Us carnivorous beasts probably can’t go a day without consuming any form of meat but as your bones begin to ache more, you tend to realise that it isn’t the healthiest way of living.

One way you can be more healthy is, of course, to reduce your meat intake or…..how bout just simply tricking your mind? Yes, with this Siew Yoke (Roast pork belly) shaped jelly cake, your brain would be convinced you’re having meat when in reality you’re just having dessert.

9. Add one layer of taro and pour a thin of fat batter to cover and make it firm.

10. A bit more taro and fat layer batter to make it more attractive. Press the taro a little to get rid of air bubbles.

11. Cover with a cloth and steam for six minutes

12. To make the first fat layer, pour in 100g of fat batter, cover with a cloth and steam for eight minutes.


13. Repeat the process until the third meat and third fat layer.

14. Each layer MUST be covered in a cloth and steamed before moving on to the next one.


15. After a while, the skin layer will look like below


16. Add the batter on top of the cake and make sure it’s not too thick or thin. Then, steam it for ten minutes

17. Cool the cake down in ice water for five minutes.


18. Let the cake rest without a cover and keep your hands to yourself for the next eight hours.

19. Use a spatula to move out the cake and cut it with a plastic-wrapped knife to avoid the cake sticking to the knife.

20. Cut the cake into small “pork belly” pieces and voila!
