Are you on the hunt for a simple dessert that is also elegant and adds to your dining table in a way that it impresses your guests? Well, we have the best recipe for you. Try this milk tea jelly.
STEP 1.Start by brewing a strong cup of black tea. You can use tea bags or loose tea leaves based on your preference. Steep the tea for about 5-7 minutes to ensure a robust flavour. Once brewed, strain the tea and let it cool to room temperature.
STEP 2.In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over warm water and let it sit for a few minutes until it blooms. Ensure that the gelatin completely dissolves in the water.
STEP 3.In a saucepan, combine the whole milk, sweetened condensed milk, and sugar. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring continuously until the sugar dissolves. Do not let it boil; you want the mixture to be warm but not scalding.
STEP 4.Pour the cooled black tea into the milk mixture, stirring gently to combine. If desired, add vanilla extract for an extra layer of flavour. Ensure that the combined mixture is well-mixed and smooth.
STEP 5.Gently add the bloomed gelatin mixture to the tea-milk mixture, stirring continuously to incorporate. Make sure there are no lumps, and the gelatin is evenly distributed.
STEP 6.Divide the jelly mixture into individual serving glasses or moulds. Allow some space at the top to accommodate any toppings or garnishes you might want to add later.
STEP 7.Place the glasses in the refrigerator and let the jelly set for at least 4-6 hours or until firm. Overnight chilling is recommended for the best results.
