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.

Hainanese Chicken Rice

This Hainanese Chicken Rice is super delicious. The whole chicken is submerged in boiling water, cook briefly, and then sit in the water with the heat switch-off. This technique produces a succulent and tasty chicken. To complete the meal, serve with steamed rice cooked with the Hainanese chicken rice paste, some cucumber and tomato slices. Some good accompaniments for the chicken rice are ginger and garlic paste, fresh chili sauce, dark caramel soy sauce, aromatic soy sauce, blanched bean sprouts, and tofu soup.

Es Teler (Shaved Ice With Fruits)

Here is my version of Es Teler, a popular shaved ice dessert with fruits in Indonesia. The main ingredients are avocado, jackfruit, young coconut meat, shaved or crushed ice, grass jelly, and tin palm seeds. The dessert is sweetened with sweet coconut sauce, and condensed milk. I don't take the latter, so I have omitted it, and replace with palm sugar syrup, which is often used in many Malaysian and South East Asian desserts.
