Agar Agar Talam







Ingredients:
1 packet of agar agar strips
some fresh pandan leaves (split and tie into knots)
1 -1/2 cups castor sugar
1 packet of Coconut Cream (200ml)
a pinch of salt
a few drops of green food colouring
2 litre Water (or slightly more)


Method:
Cut agar agar strips into small pieces. Soak in cold water for a while and rinse.
Boil the agar agar strips in a pot of boiling water together with the fresh pandan leaves. Add sugar into the pot and stir gently until the sugar has dissolved.
Pour half the mixture into a baking tin and add a few drops of green food colouring and stir. Let it cool and set for a while.
Add coconut cream, a pinch of salt into the other half of the agar agar mixture and let it come to a boil.
When the first half of the agar agar mixture has set, pour in the other half of the agar agar mixture (coconut), chill in the fridge for a few hours. Serve.
