Wobbly Soy Beancurd (No Gypsum Powder Used)

Soy products? 
My favourite!
Just started to love them about 3 years ago...
when my healthier diet started...
My past diet was extremely high in meat content
and I will pick out any vegetables on my plate.
Plus, my rice will be piled up like a mountain.
Imagine how bad is that? Really harmed my health..
When I realised that there's something wrong with me,
I started to make a change.
Things got a lot better, but now after all the indulgence,
it started to deteriorate again!
So I got to start to be health conscious once again and keep it as a habit!
Keep my fingers crossed =p

And so here's my Wobbly Soy Beancurd...
I made it with Kanten...
so it's really healthier..
For normal beancurd, they use gypsum powder to let the curd set.
With Kanten, it's all natural and 0 in calorie!
Oops..seems like I'm always promoting Kanten..
I have no commission for doing that =)
just wanna share good stuffs with my readers and friends...

Look at the beancurd!
I hope you can see that it's really soft and wobbly...
After sending into my mouth, it just kind of melts on it's own...

  1. Homemade soy beancurd is the best. Since i can easily get the homemade fresh soy beancurd, i dont think i will try this at home, too lazy, hehehe..

  2. nowadays you don't really get a good combination of healthy yet delicious food. but yours is an exception, it looks mouthwatering yet full of nutrients and low in calories!

  3. wow, this looks really good, you are making me hungry!!! :)

  4. Hi Sonia =) Yeah actually it's easier to get it outside, but they use gysum powder ..HEHE..that's my only concern..

    HEy Jean!! Thank you so much for the compliment..You are so nice =) and i love ur blog too..

    Hi Jweightloss..HEHE i think it's a really good snack for we women...low in calorie and nutritious..thank u!!!!

  5. this is fantastic! just wondering can i use the same amount of GDL in place of Kanten? can't get Kanten in OZ.

  6. what is kanten? where to buy in singapore?

  7. Hi Phoebe! Sorry for the late reply...
    You can substitute kanten with 1 tsp gelatine...
    Sprinkle gelatine over 1 tbsp of water. Put it aside to swell for 5 minutes. Bring soy milk in a pot to small boil and turn the heat off then pour in the gelatine paste, scrapping everything in. Whisk to combine for about 1 minute. (remember to remove those excess bubbles from the whisking, pour into cups and let it cool down, then set in the fridge) can get kanten from Mediya supermarket at Liang Court. You can read more here =)

    1. thanks. i have replace it with 1/4 tsp of agar agar powder and added 4 drops of almond essence to it. its turns out very nice. thank you so much for your recipe.

  8. so using Kanten powder must set it cool? So no hot tau huay after all. BTW gypsum Gypsum is between 23 and 29 percent calcium. Adults should consume 1,000 to 1,200 milligrams per day of calcium to help keep their bones and teeth healthy and their blood vessels functioning properly. Getting plenty of calcium and vitamin D in your diet can help limit your risk for osteoporosis and premenstrual syndrome. Other sources of calcium include dairy products, sardines, green leafy vegetables and beans.
