This is a childhood dessert that my mum makes whenever there is a special occassion. I have since took over the baking and dessert preparation role except the cooking which I do hope to pick up gradually. I have already miss the chance to pick up from my grandma her recipes and cooking skills.
I attempted this recipe once but couldn’t get the 2 layers effect, it became all mixed in one. It’s been a warm weekend and I didn’t want to waste a day not doing anything so with the fresh coconut milk in hand, thought it’s good to attempt the agar agar again. I’ve read several recipe book to make separate layers meaning wait for one layer to set before pouring the next but this didn’t require it this way. The trick here is to pour the coconut milk once the agar agar bubbles, then pour straight to the mould without stiring. The pictures are from the ramekin but I couldn’t get the same effect on the bigger Hello Kitty Mould. Talking about it, I really had a Merry Kitty Christmas this year, the Christmas gift I receive are all related to Hello Kitty, I’ve now a table light, a 2-layer lunch box, a bin and a solar activated toy to add to my collection!
I love how the coconut layer appears, with the little flakes around. For now, I’ll keep myself happy with this dessert!
