Agar-agar Kering Rainbow (Dried Rainbow jelly)
1 packet of 50g agar-agar
1 packet of 400 grams rock sugar (gula batu)
1 cup powdered sugar
A dash of rose water
2 pandan leaves
8 cups water
Red, Green, and yellow food coloring
Soak agar-agar in water for few minutes. Toss dry. In a pot, boil agar-agar, water, powdered sugar, rock sugar and pandan leaves. Dash a bit of rose water. Strain agar-agar in 4 bawla and each bowl dash 4 drops of food coloring. The last bowl just leave it as it is. Let it cool at room temperature until it hardened. Using zig zag knife, cut the agar-agar(jelly) into 1 inch strip.
To make rainbow agar-agar, mix all the hard and cut agar-agar to heat in microwave at 350F degree for 10 minutes. Let it cool again. Then cut it into 1 inch strip. Let it caramelize. I am using the oven at "warm" temperature for about 20 minute. Let it air dry for several days.
