Embrace the gula
If you’re new in Singapore you got to try out its unique, yet local desserts, they will blow your socks off. One of the most popular ones is the Gula Melaka Soft Jelly, it is eaten all across Singapore and has become a staple.
So how’s it made?
It is quite simple and only requires a few ingredients. If you love jelly then you have to try this. So it is made out of agar agar powder, water, coconut milk, palm sugar, egg whites (optional), and pandan leaves. You have to combine the agar agar powder, palm sugar, water, and the pandan leaves and bring it to a boil. Then sieve the mixture and add in the coconut milk and then let it simmer for about a minute and or so and refrigerate. Then you can cut it up and eat.
Where can you get?
If you want to buy Gula Melaka Soft Jelly in Singapore the only place is at Sinpops’s. It is apparently a timeless dessert and hasn’t been in the making for a long time, and here at Sinpopo’s they’ve decided to bring it back. Here they serve it with coconut sauce and is made with egg white for a more fully taste.
How much does it cost?
