use almond or soy milk. Let your creativity reign!

Sago Dumpling with Lotus Seed Filling 蓮蓉西米角



晶瑩剔透,有咬口,蓮蓉餡清甜幼滑,這確實是一款精緻小食、點心。但與其他懷舊小食一般,越來越少有食肆做,要品嘗都是最好自己動手了。






Ingredients to make 24 pieces:
225g tapioca pearls 西米
110g sugar 砂糖
260g lotus seed paste 連蓉
20g vegetable oil 菜油

1) Divide the lotus seed paste into 24 equal portions, about 12g each.



2) Soak the tapioca pearls in water for 2 hours. Drain.
3) Mix the tapioca pearls with sugar and oil. Steam for 2-3 mins.
4) Divide into 24 portions:


5) Take each portion and flatten. Wrap with a lotus seed paste. Steam for 8 mins until it is transparent. Serve in room temp.
