Peanut Butter Soup


I used to buy this peanut butter soup from the selller on a motorbike at the market but as time goes by, it's getting difficult to find this kind of soup being sold at the market, if at all. Therefore I set about searching for the recipe to make this soup and finally my son found the recipe from an old issue of Flavors magazine. We decided to try it out this weekend and was rewarded with delicious goodness!

The texture is so creamy and smooth!


The recipe is actually quite simple with only a few ingredients...

You need:

100g of creamy peanut butter
250ml water
30g brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon of rice flour dissolved in 2 tablespoon of water

Direction:

Put all ingredients in a sauce pan except the rice flour and on LOW fire, keep on stirring until you get a smooth mixture, then slowly drizzle in the rice flour solution until mixture thickens. I didn't use all the solution.

Enjoy...but too much though, this is very fattening!


I had also made this refreshing fruits/chicken salad again for lunch today...


and for dessert, this delicious Japanese Cotton Cheesecake some bloggers were raving about of recent...


Very pleased with the result as compared to the last time I baked this cake:D

  4. All three dishes look delicious! Yes, I have seen a few people making Japanese Cotton Cheesecake but have not tried it myself. I do enjoy peanut cream and made it just two weeks back with Shanghai pancakes :)

  5. That creamy soup would warm my chilly-spring-soul. The fruits and chicken make me think spring should be here soon and your cotton cheesecake is a slice of heaven. Wishing I was in Maylsia - specifically in your kitchen.

  9. I could eat this pb soup for dessert!

  10. @lena...yes this is fa sang wu, not easy to get these days and even if available, it's usually full of starch

    @Brittany...yes very rich, hence the warning not to over eat!

    @Kim...there is in fact some similarity between the cakes, just imagine chiffon cake with creamcheese added...the method is similar.

  27. Peanut soup is my favourite! I tried making once by grinding my own peanuts, so much work! Using PB is so much easier!

  29. I haven't had this for a long time except at wedding dinners when it's served as a dessert. It can be very filling, so best to eat in moderation!
