So I made the red ruby dessert as promised, (aside from the hot weather, my mom was craving for it) and it turned out delicious and refreshing. Except that I had to use instant coconut milk (which was frozen) and as it defrosted, the fat solids separated from the liquid so you get unsightly solidified coconut fat dotting the surface. It doesn’t affect the taste though, just that it doesn’t look as pretty! Next time it’ll be fresh coconut milk fer sure.
Did a slight change on original recipe. Instead of immersing the chopped chestnut in tapioca flour and boiling them to make the ‘ruby’, I left the chestnuts as is, and made red tapioca jelly separately to accompany the dessert. It makes for interesting texture -crunchy chestnuts and chewy jelly in cold sweet coconut milk. Great for hot weathers!
p/s does anyone know if I can upload pictures in succession instead of in an embedded slide like the above? Or does it come with the theme?
also, have answered all Games of Thrones related replies in the comment box of the previous post. Yes you all have to watch it! The fantasy nerd in you demands it!
