g agar-agar strands
400 ml water
400 ml canned coconut milk
150 ml canned coconut cream
150 g sugar
Rose water to flavor
Use a pot of cold water to soak the strands of agar-agar overnight or at least
1-2 hour. Drain and measure to ensure that there should be at 1 1/2 cups
of agar-agar, loosely
packed. Use a saucepan and mix the agar-agar strands with coconut milk and
water and stir constantly while bringing to the boil. Add sugar and keep stirring and simmering
for about 15 minutes or until all the agar-agar strands are fully dissolved.
Remove the pot from heat and add in the coconut
cream. Flavor to taste with the rose water, then pour into a dish
rinsed out with cold water and allow to set. Cut into various shapes or squares.
Best to be eaten with fingers. Serve chill.
