This is Wild Boar's favorite jelly - Egg Drop Palm Sugar Jelly . This jelly is fragrant because of the palm sugar and the subtle eggy fragrant makes it more interesting. The egg drop give the jelly a marble look :) Great dessert to serve when you have friends over for dinner :)
Love the crisp springy texture and the beautiful design of the the egg drop ... so magical :) I make this jelly quite often for the sunday school kids . I am not too sure they like this preparation for there are many pieces still left behind unlike the konnyaku jelly, all vanished in a short while :p Maybe this is more for the adults than kids. But I know the adults love this...the sunday school teachers and the adults attending the bible classes :)
This jelly is easy to make and I added a few pieces of rock sugar for a more springy texture. This jelly is more healthier than those with coconut milk :) though those with coconut milk will taste good too.
