Here is a warning to all Matcha lovers. This ‘Matcha Jelly’ is quite addictive and your matcha consumption might increase significantly. That’s happened to me. The jelly is sweetened but I really recommend to enjoy it with White Chocolate Sauce, which is easy to make (*see below for the recipe), OR Condensed Milk or Vanilla Ice-cream are also nice.
Matcha Powder 2 teaspoons
Sugar 2 tablespoons
Boiling Water 400ml
Gelatine Powder 2 teaspoons
Water 2 tablespoons
The basic ratio of gelatine powder to liquid is 2g to 100ml. Most common gelatine powder weighs 4g per teaspoonful. So, for 1 tea-cup of matcha tea (200ml), you need 1 teaspoon of gelatine.
- Sprinkle Gelatine Powder evenly over 2 tablespoons of Water in a small bowl. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes.
- Place Matcha Powder and Sugar in a bowl and mix well. Add half of Boiling Water and stir to dissolve well.
- Add Gelatine mixture and mix well. Add the rest of the Boiling Water and stir.
- Pour the jelly mixture into serving glasses. Skim off any surface bubbles if you wish. When they are cool enough, place in the fridge and leave to set. *Important: You need to stir occasionally while the jelly is thickening to make Matcha Powder set evenly.
- Serve with White Chocolate Sauce, Condensed Milk or Vanilla Ice-cream.
- *White Chocolate Sauce: Place roughly same amount of White Chocolate & Cream in a heat-proof bowl and heat in the Microwave for a minute or less until White Chocolate melts. Then Mix well. I whipped the mixture for the above photo.
