I have tried that before with unsweetenend soyabean milk from the hawker centre, it's not nice and the texture is not there. Or maybe it's just me, why don't you give it a try?

Coxiella, nice texture. Glad that you enjoy it. If you want extra soft dilute the soya milk a little not too much otherwise it will caused seperation.

Kawai, I don't think the ready soya milk can churn out nicely. Some of the store don't use fresh soya bean to grind into milk they use ready made soya bean flour. Which is why some soya milk has got a funny taste.

Sinner, the evaporated milk can be replace with fresh milk or omit it and replace it by soya bean milk. The purpose of adding milk is just for fragant only.

Thanks amelia. I have been eyeing this recipe for some time but did not try it as I do not like evaporated milk :( . But now I will go hunt down some agar agar powder and give this a go and omit the milk Smile

Bernice, if you dissolve the agar agar powder with the 500gm soya milk first then only mix in the rest of the soya milk stir well, then bring to boil, it shouldn't feel sandy.
Did you sieve the extract soya milk twice? I see yours very yellowish, is the soya milk too thick? If it's too thick it'll not be smooth and got the sandy feel as you mention.

Note: Don't pour the agar agar powder to hot soya milk, it'll not dissolve properly.
And if your are using evaporated milk do not let it boil, just stir well will do.

Bernice, dissolved the agar agar powder in uncook soya milk first then only boil so that it'll not be sandy. To get a smooth and soft texture soya milk must not be too thick and too watery will cause seperation.

Hi bernice
