Lately I have heard some rumors saying our soya beancurd is classify as "low class" food and not allowed to be bring to the Diner en Blanc held at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. How sad!
Well, whatever it is, I am proud to be a Singaporean, I like singlish, and I definitely loves all the local delights from hawker centre and coffee shop. Call it cheap, call it low class, who cares?
Any type of food can be very "atas", depending how you present it, don't you agree? Topped it with some red beans or longan and it can look so different.
And hey, I make soymilk pudding using ORGANIC soy beans! I grind my own beans, make my own soy milk and then into a pudding! Any fresher you'll have to grow your own beans!
Recipe: Homemade Soymilk Pudding

The Soymilk Pudding is very different from the Chilled Soya Beancurd Pudding I had made previously. The Chilled Soya Beancurd Pudding tasted more like our local famous Lao Ban using instant soy milk powder and coffee creamer. It is richer, creamier and require you to cook over a pot of hot water that is not suppose to boil. On the other hand, this recipe is much softer, less creamy and lighter is taste but healthier.
Both recipe are very different in taste and texture. If you do not have a soymilk maker, try doing the instant way.
