Matcha Konnyaku Jelly

I was trying to finish up my expiring matcha and made this.  Another no-brainer recipe :P

DH doesn't like the "hard" and chewy texture of Konnyaku Jelly but if I add in more water, he will eat them ;-)

Matcha Konnyaku Jelly
1 packet Konnyaku Jelly Powder (10g)
3/4 cup Sugar
950ml Water

1 tbsp Matcha/green tea powder
100ml Warm Water
* mix together

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve matcha in warm water.
  2. In another bowl, mix konnyaku powder and caster sugar together.
  3. In a medium pot, bring water to boil. Pour the konnyaku mixture into water gradually and stir till sugar dissolved.
  4. Turn off flame and keep stirring for about 5 mins, till the bubbles dissipates and the mixture becomes clear.
  5. When the mixture is slightly cooled, sieve in matcha mixture and stir well.
  6. Pour the Konnyaku solution into the moulds.
  7. Leave to cool and chill in fridge before serving.

Matcha is one of my misses..
I can never love anything matcha related.

But I drink ocha. Weird. Maybe it doesn't taste and smell as green.

I have never tasted matcha jelly before. Does it taste good?

I've observed that you don't bake/cook with matcha ;-) Another observation is, you don't bake bread.

If you like matcha, I suppose you'll like them in jellies too.

Very creative, matcha jelly...but I don't have matcha powder at home, coz my in-laws only drink Tie-kuan-yin. Maybe I'll try teas of other flavours, thanks for the idea!
