I was in the mood for some jelly and red bean jelly to be exact. The only jelly powder I had in my pantry was Konnyaku jelly powder, so Konnyaku jelly it was. I bought some mooncake jelly molds when I was in Malaysia last year so I thought this would be the perfect time to use it or open ceremony with it like we Chinese said. I do love this molds, making the jelly looking ultra cute. I wanted to make a red bean jelly because I had a canned of red bean and making a red bean jelly was much easier than making a red bean kuih even though both tasted great. Also I got to use my new jelly molds. :)
Here's my easy, refreshing and delicious red bean jelly recipe. No pre-cooking of red bean required. ;)
- One packet of Redman Konnyaku jelly powder (10gm)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 750ml water
- 200ml whole milk (you can use skim or 2%)
- One 475g (16.75oz) canned whole red bean (shelled) for dessert topping
1. In a bowl, mix (A) together and whisk to combine. Set aside.
2. In a medium pot, add 750ml water to boil. When boiling, add in (A). Whisk until sugar dissolved. Add milk and red bean, whisk to blend well.
3. Pour into jelly molds of your choice. Let it cool at room temperature before transferring it to harden completely in the refrigerator. Roughly 2-3 hours. Serve chilled.
