Project: Konji Konnyaku (lychee) + VIDEO

EN

Thanks for your kind comments about my crochet cakes and pies on the last post! I’m happy to read it c:

Today I want to share you guys another recipe and dessert: konnyaku! Konnyaku comes from Asia and is actually a great alternative for gelatine and for our vegetarians among us.

The texture of the konnyaku itself is really chewy and different from the gelatine. Yet it has nice flavouring and it’s really fresh! You might have tried this in cubic shape in your bubble tea!

When I was in Hong Kong last year, I’ve bought this instant konnyaku in lychee flavour. Anything in lychee flavour is in my book a plus and I regret for not buying more of it…

Please check out the pictures and the video!

Bedankt voor uw complimentjes op mijn gehaakte cakes en taartjes in de laatste post! Ik heb ze met plezier gelezen c:

Vandaag wil ik jullie een ander recept en dessert delen: konnyaku! Konnyaku komt uit Azië en is eigenlijk een geweldig alternatief voor gelatine en dus voor onze vegetariërs onder ons.

De textuur van het konnyaku zelf is vrij taai maar wel lekker qua smaak en lekker fris. Je zou dit al hebben geprobeerd in je bubble thee!

In Hong Kong vorig jaar, kocht ik deze pakje konnyaku in lychee smaak. Alles in lychee smaak moet ik gewoon kopen en uitproberen en ik heb beetje spijt dat ik niet meer heb gekocht…

Check de foto's en filmpje! c: 
Da Recipe: 1 pack of konnyaku, 500 ml water (2 cups)

 I was deciding whether I was going to make panna cotta or not. 

A little plating and decorating issue here...
What do you think?






Da Steps:
  1. In a sauce pan: add the content of the konnyaku package and the 500 ml water. 
  2. Let it boil, it should take 3 minutes. 
  3. Pour the konnyaku in cute molds. Caution: its hot! 
  4. Let is set in the fridge for at least 4 hours (mine went overnight)
Good luck!
