Gingko Lotus Seed Dessert
This is one of my favourite oriental dessert and there's nothing better than a bowl of it that's homemade. The ones I have outside are either too sweet or really stingy with the ingredients. This dessert is known to be really good for your skin - the gingko and beancurd skin attributes to that I think. It also contains lotus and barley seeds.
No, I didn't make this myself. My mum made it! She surprises me sometimes. She really dislikes cooking and anything to do with the kitchen but I guess this was fool-proof. I mean what's so difficult about throwing in the ingredients in a big pot and let it cook and simmer? haha, I'm so mean! I should give her some credit ya? So there, I'll say it, this one she made was really nice! :)
Perhaps I should make it myself someday. Anyhow, this dessert is a definite must-try, though I think most people don't really like the gingko (the yellow fruit). I remember having difficulty even swallowing it when I was younger... I didn't like it at all, and preferred having more lotus seeds than gingko. But now, I love it! Besides it's good for my skin!
