Longan Pudding/Jelly, and the new winner of my 1st giveaway for "other countries"

Longan Pudding/Jelly


I made this Longan Pudding 2 days ago as the weather here was so hot and hazy, about 2 weeks no rain at my place. I need something to cool me down...



















You know what, after i made this jelly, my place started to rain, hahaha....

Longan Pudding/Jelly


The original recipe is using soy milk, but soy milk was run out stock and i was lazy to go out to get some, I replaced evaporated milk with soy milk. I like the texture of this pudding, not too soft and not too firm. But my kids and hubby still prefer the soymilk pudding with palm sugar syrup and minced ginger that i prepared earlier.

Barefeet In The Kitchen said...

This looks lovely! I already looked it up and I can substitute tapioca for the agar agar flour. However, I am not having luck finding a sub for the longan. The only thing mentioned online is canned pineapple. Do you think it would taste remotely the same? Or is the longan fruit the real base of this recipe? It just looks so interesting!

Little Corner of Mine said...

Very refreshing pudding/jelly!

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Barefeet in the kitchen, I think should be alright to replace canned pineapple instead of Longan, or you can replace with Lychee also good. But usually here we prefer Longan and lychee for this kind of pudding . And I feel tapioca can not replace with agar agar powder, they are two difference ingredients. Why not search it in your nearby Asian grocery store.

Amelia's De-ssert said...

Oh yes, the agar-agar sure looks delicious and refreshing! Especially with the longan!:D

Lovely dessert for the weather, what's more with the visiting haze. Just wondering, there is lemon juice in the list of ingredients but no mention of it in the method, so wonderinh when do we put in the lemon juice - just before serving is it? Thanks!

HK Choo said...

Attempted this smooth dessert...and like you said, it really did bring in more rain, hahah.. Thank you very much!

Hi, I'm gen. May I ask your recipe is for how many cups of pudding/ Planning to do about 30 cups for my son's birthday in 2 weeks. Is it as soft as the packet type of ready-made pudding (instant) mix we buy?
Thanks!
