Grass Jelly Longan 凉粉龙眼

Grass Jelly with Longan

This is again a 'quick' way of making a quite famous dessert, I would say in Singapore. It may look scarey to some, but it's definitely one of my comfort food. I found the powder mix in the Asian store in Malmö recently and was quite happy making it for myself (Johan doesn't like it) for the hot summer - it's perfect! It goes by a few names but here's a more detail description from Wikipedia.

Grass jelly mix
1 can of longan
Ice cubes

  1. Follow the instructions on the package, I only used half this time as it makes a lot.

  2. Chill it in the fridge until set, then you can do two things - make a drink or make a dessert.

  3. If you want to make a drink, just grate is coarsely and add enough sugar syrup with ice cubes.

  4. To make the dessert, cut into large cubes and place in a bowl with as much longan as you want (that's the benefit of making your own dessert) and add some syrup from the longan can and ice cubes.
