(Chinese recipes, prepare authentic Chinese food now!)
Believe it or not, I have just unpacked my luggage–the suitcase of my not-so–recent Malaysiantrip. As I was going through the stuff in my baggage, I realized that I did a bad bad thing.
I smuggled brought back a lot of food products from Malaysia, all of them deep buried in the suitcase. Some of them stinky (think belacan and salted fish), some of them are scarce and expensive in the US, and some are so fragile I wrapped them with blankets of papers and tapes…
One of the items I brought back is dried longan (龙眼). While dried longan is not too hard to find in the United States, buying them in Malaysia is a lot cheaper. I love them in my tong sui/dessert (糖水)–the delicate essence of dried longan is always so light yet invigorating…
I usually make my longan dessert with snow fungus, red dates, and ginkgo nuts. The most blissful thing about this is that I can serve it either warm or cold (with ice added).
It’s perfect anytime of the day as a thirst quencher or an after meal dessert.
Try this and it may just become your new favorite…
