Secret recipe revealed: Lao Ban Tau Huay

Each plastic bag contains 5 bowls of soya beancurd from Lao Ban at Old Airport Road. A group of us trooped there for lunch and each of us bought at least 2 bags. Each.

Anyway, the good news: A colleague just shared that the secret recipe to make this dessert-of-the-moment is not so secret anymore. Check it out:

Apparently, the instant jelly powder from Phoon Huat is sold out because the whole world is now trying to make their own tau huay. Might try making it one day since it seems really easy!

And just so you know, I spent $21 on tau huay today. Gulp. Sadly, they’re no longer as smooth. Perhaps the rush to mass produce them has resulted in a less than stellar product. Pity.

  1. I have tried twice yesterday because in demand. Definitely taste the same. Actually i put slightly less sugar.

    1. You really think it the same?
      But still it seems lack of something..
      I realized there is a sweet nice fragrance aftertaste from Lao ban’s.
      Should there be some specific fragrace ingredient been missing to make it complete?
      Wonder anyone able to get the secret out.:)

  3. It seems like many are interested in the recipe. The boy has tried it and have been making it for a while now. I’d try and get him to write a guest post on the actual recipe/process soon!
