AGAR-AGAR LONGAN

Mmmm!
This is a Malaysian desert with a little twist in it; I mean the color and the longan fruit.
It's an easy to prepare and fast.
The ingredients are:
  • agar-agar - 1 pack
  • sugar - 1 1/2 cups
  • thick coconut milk - 1 cup
  • canned longan - 1 can chopped
  • water - 5 cups
  • yellow food coloring (can be color of your choice)
  1. After bringing the water to boil, add the agar-agar and let it dissolve in boiling for about 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Then add sugar, keep stirring until sugar dissolve.
  3. Now mix the coconut milk and food coloring.
  4. Pour the mixture into a tray and let it thicken . It usually takes 2 to 3 hours
  5. Cut into your favorite shape and serve it.
***********Agar-agar is a substitute for gelatine. Agar-agar is made out of seaweed. Many sweets and desserts in Asia uses agar-agar; mainly in Malaysia and Indonesia.************

Kay..looks good! So can i use unflavored gelatin instead of agar-agar?

I guess agar-agar is still the best. Don't you think so Kay? Agar-agar is a craze among the young and old in Malaysia. You will agree with me after trying Kay's recipe.

Shankari,
you certainly can use gelatin. Instead of the longan fruit, you can also substitute with any other fruit of your choice or combination of few fruit.
If colorful fruits are used, then there is no need for food coloring.

Malaysians certainly like the taste of agar-agar better, as we grew up eating it and the texture is little different.
