My family is a big fan of konnyaku jelly. Therefore I made some konnyaku jelly with moocake mould. To make them attractive I played with multicolours. This method was inspired by Happy Flour. Do visit her blog for more colourful jelly mooncake.
Recipe from the konnyaku jelly powder packet instructions
Ingredients: yield about 4 pcs big mooncake and 12 pcs mini mooncake
10g konnyaku jelly powder
500ml lychee syrup
500ml lychee syrup
Some food colouring
(B) FillingSome canned lychee
1. Put the konnyaku jelly powder and sugar in a bowl. Mix till well combined. Set aside.
2. Bring the water to boil. Scoop some of the hot water into jelly powder mixture from step (1). Still until most of the konnyaku jelly powder dissolve.
3. Pour the step (2) mixture back into the remain hot water. Stir and bring to boil. Cook until all the sugar and konnyaku jelly powder dissolve.
4. Add in lychee syrup and bring to boil again.
5. Remove from heat and leave aside.
1. Scoop some pastry into a bowl and add in a drop of food colouring of your choice (You may use more than one colour). Leave the balance plain
2. Fill the mould with 1 to 2tsp of coloured pastry. Leave aside to set.
* If you are using more than one colour, make sure the 1st colour is set before the next colour. I keep in fridge to fasten the setting process.
3. Once the coloured pastry set, gently spoon the plain pastry over until 1/4 full. Let it half set then place the canned lychee onto the mould.
4. Fill up the mould with the plain pastry. Leave them to set and chill in the fridge.
5. Loosen the side of the agar-agar, invert and gentle press the jelly out of the mould.
* For mini mooncake I just fill them with canned lychee follow by plain pastry. Create pattern by running a coloured toothpick (after dip into food colouring) around the mould.
