Pear and White Fungus Sweet Soup

The weather is becoming colder and drier. I have been making Chinese soup remedy to balance the dry weather but haven’t been writing recipes. As this is my first Chinese soup recipe, I decided to make a simple one. Chinese make soup with ingredients which serve as remedy for different weather and sickness. For example this recipe is for dry weather which is good for skin and throat and have a moisturising effect. You can find all the ingredients in Chinese supermarkets. Traditionally, we use rock sugar to sweeten the soup. But I have a lot of dark muscovado sugar at home, so I decided to use that instead.

Mango Pudding

I almost forgot I had to make something sweet for Eid. This was prepared in the eleventh hour and took less than 15 minutes to make. I decided to make a mango pudding using the residue mango pulp from yesterday’s mango lassi. I  have also previously made mango pudding from fresh mangoes. All you need to do is to use a blender to blend the mango, extra sugar and add in the gelatine mix. To keep this halal, my friend bought me a very high quality gelatine from New Zealand. Even though you may choose to use mango pulp, I still highly recommend that you add freshly diced mangoes into the mixture to incorporate a different texture. For the best result, chill it overnight but, if like me, you are working to the last minute, it should still work out if you leave it in the fridge for a mere 3 hours.
