-1 package agar agar powder (25g)
-7 cups water
-2 cups sugar (or to taste)
*Mix together agar agar with water and let rest for ½ hour. Then bring mixture to a boil and add sugar, stir until dissolve. Add coloring and fill into moulds.
*I like my jelly to have a crunchy texture so I use 7 cups water, for softer jelly use 8-9 cups water.
**To add flavor, take out some water and replace with whatever flavor liquid you want. For example for pandan flavor take out 1 cup of water and replace it with 1 cup of pandan juice. What I usually do is boil agar agar with 5 cups of water, add sugar and then divide the mixture in half. Then I’ll add 1 cup of coconut milk in one half and pandan in the other half. The pour layers and you’ll get layered pandan and coconut jelly.
***If you have a “picture mould” like the one in the picture than always add coconut milk or milk into the jelly used to make the designs, or else the jelly will be transparent and the colors will show trough each other.
****Add a little cream of tartar or lemon/lime juice to help keep the colors from bleeding.
-Sounds complicated but it’s actually very easy and fun.
