Oriental Fusion Taste
I’m a big fan of coconut milk and use it on a daily basis. I mix it up with a protein shake plus Chia seeds after my gym work out as this combination really gives me a feeling of fullness. A few months ago, I started adding some new oriental recipes to my menu and Thai food has become one of my favourites. I now cook Thai curry regularly, but I can never finish a can of coconut milk when I cook Thai savoury dishes…and so the leftover automatically goes into my protein shake the following day…
One day, while I was working out at the gym, a new idea came to mind “Why don’t I mix coconut milk with DRIED KONYAKU and Chia seeds?” My first attempt at making this was better than expected. The unique smell-free DRIED KONYAKU really went well with the coconut and chia as a sweet dessert dish. After several experiments, I ended up with this combination: DRIED KONYAKU with coconut milk, almond milk, brown sugar and Chia seeds. Oh, and don’t forget to sprinkle soya powder on the top - its roasted flavour makes a big difference!
1Prepare the DRIED KONYAKU as instructed on the packet and drain well
2Put Coconut milk, Almond milk and sugar into a saucepan and bring to the boil and turn off the heat
3Add Chia seeds and DRIED KONYAKU to the saucepan and leave until the DRIED KONYAKU soaks the flavours, at least about 5 minutes and if possible, overnight
4Make the topping: mix Soya powder and Sugar in a small bowl
5Serve onto 2 plates and sprinkle with the topping. Enjoy!
