1. Boil all the ingredients together until agar agar dissovles. Blend if necessary.
2. Pour into molds and leave to set in the fridge.
3. Serve chilled
Comments: This recipe is actually Aunty Yochana's. (Hmmm..but i can't find the recipe on her blog anymore..)
I made a few modifications to it...hers had three layers, chocolate, pandan and blueberry!! I didn't have any coconut milk...so i increased the quantity of cream cheese and water. It came out pretty nice and i was surprised at how easy it is to use agar agar powder...it's the vegetarian substitute for gelatin and smells so much better and has a slightly firmer texture..agar agar is made from seaweed and the name 'agar agar' means 'jelly' in Malay...
will try making almond jelly next time...which is essentially agar agar powder with sugar, milk and almond essence.. :)
Oh and this recipe is not very sweet..so taste after boiling and decide if you wanna add more sugar...
