Longan Agar






My search for the smooth agar texture has ended. I finally got the right texture, firm but smooth in the mouth



Pudding Agar-agar

2 Litre water
3 tsp agar agar powder
300g sugar ( approx 1 1/2 cup)
10 pandan leaves

1 tin evaporated milk (I'm using Ideal Milk)


Method
1. Bring everything to boil except evaporated milk.
2. Once boil, add in evaporated milk and let it boil for second time
3. Turn off flame, sieve and pour into container to set
4. Let it cool slightly at room temperature before chilling in fridge

If you are a durian lover you might wanna try

Durian Pudding
recipe modified from "Pretty Little agar-agar" by Amy Wong

80ml coconut milk (you may use evaporated milk)
150g durian

2 tsp agar-agar powder
850ml water
100g sugar

Method
1. Blend the durian n milk. Set aside
2. Bring agar powder, water and sugar to boil
3. Add in durian puree
4. Let it boil again, sieve and pour into container

Note :
*I prefer Ideal Milk as the it gives richer milky taste compare to Carnation.



#1st Testing
4 tsp agar powder
2 litre water
300g sugar
1 tin evaporated milk




The texture is firm and smooth. My mil comment that the texture can better . So test again with 1 tsp of agar powder the next day

#2nd Testing
2 tsp agar powder
2 litre water
300g sugar
1 tin evaporated milk


This time the texture is gooey. When u shake the agar in the cup, it doesn't stay firm. It has 'tau hu fah' texture smooth and almost melt in your mouth. In fact is too soft. So the testing will go on tomorrow with 1.5 tsp of agar powder
The recipe is suitable for  cut out agar





**If you prefer richer pudding , you might wanna try this :

1.5 tsp agar powder
800ml water
120g sugar
1 tin evaporated milk (400g)
