Soy Milk Pudding (Tau Foo Fah)

by - April 10, 2019

Tau Foo Fah is one of my favourite desserts.  But, I haven't tried to make it earlier because the traditional recipe requires gypsum powder.  Recently, a lot of people have been sharing recipes that use gelatine instead. I wanted to try it and I found the texture very close to the smooth tau foo fah that is store bought but I think this version is healthier.  I don't feel any worry eating it now.
