Pandan agar-agar with coconut milk recipe

I had some free time yesterday morning whilst waiting for the kids to get up from bed. After I've had a cup of coffee, watered my plants, done the laundry and run the dishwasher, I've decided to make agar-agar for dessert.

Pandan agar-agar is something that I used to make during my secondary school years. I used to have a good recipe for pandan agar-agar, given by my mum, but had unfortunately lost it. It has been at least 10 years since I last make one.

I still remembered the ingredients though, although not the amount of ingredients. Luckily, the pandan agar-agar made came out perfect, and all my kids loved it.


Pandan agar-agar


Here is the recipe that I used:

Ingredients:
A packet of agar-agar powder
230 g of sugar
750 ml of water
200 ml of coconut milk
1 egg
Some pandan leaves

Part of the ingredients used

*Note: I used swallow globe brand agar-agar powder in green, you can also use the clear version instead. The original recipe from the agar-agar powder packet called for 250 grams of sugar and 1 liter of water, but since I am replacing the water with a mixture of coconut milk, egg and water, I have reduced the sugar amount by 20 grams.

Method:
1. Blend together water with the pandan leaves to get pandan extract. Sieve through a strainer.
Pandan extract made by processing pandan leaves and water using a food processor/blender

2. Mix the pandan extract with sugar and agar-agar powder and bring to boil in a pot, stirring occasionally.
3. In a different container, mix the coconut milk and egg.
4. Once the sugar and agar-agar powder had dissolved and the mixture has started to boil, mix in the coconut milk and egg mixture.
5. Stir well and let it simmer for a while before turning off the heat.
6. Pour the mixture into a container (i used a 7 x 7 inches of square cake pan) and let it cool before transferring it into a refrigerator to set.
I used a 7 x 7 inches container, and the height of the agar-agar came out great
