Tau Huay (Soya Milk) Jelly Mooncakes 豆奶仙草菜燕月饼

108 comments

Tau Huay/Tau Fu Fah or Soya bean curd pudding is a popular Asian dessert. It's a very versatile dessert that can be served hot or cold, sweet or savory.  I remember when I was a little girl, my grandma loved to buy Tau Fu Fah home without adding sweet syrup but drizzled with some 'soke yau' (pork lard), light soya sauce on the Tau Fu Fah with finely cut spring onion. My family enjoyed this Tau Fu Fah very much as it was very delicious to mix with hot rice.  For today's post, I did not use pork lard (maybe next time... hehee) but bought Nutri Soy soya milk to make Tau Huay Jelly Mooncakes with grass jelly as filling. This is a quick and easy recipe with few ingredients that I'm sure anyone of you can make this at home and enjoy this 'Tau Huay' as much as I do.

Does this look like Snowskin Mooncake with  black tau sar?


Tau Huay (Soya Milk) Jelly Mooncakes

    Ingredients - makes 12
      Grass Jelly Filling
      250g Water
      3 1/2 tbsp Sugar
      1 tsp Agar agar powder
      2 Pandan leaves
      100g Grass Jelly - (unsweetened or sweetened), cut to strips 

     
    
      Tau Huay (Soya Milk) Jelly
      500g Nutri Soy Soya Milk (reduced sugar)
      125g Fresh milk
      45g Sugar
      2 tsp Agar agar powder







      Methods:
  • For making grass jelly filling - use a round plastic cup that is smaller than the jelly mould. (see picture)
  • Boil water, sugar, agar agar powder and pandan leaves together in a pot at medium heat.
  • Keep stirring mixture with a hand whisk until liquid boiled. Discard pandan leaves and off heat. Add grass jelly strips into it, stir well with a spoon for another minute.
  • Pour grass jelly liquid into 12 plastic cups evenly and leave to set in fridge for about 15 minutes. 
  • For Tau Huay (Soya Milk) Jelly - mix all ingredients in a pot, bring to boil at medium heat.
  • Keep stirring during the process so that it will not be burnt. Off heat and stir for another minutes. 
  • Pour some soya milk liquid into moulds till half full. Gently scratch set grass jelly filling with a sharp knife. This will make the agar agar jellies stick together.
  • Place one piece of grass jelly filling in each mould, then fill up the mould with soya milk.
  • Cool and chill jelly mooncakes to set in the refrigerator

豆奶仙草菜燕月饼

     材料
     250克 清水
     3.5汤匙 糖
     1茶匙 菜燕粉
     2叶 香兰叶
     100克 仙草,切条状 (未加糖或有糖粉的也可以,随个各人喜欢)

     豆奶外皮
     500克 低糖豆奶
     125克 鲜奶
     45克 糖
     2茶匙 菜燕粉

     仙草内馅的做法:
  • 用小过菜燕月饼模子的圆形朔料杯子(请看图)。
  • 用中火,糖,菜燕粉和香兰叶煮开。
  • 不停搅拌至滚,然后关火,拿掉香兰叶。加入仙草条,继续搅拌1分钟。
  • 将煮好的仙草条液分别倒进6个朔料杯子至半满,放进冰箱冷藏15分钟。
     豆奶外皮做法:

  • 待稍冷后,收入冰箱凝固即可享用。

    2. Dear Ann,
      I wonder whether can buy the sweetened grass jelly, cut out & use as filling? :-)

      Delete
    3. Dear Ann, I made it during weekend with shortcut whereby just use the grass jelly directly after cutting... My skill is no good, the filling sinks to bottom so it doens't look nice. However, the combination of soya and grass jelly is just perfect! We all love it, thank you very much for this superb recipe :)

      Delete
    4. Kah Chin, Sorry that I've not read your previous comment. So you used the sweetened grass jelly. I'm sure its taste better if you've have a sweet tooth. I think mix the grass jelly and soya milk together also look pretty.

  35. Hi Ann,

    Great idea!
    Can I ask one thing?
    How do you ensure that the grass jelly filling ends up in the middle part of the mooncake?
    I would imagine that the set grass jelly filling would either float or sink in the soya milk liquid.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Tim & Phong Hong,

      When you add the first half liquid to all the moulds, by the time when you come back to the first one the liquid is almost semi set. If you find the grass jelly filling sinks to the bottom you can use a fork to lift it up a little. You have to work this quickly because the soya milk and grass jelling filling will not stick together if the soya milk liquid is already cool down.

      Delete
  36. I definitely prefer this to the traditional mooncakes. It is so refreshing. I also have the same question as Tim.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh my it's that time of year already? I just love your mooncakes and can't get over how you can come up with so many different kind. I was thrilled when i made them once! These look so good. I have some grass jelly, just haven't done anything with it yet!

  38. This is just a gorgeous treat! I've never worked with some of these ingredients but I'm guessing they're all available near me (we have a lot of international markets in the area). I look forward to giving it a try!

    1. Hi Jen, I think soya milk and grass jelly are available in most markets. But you can also change other filling like fresh fruits in it.

  42. Hi, may I know how am I suppose to make the grass jelly not visible on the surface as shown in your picture? I tried but failed

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Iorna,

      Actually some of my tauy huay mooncakes are still a little visible on the surface. You can wait until the tau huay semi-set before adding the grass jelly but make sure the remaining tau huay is hot or gently reboil it. Otherwise the grass jelly will not sticks together with the tau huay.

      Delete
  43. Hi, I hv tried your recipe twice but the tau huay dont seems to set, very soft. Any idea? Do I have to add some more agar agar powder?
    Thanks/Janice

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Janice, When boiling agar agar you need to keep stirring the liquid and after switching off the fire, stir for another 1-2 minutes. This method will harden the jelly after chilled.

    2. Hi Ann

      Thanks for the tips! I think I will give it a try again, if not I'm not satisfied.

    3. Hi Ann

      Good news! Succeed after the 5th rounds...thanks for the tips! It helps but I did add 1tsp of agar-agar powder for the skin, it turns out well, not too hard, not too soft.

      Love your recipes!

    1. You mean this agar agar mooncake? Store it in a box and can last for a week as long as your jelly is not too watery. Remember to keep stirring the liquid when boiling.

  52. HI Ann,

    I got stuck on the grass jelly. If we cut it into strips and throw in the boiling water..the strips does not melt off..so we are just taking the water? or plus with the grass jelly strips as well? im confused here...urs look so nice..
