Making Pomegranate Seeds
  1. Cut water chestnuts into small cubes about the size of pomegranate seeds. Divide into two portions. Add red food coloring into one portion. Mix until all the chestnut cubes cover with red. Pour panda extract into the remaining portion to make green. Mix until cover.
  2. Place the red chestnut cubes into a plastic bag first. Then pour in tapioca flour. Shake to coat. Using the same bag, same flour for the green one.


  3. Strain the chestnut mixture to remove any excess flour. Place the chestnut mixture into a boiling water. Stir well for a few times to prevent them from sticking. Cook on medium heat for 3 minutes or until all the chestnuts float to the top. Remove from hot water and place into icy water bowl to cool. Then remove from icy water and place into a clean bowl. Repeat with the green one. Add 1 tsp. sugar into the red one and another 1 tsp. sugar into the green one. Mix well.
