Ingredients

  • Pandan extract
  • 50 gram fresh/frozen pandan leaves, cut into thin strips
  • 1 cup water
  • Green layer agar
  • 250 ml (1 cup) pandan extract
  • 200 ml water
  • 50 gram sugar
  • 3.5 gram (1/2 packet) agar-agar powder (I have tried with Now Foods and Swallow brand)
  • White layer agar
  • 250 ml coconut milk
  • 200 ml water
  • 50 gram sugar
  • 3.5 gram (1/2 packet) agar-agar powder

Instructions

  • Pandan extract
    1. Puree together pandan leaves and water in a blender until the leaves are completely pulverized. Strained and squeezed to get pandan extract. You should end up with 1 cup extract.
  • Green layer agar
    1. Place pandan extract, water, sugar, and agar-agar powder in a small sauce pot. Bring to a boil while stirring so everything is well mixed. Pour into mould(s).
    2. Let the agar firm up a bit in the fridge before pouring the next layer. Usually 5 minutes should be enough.
  • White layer agar
    1. Place coconut milk, water, sugar, and agar-agar powder in a small sauce pot. Bring to a boil while stirring so everything is well mixed. Pour into mould(s) on top of the firmed up green layer agar. Be as gentle as you can so the two layers don't end up mixed together.
