I'm back for a while for an update. Had been a very busy 2014 for me so far.
With the school reopening for the new term, both kids are in the morning session. I get to do some exercise after sending them to school. No weight
I visited her in the mornings while the kids were in school then rush back to prepare lunch as well as dinner; in between picking the kids up for after school classes. It didn't help that my husband was away on business trip. So please don't come telling me, life is easy as a SAHM. Trying being a daughter, mother, wife and maid (and sometimes father too) all at the same time.
Anyway, my mother has been discharged for more than 2 weeks. Life is pretty much back to normal. But I have grown too lazy to blog. :P Hopefully I will wake up my lazy bones and resume updating soon. I will probably do back-dated posts first. You can check out my Instagram to find out what I 'busy' with.
Meanwhile, here's a sweet treat for you for staying with me. ^_^ Have a good weekend!
- 2 Mangoes, 1 1/2 puree and 1/2 diced
- 250ml Mango Juice (I'm using Peel Fresh)
- 2 tablespoon Gelatin Powder
- 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoon Sugar
- 100ml Water
- 50g Sago
- Evaporated Milk to serve
How to do it:
- Rinse sago and drain.
- Add sago to about a litre of water.
- Bring it to a gentle simmer.
- Reduce heat and continue cooking.
- Stir frequently to prevent the sago from sticking together.
- If the water gets to starchy, drain it, add in more water and continue cooking till all the sago turns transparent.
- Pour into a sieve and run the sago in water till it's clear from the starchy residue.
- Drain and set aside.
- Meanwhile, sprinkle gelatin powder on the water and set aside for it to bloom/expand.
- Warm 200ml mango juice with sugar (if using) but do not simmer or boil. Just hot enough for the sugar to melt.
- Add in half the mango puree and mix well.
- Add in the gelatin mixture and mix well.
- Pour into cups and chill to set.
- You can add some mango cubes to the mango mixture if you like.
- Mix the remaining puree with the remaining mango juice and set aside to chill.
- If you wish to un-mould the mango jello, just have a bowl of hot water ready.
- Sit the cup of mango jello in the hot water for a while; about 10 secs.
- Turn it over to a serving bowl to let it drop.
- To serve, pour over the additional mango puree, add some sago and some evaporated milk.
- Fill the mango jello mixture to almost the rim of the cup if you wish to served it un-mould in a serving bowl.
- The texture for this is melt in your mouth not the usual pudding texture.
- Replace 100ml Mango Juice with 100ml Whipping Cream for a more milky taste to the jello.
