Lotus Paste Mangoes Agar-agar Mooncake 莲蓉芒果菜燕月饼

This year I'm coming back with some exciting yummy chilling mooncakes which going to rock the coming festival ! Its been years since I started another batch of jelly mooncakes. Hope you guys will love it too !

The other day, hubby said I am a blogging addict. Well, I guess I have to disagreed with him. You see, as a mother of two I've already spent my whole life in taking care of my children & my other half. I have no extra time for myself, but blogging has built me a tiny little path to meet the outside world. Its also a little something to keep me moving on and started telling myself  "You're not alone !"

So, here's what I did.
Ingredients :
280gm   lotus paste, divide into 35gm each

Note :  wrap lotus paste with plastic sheet then press it with a round mini size mooncake mould to shape it. Unwrapped paste and set aside.

Ingredient for lotus paste fillings :
250ml  water
100ml  evaporated milk
2-1/2 TB  sugar
3 tspn  agar-agar powder
3 pandanus leaves, rinsed
8 muffin cups

Ingredients for mangoes : (for 4 pieces)
400ml  water
80gm  sugar
2-1//2 tspn  agar-agar powder
1/2 cup  mangoes, finely chopped
3 pandanus leaves, rinsed

Method :
(1) put together all ingredients for fillings and bring it to boil till everything totally dissolved. Discharged pandan leaves.
(2) pour one tablespoon agar-agar mixture to each muffin cups and let it set (for about 3 minutes).
(3) then place lotus paste to the center of the cup and top each with the remaining agar-agar mixture till the paste is well covered. Set aside to cool till set.
(4) now,  put together all ingredients for mangoes layer except mangoes chunk and bring it to boil till everything totally dissolved.
(5) discharged pandan leaves and stir in mangoes chunk till everything well combined.
(6)  next, place about 1-1/2 TB mangoes hot mixture to each mooncake mould and let to set (for about 3 minutes).
(7)  when ready, place lotus paste to the center of the mould and fill each with the remaining mangoes mixture till the filling is well covered.
(8) keep the agar-agar mooncakes refrigerated till set.
(9) finally, unmould the agar-agar mooncakes and serve cold.

This lotus filling turns out looking very thin but actually it is not. You can still clearly seen the layering after cutting it.

I am on cloud 9 ! Looks how gorgeous the jelly mooncake turns out.

And the lotus paste filling turns perfect as well. Absolutely a beauty !  Enjoy & have fun everyone.

Totally agree with you Kristy, while blogging can take up some of your time, its a great way to clear your mind and get inspired. I tried to get off blogging merely due to guilt thinking I was putting my kids second and blogging first but it still draws me back in LOL. love the beautiful mooncakes.
