Agar Susu Kacang dan Cincau - Soy Milk and Grass Jelly Pudding

This can feed quite a lot of people. The 12 servings I put is just my guesstimate on how big a portion per person will need. For the above photo, I managed to divide this into 36 slices. So yeah, I have quite a lot of leftovers, haha. ♥

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 5 mins

Total Time: 15 mins

Serves: 12


  • 1 liter soy milk (Indonesian: susu kacang)
  • 1 packet of (10 gram) of plain agar-agar and jelly powder (I use the one from Swallow Globe Brand)
  • 200 gram grass jelly (Indonesian: cincau), cut into 1 cm cubes


  1. Mix soy milk and agar-agar and jelly powder in a pot. Cook until just steaming (no need to wait for a boil to prevent burnt milk) while stirring all the time.
  2. Strain into a mold (I use a 20cm x 20cm x 5cm pan), then quickly scatter the grass jelly into the still liquid agar.
  3. Let it cool until set. Once it sets, transfer to a fridge to chill for at least 2 hours.
  4. To unmold, run a knife along the pan's edges, cover the pan with a cutting board/serving plate, flip, remove the pan, then cut the agar into slices.

    Happy holidays Anita! I have had soy milk pudding and grass jelly separately but never thought of combining them into one! This sounds like a fantastic dessert or snack dish. Will definitely make it soon. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi there, I tried this recipe last night and today my jelly still haven't set. Do you know what possibilities that it cant set?

    • Anita says:

      Hi Michelle, maybe you are using a different brand? There are 2 types of jelly powder from Swallow Globe, the 7 gram packet pure agar-agar powder, and 10 gram packet agar-agar and jelly powder. I use the 10 gram packet agar-agar and jelly powder. If you use the 7 gram packet pure agar-agar powder, it will not set. I hope this helps. :)

  • Julia Selinda says:

    thank you so much for the recipe! :D how can i substitute agar agar and jelly powder with only agar agar powder? thanks ;)

    • Anita says:

      Hi Julia, I think you can use 1 1/2 packet (10.5 gram) of agar-agar powder. I hope your pudding will turn out wonderful :)
