Remember in the previous recipe I mentioned that I wanted to go to Paris someday? That very night, after writing this blog post, I went to bed and dreamt that I was traveling. The funny thing was that I was off to India instead of Paris. Yup, Eiffel didn’t make it to my dream but the TajMahal did. Not really complaining though. I wouldn’t mind savoring dozen of ladoos and rasmalai. If I have to die under a hill, please bury me under a pile of Indian sweets. I can literally see my best friend rolling his eyes at that statement.
Anyways, talking about desserts, today we have a super simple recipe that contains extremely basic ingredients. Soy Milk Jelly is quite nutritious for a dessert as it uses soy milk, which is plant-based milk, and therefore it’s perfect for those who can’t take dairy. I used ready-made soy milk with added sugar so I didn’t have to add extra sugar to sweeten it. If you are going to use sugarless soy milk, you will have to add more sugar. I mean it is a dessert after all but still better than sugar-laden cupcakes, right?
Agar agar will set at room temperature however it sets really quick if you place it in the fridge! Mine took 15 minutes to set. I have paired this soy milk jelly with some longans as it is a popular combination in a lot of Chinese restaurants. In fact, they would add a few drops of almond essence while cooking the jelly but I am not a fan of artificial almond essense, so I omitted that.
This Soy Milk Jelly is refreshing and really easy to bring together. You can make it in 20 minutes (Agar Agar setting time not included). Moreover, it keeps well in the fridge for a few days. Totally a fuss-free dessert. I hope you give it a try!
