Milk Tofu Stars ( Toa Huay Pon La Mie )

tofu-stars.jpg

This dessert may look like tofu, but is a gelatin dessert made from soya milk. It's unsweetened, and is usually eaten with fruit in syrup as a plain contrast to the sweet fruit. Today I will be making several dishes with tofu & fake tofu.

Ingredients
1 Packet of Plain Gelatin (Sufficient for 500ml liquid)
400 ml Soya Milk
40 gms Chopped Apple
40 gms Chopped Orange
40 gms Tinned Cherries in Syrup
Jelly Mould

Preparation
1. Put the soya milk into a saucepan, together with the gelatin. Notice that we are using less liquid than is normally used for a jelly (jello) dessert, for this dish we need a firmer jelly.
2. Heat gently to dissolve the gelatin, don't let it boil, and keep stirring.
3. Pour into a mould and leave in the fridge to set overnight.
4. Turn it out onto a plate and slice. I like to cut out star shapes when I serve this dish.
5. Mix the fruit with together with the syrup from the cherries and pour over the tofu stars (This syrup, will give the dish its sweetness).
