Rainbow Layered Jelly

Here is my simple recipe for a simple jelly dessert.


11gm (one pack) of agar-agar powder
180gm castor sugar
750ml purified water
some food coloring


  • Mix sugar and agar-agar powder together in a pot so that when we boil it, the agar-agar powder melts well.
  • Add water to the pot and boil under slow fire till sugar melts.
  • When melted, turn fire to low and keep it hot so that the agar-agar mixture does not harden.
  • Take one cup of the mixture and add in some food coloring.
  • Pour into mould and let it cool and slightly harden.
  • Then take another cup of mixture and mix with another color of food coloring of your choice.
  • Repeat process till all agar-agar mixture has been used up.
  • Let it cool and harden completely in the fridge.
  • Best enjoyed cold.
To hasten the cooling process, I shoved them into my freezer for 2 mins at each layer! That is me ... so 'tak sabar'!

Now I know why they can sell these at such expensive prices! The costs includes tonnes of PATIENCE!!!!

I heard they use a different jelly powder for the jelly cakes, more expensive and color don't bleed easily and less watery too. Still, I would not pay tons for something i can gobble up so easily. Have you tried konnyaku ? I love the 'resistance' texture.

can put it into the freezer before it turns cool meh?
will spoil the fridge geh wor...

Next time put the mole on top of a bowl if ice water, it helps to cool it down faster too...
