I am happy...

I love this really nice dessert in a Japanese restaurant but has since been closed down. So I won't have any chance to savour it anymore. On the side, I have tried replicating it during my Christmas dinner but still wasn't quite satisfied with the result. So, based on memory, and with the success of my almond jelly. I think I am getting close to the "real" thing. Here is my Green Tea Milk Jelly. Photobucket What you need 13g Agar Agar Powder (flower brand) 200 gm sugar 1000 ml water 200 ml evaporated milk (carnation brand) 1 tbsp green tea powder (macha) Method Mixed sugar with agar agar powder until will mixed Add water to the mixture. Bring to boil under high fire. Add green tea powder. Stir until sugar dissolve, strain through the finest filter you can find and then put it aside to cool down. Once it slightly cool, add in evaporated milk. Then sieve it again, put them into prepared tray to cool. Once set, chill it in the fridge.

  4. hello, out of curiosity, i was wondering why you need to sieve the mixture. doesn't the macha powder dissolve completely? and there are no lumps in the evaporated milk...

  5. Mine doesn't dissolve completely, i don't know whether this is quality problem or not. But to be on the safe side, I sieved them thru.

  7. I left it overnight to chill. Should be able to set as mine was firm enough to pick it up with a fork. Perhaps you can try again.

  11. HI Edith

    i just tried out this recipe. didn't know the green tea powder is supposed to dissolve. mine didn't dissolve completely and when i seived, there were quite a bit of powder left in the sieve. quite sim tia because this powder doesn't come cheap:( the taste is good but mine is rather hard. from your photo, it looks wobbly..is it supposed to be hard or wobbly...

  12. Octopusmum, I feel your sentiment when a recipe didn't turn out the way you wanted.

    For me, I stir till the green tea dissolved and then I sieve it. Mine too have a layer of green tea on the sieve but it is the dust. I am ok with it because it is already been infused into the solution. As long as the taste is profound in the jelly, I don't think you lost anything.

    Mine was in between hard and soft. If you prefer a softer version, I have one that I had done not too long ago.

    Sorry this recipe disappoint you.

  13. HI Edith

    oops, sorry for giving u the impression that i am not happy with the result. on the contrary, i think the jelly is nice. it is refreshing and sth different from the ordinary agar agar. just that i am not sure about the actual texture and not sure whether i have gotten it right. actually u are right about the tea being infused into the jelly. mine does have the green tea taste. if it is not too much of a trouble, would appreciate it if you can send me the other recipe: octopusmum@yahoo.com.sg thks much

    For a moment, I thought you failed on this recipe.

    Let me know whether the second one is to your liking.

    Good luck.
