    Panna Cotta

    ‘Panna cotta’ is an Italian dessert of sweetened Cream set with Gelatin, and it is usually moulded. Cream only Panna Cotta is too rich and heavy for me. That’s why I always mix Milk and Cream. You can make ‘Milk Jelly’ by using Milk only. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 500ml (2 cups) of Milk & …

    Agar Orange Jelly

    I recently discovered a product called Queen’s ‘Jel-it-in Vegetarian Gelling Powder’ at a Woolworths store. It’s an Agar-base gelling powder and it is easy to use. Sometimes I prefer to use Agar or Kanten rather than Gelatine. For this orange juice jelly, definitely Agar is the best option. And Queen’s ‘Jel-it-in’ dissolves very well. I …

    Wine Kanten Jelly

    Kanten is similar to Agar Agar but its texture is different. The advantage of using Kanten (or Agar) as gelling agent is that it can set liquid with the fruit such as fresh Pineapple, Kiwi Fruit or Mango. Those fruits break down the protein found in gelatine and prevent the jelly from setting. This doesn’t …

    Carrot Bavarois with Orange Sauce

    When I started feeding my son with solid food, I made great efforts to introduce him a variety of veggies. He ended up hating veggies. Them I started inventing food that is hiding veggies so that he would eat hidden veggies without knowing it. This ‘Carrot Jelly’ is one of them but my son didn’t …

    Black Sesame Panna Cotta

    ‘Black Sesame Milk Jelly’ is a popular dessert in Japan. I make it using my Panna Cotta recipe and adding Black Sesame Seeds Paste to it. If you don’t want to use cream, use just milk.

    Matcha Bavarois

    ‘Bavarois’ is a creamy jelly dessert. When Matcha is mixed with milk, cream, white chocolate or sweetened condensed milk, the Matcha flavour becomes so mellow with its distinctive bitterness. I finally started liking Matcha after having hated it for many years. This ‘Matcha Bavarois’ is not too sweet, so it would be nice to be …

    One of my favourite summer desserts is ‘Coffee Jelly’ which is very popular in Japan. It was quite hot yesterday and I had a craving for it. It is very easy to make. You just need ‘good strong coffee’ and ‘gelatine’. I recommend to make your coffer stronger than usual for the jelly. Icy cold …

    Milk Fruit Kanten

    I scarcely remember the time when I was in my third year of primary school, but I clearly remember a boxed lunch that my mother made for me on a school excursion day. My lunch impressed all teachers and their praises made me so happy. The most outstanding food in the lunch box was this …
