Hasma with Lotus Seeds and Red Dates

Hasma also known as Snow Frog Jelly, usually used to cook dessert. Double boiled or cooked with red dates and dried longan, is a refreshing and nourishing dessert. Perfect for our reunion dinner to cleanse the palate after a very heavy dinner. Serve it chill or warm are equally nice.
