I've tried both recipes but I found that the recipe from Dapur Tanpa Sempadan aka known as Mat Gebu is easier & faster to make.

Origin : Mat Gebu


1/4 cup cornstarch*
1/3 cup icing sugar*(*combine together & sift)
21g halal gelatine
1/3 cup water
2/3 cup fine sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup/glucose syrup
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon strawberry emulco (or whichever flavour that you prefer)


1. Brush a bit of oil on the base & sides of the tin measuring 8" x 8" x 3".

2. Sprinkle the sifted cornstarch & icing sugar evenly.

3. Pour out the excess sifted cornstarch & icing sugar.

4. Put it aside for later use.

5. Combine gelatine with water.

6. Leave it aside for 5 minutes.

7. Add fine sugar & boil on a slow fire.

8. Mix it till the gelatine has dissolved completely.

9. Pour the gelatine mixture into a mixing bowl together with the corn syrup, strawberry emulco and a pinch of salt.

10. Blend using the mixer on high speed for 15 minutes.

11. Transfer to the prepared tin and spread evenly.

12. Let it harden for about 2 hours but don't put in the fridge!

13. Cut with a wet knife and cut to whatever shapes that you prefer.

14. Dust the cut marshmallow with the balance sifted cornstarch & icing sugar.

15. Keep it in a container.

Origin :


120g confectioners' sugar for dusting
400g white sugar
15ml light corn syrup
295ml water, divided
25g unflavored gelatine
2 egg whites
5 ml vanilla extract


1. Dust a 9" x 9" square dish generously with confectioners' sugar.

2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stir together white sugar, corn syrup and 3/4 cup water.

3. Heat to 121 to 129 degrees C or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a rigid ball.

4. While syrup is heating, place remaining water in a metal bowl and sprinkle gelatine over the surface.

5. Place bowl over simmering water until gelatine has dissolved completely.

6. Keep in a warm place until syrup has come to temperature.

7. Remove syrup from heat and whisk gelatin mixture into hot syrup.

8. Set aside.

9. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites to soft peaks.

10. Continue to beat, pouring syrup mixture into egg whites in a thin stream, until the egg whites are very stiff.

11. Stir in vanilla.

12. Spread evenly in the prepared pan and let it rest for 8 hours or overnight before cutting.
