Longan & Soya Bean Jelly

I made about 25 cups of dessert for our Alumni’s Pot-luck makan-makan over the weekend.


2 litres water
250gm sugar
1 packet of Swallow jelly powder
1 can of evaporate milk
1 can of soya milk (using the evaporate milk can as measurement)
1 can of longan in syrup


  1. Mix one packet of Swallow jelly powder and sugar into cooking pot.
  2. Pour 2 litres of water into the mixture and boil over low heat. Oh don’t forget to add pandan leaves for the fragrant.
  3. Stir occasionally till mixture dissolve and boiled. Turn heat off.
  4. Empty 1 can of evaporate milk and 1 can of soya milk into solution.
  5. Mix well and pour mixture into cups. Cool them in refigerator if you want to shorten the waiting time.
  6. Once the jelly has set, scoop longan over jellies and distribute the syrup evenly. You may find some jellies has only one longan. lol.

Don’t worry if you added too much or too little water. This dessert is meant to eat from the spoon. I love mine very very soft. Almost like taufoo fah.

Excuse the camwhore. We had so much fun during the makan-makan and our dear photographer keep on tempting me with his SLR. Gosh!

    Hi there, I would like to know whether is it possible for me to substitute 2L of the water with 500ml of soya bean. Meaning, I’ll be using 1.5L water 0.5L soya bean milk the (1 can evaporated milk measurement) soya bean milk
    What will happen a?
    I’m just afraid the recipe you gave here is not soya bean-y enough
    Also, can I use those sweetened soya bean like the one used in this picture:


    I craved for this a lot and my mum used to make real good soya bean jell when I was in Malaysia

    Thanks a lot

    The Queen says: Yes, you can adjust the measurement anyway you like. As long the total liquid comes to 2 liter. If you are using the sweetened or packet soya milk, you may want to reduce the sugar unless you like them real sweet. Happy cooking 😉
