Water Chestnut and Lemon Dessert 马蹄柠檬甜品

This yummy desserts is prepared by my eldest daughter Pearly. My comments are the lemon slices are too thick but the taste is nice.

I have made some amendment on the original recipe.


(Adapted from 100 Chinese Desserts)

250 gm skinned water chestnuts

3 cups water
80gm rock sugar or adjust to taste
1 tbsp cornflour - mixed with 2 tbsps of water 

 1/2 lemon
1 egg slightly beaten (this is extra that I added on)


  1. Diced water chestnuts into small pieces
  2. Cut lemon into 4 thin slices and juice the remaining lemon
  3. Bring water to the boil. Add dices water chestnut and rock sugar
  4. Add water chestnut flour solution and lemon slices.
  5. Mix well and cook for a while.
  6. Pour in the beaten egg, off the fire wait a while  then stir the broth for a smooth texture add in the lemon juice.
  7. Serve.

Make sure not to over cook the beaten egg, once the egg is pour in, off the fire wait a while then stir to create  a smoother broth.   蛋花

Happy Cooking
