    Chestnut Agar Jelly

    My favourite Japanese summer dessert called ‘Mizu Yōkan’ is commonly made with smooth Azuki (Red Beans) Paste and Kanten. I often make it using Vegetarian Gelling Powder as Kanten is not easy to find. White Bean Paste and Chestnut Paste can be used instead of Azuki Paste. To make this Chestnut Agar Jelly, I use …

    Corn Starch Milk Jelly

    To make jelly desserts, I use Gelatine Powder. Sometimes I use Agar Agar OR Kanten for vegetarian jellies. Recently I started using Corn Starch.

    Earl Grey Panna Cotta

    My ‘Coffee Panna Cotta with Kahlúa’ has become popular. Then I decided to make Tea Flavoured Panna Cotta. I used the fragrant Earl Grey Tea which I love, and 1/2 Milk and 1/2 Cream for lighter texture. The fragrance of Earl Grey in the Panna Cotta is quite subtle. You need Earl Grey Tea Syrup …

    Carrot & Yoghurt Mousse

    Savoury Carrot Mousse is often served at restaurants, but I much prefer sweet Carrot Mousse. Many people use Carrot for baked sweets but not for cold sweets. Today I added Yoghurt and Whipped Cream to my ‘Carrot Jelly’ and made this Mousse. This Mousse is not very sweet and I added Orange Sauce, but Apricot …

    Jasmine Tea & Lychee Jelly

    It is my daughter who introduced me the delicious drink ‘Lychee Tea’. Today I made it into a jelly dessert. ‘Lychee Tea’ is a sweet drink, but I added extra Sugar for this dessert. This jelly looks slightly milky. The milkiness in tea-based jelly tends to happen due to the reaction between Tea’s tannins and …
