Got fan

Gotfan is a traditional pudding-like hot soup within Chinese cuisine. It is a considered a more traditional and home-style dish in Hong Kong and China, since it is never served at any restaurants.


The soup recipe is simple as it only requires the boiling of water and powder extracted from plant roots. Sugar is added for sweetness. The thickness varies depending on the ratio of water and powder. More powder and less water equals more thickness.


It is mostly considered a healthy snack. Sometimes it is used to cleanse digestive system due to its purity.


Different plants offer different powder. The soup ends up looking clear, white or even light green. In all cases, it is served hot.
