How to: Make your very own Bean-curd

HEY GUYS. This is my first ever How to video! And it is going to be..

Disclaimer : I am not saying that it taste exactly like laoban's, my photos are not that HD this time round sooooo sorry and my instructions may not be that professional! 


time: around 30 minutes or less
no. of serving: around 4


'Unisoy' Soya Bean Milk Powder
 'Polleney' Soya Bean Milk Powder
 'Nestle' 'Coffeemate' coffee creamer
 instant jelly powder
vanilla essence
strawberry flavoring ( optional )

apologies. i stored my unisoy and coffee mate  in a container and couldn't find any better quality picture of it.



Step 1 : Measure and prepare

60g of unisoy

30g of coffee mate 

30g of Polleney Powder

700ml of water

15g of instant jelly powder

Step 2: Pour water into the saucepan and heat it in medium temperature (do not make it boil. if not the mixtures that you are going to add in later will not dissolve)

Step 3: Pour in Unisoy powder

Step 4: Quickly mix it

Step 5: Pour in the Coffeemate, Polleney and add sugar for extra taste. Stir it well.

Step 6: Add in 1 tsp of Vanilla Essence

Step 7: After pouring in everything, heat the saucepan using very high heat and add in the instant jelly powder, stirring it for approx 2-3 minutes before turning off the fire. ( it is a must for the fire to be on high and do watch and stir the mixture)

Step 8: Sieve the mixture around 3-4 times for it to run smoothly. 

(Optional) add a little strawberry emulco for flavoring and you will have strawberry bean curd!

Step 9: Allow them to cool for awhile before putting into the fridge

Step 10: the best part... SERVE! 

Things to note: 
 Please do not replace the "Instant Jelly Powder" with Agaragar or other powders as it will harden. You can purchase it at any Phoon Huat stall ( there's one in clementi ! ) As for the other ingredients you can purchase it at NTUC! 

Do not add too much instant jelly powder if not it will be harder than how it supposed to be. Also, do not put too little if not it will not harden at all and it will just be a thick liquid. ( That's the hard part )

Do try out this recipe and i hope you guys like it! Ohnomnom.
