    Blend the soya beans with water. Pour the soya milk into a cheesecloth and squeeze out the soya milk ( also did that for couple of times) into a large pot. Before putting the soya milk on boil, i actually strained the soya milk again to ensure it's totally grainless. Boil the soya milk ( make sure it's totally boiled.).
  • Tau Foo Fah :
    In a small cup, mix ingredients B. Pour the boiling soy milk in a gushing motion at 2 ft above the pot with GDL mixture.Give the mixture a quick stir and cover it with a cloth before putting the lid on. Leave for 30 minutes. Scoop away the layer of bubbles on top of the soy milk custard and now ready to serve.
