Chendol Agar Agar With Mahjong Tiles Birthday Cake!

#Cendol or #Chendol, is a popular tradition dessert in Asia. Basic ingredients include coconut milk, red beans, worm-like jelly noodles made from pandan rice flour, then topped with shaved ice and palm sugar ( gula melaka ).

Today, I'm gonna make a Chendol Agar Agar instead of serving the dessert in a bowl of shaved ice. The recipe was adapted from #Kara Coconut Cream; I love the rich coconut taste especially with the gula melaka!

This Chendol Jelly Cake actually acts as a Mahjong Table for my Mahjong Tiles Agar Agar. Does this impress you?

I'm using the Swallow Globe Brand agar agar powder here in my recipe. This jelly cake was for a potluck party. Hence, an Aluminum Tray (322mm x 260mm x 64mm) was used for the purpose of transportation.

Ingredients:

400 ml Water
250 ml Kara Coconut Cream
250 ml extra Water
1 pkt or 10g Agar agar powder
30g Cornstarch
2 Pandan leaves
500g Chendol strips
150g Red beans
150g Palm Fruits ( Attap Chee )
160g Sugar
¼ tsp Salt

  28. Hi, can I use coconut milk instead of cream as I bought wrongly from the store. Is there any changes to make if I'm using coconut milk?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Felicia, I've not tried using milk but definitely the taste & smell will not be as good.

      If you really want to use milk, maybe try replacing the 400ml water & 250ml coconut milk to 550ml - 600ml of milk instead. As milk is more watery compared to coconut milk, you need to use less water.

      So instead of boiling pandan leaves with water, you'll have to do it at the next step when you prepare the agar mixture.

      I don't guarantee it works as well but worth giving it a try. Good luck! Do let me know if it turns out well. xoxo
