Nothing is more refreshening and soothing than agar-agar (jelly) in the hot summer day.
This is a simple agar-agar.
1 packet of agar-agar ( you can buy it from the asian store)
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 pandan leave (screwpine leave)
1 can of coconut milk ( I use Cocoa King brand)
a pinch of salt.
Wash the agar-agar. My agar-agar has yellow coloring which I don't mind since I am mixing the agar-agar with brown sugar.
In a big pot, on high heat, add agar-agar and water until the water just cover the agar-agar. Add brown sugar, sugar, and pandan leave. Boil until all the agar-agar disolve. Lastly, add the coconut milk. Mix it well. Reduce the heat to medium. Before it bubble, turn off the heat. Use a fine strainer and pour the agar-agar into a square container 5 by 9 inches at least. Popped all the bubble at the surface. Let it cool on the counter. Then keep the agar-agar in the fridge before cutting.
The agar-agar in the picture above, I cut it using a metal serated knife designed as agar-agar cutter.
