Fruity Yoghurt Jelly (Neen Neen Yau Yee) 年年有余

Fruity Yoghurt Jelly (Neen Neen Yau Yee) 年年有余


Recipe source :  Adapted from Amy Beh ( The Star Newspapers )

This fruity yoghurt jelly is made into the shape of a beautiful koi fish. The ingredients consist of three different types of fruits, namely strawberry (red), orange juice (orange) and kiwi fruit (green)  to form the beautiful hues of the koi fish. 

This is a great dessert after a hearty and sumptuous reunion dinner. "Neen Neen Yau Yee",  the auspicious sounding name in Chinese signifies so much prosperity and over-abundance of food, wealth and all good tidings, so much so that, there is a spill-over to the coming year!

I am sure everyone of us wants an over abundance of good tidings all year round!

  3. Actually the eyes of the fish were covered by a layer of jelly making the fish looked like as if it had cataracts but I got them removed and they looked so black and lifelike.
