Pandan Jelly With Coconut Milk (Pandan Agar-Agar)



This is a recipe for Pandan or Pandanus Jelly With Coconut dessert. The enticing light green color of the jelly is made from the essence of pandan leaves. Again, it’s a very light and refreshing agar agar (meaning jelly in Malay) based dessert. If you like the pandan fragrant, then, I am certain you will enjoy this jelly very much.

Pandan Jelly With Coconut Milk (Pandan Agar-Agar)

Ingredients

500 ml (2 cups) Water
3 tsp Agar-agar Powder
5 to 7 Tbsp Cane Sugar
100 ml Pandan Juice
100 ml Coconut Milk (preferable 100% coconut milk)
A Pinch of Sea Salt

Method

Pandan Juice: Rinse 8 Pandan leaves and, cut into 2 cm lengths. Blend the pandan leaves with 120 ml of water. Strain the pandan juice and discard solids. (You'll only need 100 ml)

In a medium saucepan, combine water, pandan juice, agar-agar powder, sugar, coconut milk, and a pinch of sea salt. Stir until all the agar-agar powder dissolves. Then bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the sugar completely dissolves, about 6 to 8 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat and pour the mixture into a shallow dish, or jelly mould. Set aside to cool completely before chilling in the refrigerator. Cut into your desired sizes and serve chilled.

  6. Which section in T&T can you get Pandan leaves? I've been looking for it for a while now... but I haven't seen it at T&T yet! Are they usually fresh or are they frozen? And which T&T do you go to?

    THanks for answering! :)

  14. I love jelly set with agar agar! The smell of pandan is so nice as well, the flavour and smell is subtle and to me, indescribable. I like the way you cut the jelly too. :)
