I love baking but I always have things left behind from previous baking projects and wouldn’t know how to use the leftovers and they usually just expire and I have to chuck them away. This summer, I plan to use up all the leftovers and find recipes that used them up!
The first project is green tea/ matcha rice pudding. This is a Hong Kong/Chinese traditional snack. The most traditional flavour is actually brown sugar but don’t we all love matcha?!
Rice flour is the main ingredient of this dessert/snack and since I had to use up the leftover rice flour from a long time ago, I chose to make this! It actually wasn’t that hard to make. If you want to know more, you can check out this link I used. (Just realised its in chinese:p if you are interested, I can translate it for you!) I mixed some cooked red beans in the batter as well, same as those traditional ones.
Rice pudding in the making~~ After steaming it for around 3 mins, I added some red beans on top to decorate it. The green colour was much more intense as it steams.
…and its done!!! They turned out pretty good, better than I expected! The ones sold in the streets are usually served with two wooden sticks but since I don’t have those, I used two toothpicks instead! They taste super matcha-y and quite chewy, like mochi! As I’m a huge fan of chewy textures, I love this snack!!
If you would like to try something new, I highly recommend you cooking this!
