White Fungus, Pear and Matt Chor Dessert for Prevention of Flu and Respiratory Related Illness


The combination of white fungus, pear and matt chor (preserved Chinese Dates) is very good for our respiratory system. With the current Swine Flu (H1N1) and Influenza A epidemic at it’s peak, it is advisable that we take good care of our respiratory system to reduce the chances of infection. This nice dessert drink will moist our throat and hence help to trap impurities before it reach the inner part of our body. This is also a cooling drink for the body. I have added in longan in this recipe to make it taste better, but actually it is not advisable to add longan because it can be very heaty!

Ingredients
Matt Chor, 10 pcs
Pear, 1 fruit, cored and cut into small slices (can also use yellow Chinese Ya Pear or Green Pear)
White fungus, 4 pcs, soak in water until soft
Dried Longan (optional, can be heaty), ½ cup
Water 5 rice bowls
Rock Sugar to taste (please note that
Matt Chor is already very sweet)

Boil all the ingredients for around 1 hour. Let it cool down. Chill the dessert in the fridge and serve.

For once i thought it's Matt(hew) Chor. Aiyo... that's honeyed dates la.
Indeed this drink is good for the respiratory tract - it lubricates the throat especially.
Peter, i've added Papaya in this drinks as well. It taste just as good.

I heard about people turning to herbal concoctions to ward off or at least curtail the current flu situation.

I had some herbal drink last night at my parents which is supposed to help prevent the swine flu.

Wow this recipe needs 10 蜜枣 ? I normally use just 1 piece for my soup or dessert because it is so sweet , I'll usually add rock sugar to my dessert if not sweet enough. 10 pcs 蜜枣 to 5 rice bowls water...omg... must be very sweet...lol...btw what kind of 蜜枣 do you used ?

Pete said...

A Full timed Housefly : I normally buy the big white colour hu pioh. No fishy smell and less oily, but they are hard to find!
