This is my first time making jelly mooncake. I've looked thru some recipes and finally found one which is not too complicated to make. But even so, it turned to be not as easy as i thought. I got not much problem making the jelly mooncake filling but not for the jelly mooncake skin. My 1st two attempts failed, either the solution too thick, too lumpy or too little and i hardly make jellies. I still have to make the jelly skin no matter what since i've already have the mooncake filling ready. Aunty Yochana came to the rescue, yeah i found she also had this cendol agar-agar mooncakes in her recipes. So the 3rd attempt was successful. It is a much simpler version and easy to make. Thank you, aunty yochana.
Here's the recipe:
Cendol agar-agar mooncake filling ( makes 6)
2tsps agar agar powder
1/2 tsp instant jelly
60 gm caster sugar
1/8 tsp salt

1. Place the agar agar powder, instant jelly, sugar, salt and water in a pot and cook it in medium fire.
Bring it to a boil.
2. Then add in coconut milk and bring it to another boil. Add in the cendol and mix well. Pour the solution
into small cups. Let it set.
