Ginkgo Barley with Bean Curd Sheet Recipe

I love drinking sweet desserts. Apart from my favourite red bean with black glutinous rice dessert, my another all-time favourite is my mom’s Ginkgo Barley with Bean Curd Sheet. I’ve never boiled this myself because I’m just too lazy to shell and remove the ginkgo core. Here’s how my mom makes it:

Bean Curd Sheet / Fu Chok. Make sure it’s the thin type specially made for desserts.

Snow Fungus. Soaked and break into smaller pieces.

Method:

1) Bring a pot of water and barley to a boil.
2) Add ginkgo and snow fungus.
3) Add bean curd sheet and continue boiling.
4) Add rock sugar.

Boiling this ginkgo barley drink with pandan leaves and letting it steep for a while give this dessert an incredible fragrant.

Health benefits:

Dried beancurd helps to lower cholesterol. Barley’s dietary fibre gives your intestinal health a boost. Ginkgo improves memory, concentration, and other mental faculties. Snow fungus demonstrates antitumor activity, lowers levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad”) cholesterol, protects the liver, and fights inflammation, and that it may slow the ageing process.
