Lychee pudding is a delicious after dinner treat. It is easy to make yet exotic with flavor,taste and texture. Lychee is a summer fruit and is now in season. I picked a bag of lychee from the Asian market. I love to snack on this fruit. I tried this pudding recipe from the book Everyday Chinese Cooking by Leeann Chin. Try this, you will surely love it.
Lychees- 1 1/2 cup
White Grape juice or coconut water- 1/2 cup
Lemon juice- 1 tbs
Unflavored gelatin- 1 tbs
(or you can use agar agar powder)
Sour cream- 1/2 cup
Whole milk- 1/3 cup
Few drops of rum essence or rum- 1 tbs
Take half of grape juice or coconut water in a bowl and sprinkle gelatin and mix well. Let it stand for one minute. Meanwhile heat the rest of the grape juice. Add the gelatin and stir till it is dissolved and well combined.
Make a fine puree of lychee, lemon juice and sugar.
Transfer into a bowl and mix in sour cream, milk, gelatin mixture and rum. Pour into dessert bowl.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill for four to five hours for the pudding to set. Garnish with lychee,sliced strawberry or berries.
Hope you will all enjoy!
