If you haven’t had Chinese bean curd dessert, it is not what you think it is. It doesn’t make with tofu that you buy in the supermarket. It is made from soy milk, corn starch, gypsum powder, and water. I would say it is more like a smooth pudding.
Bean curd dessert is using top with palm sugar or sweet ginger syrup. It can be eaten hot or cold. The bean curd is soft. You can get a little hint of soy flavor. It is just a little sweet with the sugar or syrup.Yum… This is just one of those comfort desserts for me. The ginger syrup just warmed me up. Although you can always find bean curd dessert in Chinese supermarkets or restaurants, the quality is usually not the best. A good bean curd dessert should be very smooth and thinly scooped. Bryan and I had a really good one in Hong Kong Lamma Island. That was memorable! But for now, just try one. I hope you will like it.
