Tofu Longan

Unlike the Tofu Fah I've done the other time, this Tofu Longan is infused with longan syrup and sweetened with sugar. But the texture is as good as old-fashioned soybean pudding :) smooth and wobbling!!

To show my support 'Make & Eat Tau Huay Day' a fun event initiated by Alan of Travelling Foodies , I dressed up my humble plain soy pudding with a layer of black sesame paste!

Recipe adapted from Table for 2
Tofu Longan
  • 1 level Tbsp Agar-agar powder (8gm)
  • 1L water
  • 250gm sugar
  • 2 blades pandan leaf, tied into a knot
  • 1L thick unsweetened soy milk (I used Sobe Brand)
  • 150ml evaporated milk
  • 150ml canned longan syrup (from the longan can)
  • Canned longans
  1. Prepare containers / jelly cups. Place 2 longans or more into each container.
  2. Cook sugar, 750ml water and pandan leaf until water boils.
  3. Mix agar-agar powder with 250ml water and pour into (2). Bring to a boil again, simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat.
  4. Put in soy milk, evaporated milk and longan syrup. Mix well.
  5. Pour soy mixture into prepared containers.
  6. Let them cool down and set. Chill in fridge before serving.

This was a batch of Tofu Longan which I did last month for my family gathering which was very well received !! :) My cousins even requested for the recipe! :)

Hello Kitty Soy Pudding anyone?? Flavoured with strawberry paste :)
