OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding

While we were doing some grocery shopping, the hubby decided to try out the OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding. We saw this during the previous shopping, but was considering whether to try. So we decided to try this time. OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding is selling at $5.50 from NTUC Fairprice.

On the packaging, this big pack of OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding states that it consists 5 servings. And in my mind, I was thinking instant mash potato style. 5 small packs of soya beancurd pudding powder to mix with hot water, stir and it will be hardened.

But I was wrong. The big pack contains one big pack of soya beancurd powder and 5 oven safe disposable bowls. Ahh. I have to make all 5 at one go. And the powder needs to be boiled. Hmm.. Cham.. How to finish them?

No choice then. To eat, we have to make all of them together. Here are the steps provided.
  1. Dissolve a packet of OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding Powder into a pot of 1000ml water. Stir well until boil.
  2. Pour mixture into containers provided and set in room temperature until cool.
  3. Chill in refrigerator for 1-2 hours until firm. Serve chill. Makes 5 servings.

So, I dissolved the powder into a pot of 1000ml water. Mine is not really a pot, but any pot works. And I have to keep stirring.

Initially, the powder was a little clumpy when mixed into the hot water. But with consistent stirring for sometime, the clumps were dissolved. Be patient. (I was impatient haha)

Next, was to pour the mixture into containers provided and set in room temperature until cool. Happy with what I did, even though it wasn't much effort here.

After cooling, it's time to chill them in refrigerator for 1-2 hours until the pudding becomes firm. Looks like I'm in some production line making many bowls of OWL Soya Beancurd Pudding eh?

And, TA-dah... the final product after being chilled for three whole hours. It was still pretty watery after two hours. I guess my refrigerator was not cold enough?

Even after chilling for three hours, the pudding is still watery, although much better than the recommended two hours. Sighs.. Let's try overnight chilling. Hopefully it will be better. (To be updated tomorrow)

[Update: 16th May 2014 3:00pm - The pudding is still as watery as last night. Total chilled time: 20 hours. I think if we were to buy and try again, though I doubt I will, I would use 900ml of water instead of 1000ml]

I wonder how long can we keep this in the refrigerator. To be safe, I think we have to finish this in two consecutive days.

Here's someone who wishes to try out the beancurd pudding too...

  1. Hi, you wondering why your beancurd is not a success maybe you have to boil it abit longer. You can keep the pudding in the fridge for 5-7 days.
