Recently I shared a Pink coloured agar agar jelly recipe. Well this time it’s for the “Boys” – Blue coloured agar agar jelly….haha. This recipe is fairly simple as you only need to make 1 layer of santan and blue pea flower extract in the agar agar mixture. When it is cooling down, the santan will slowly separate and float up, creating 2 layers as can be seen in the photos. Not because I’m a guy, but I think this Blue agar agar jelly looks more impressive than the pink one. What do you think ladies?

- 50 dried blue pea flowers bunga telang
- 100 ml water
- 400 ml water
- ½ packet agar agar powder 6 g
- 100 g sugar
- 200 ml santan coconut milk
- ¼ tsp salt
- Pandan leaves crushed (optional)
- ¼ tsp essence of your choice optional
Wash dried blue pea flowers and boil in water.
After water has turned dark blue, switch off flame. Use a sieve to strain off the flowers and squeeze out the dark blue water.
In a pot of water, add agar agar powder and sugar.
Stir well before turning on heat and bring to a boil. Ensure that agar agar powder is completely dissolved. Boil for a few minutes with pandan leaves (optional). Switch off flame and remove the leaves.
Slowly add blue pea flower extract (to achieve the desired colour), stir well and bring it to a boil. Add essence of your choice (optional).
Add santan (coconut milk) with salt and mix well.
Let the mixture boil for a while and switch off flame.
Scoop agar agar liquid into glass containers or jelly moulds. Remove bubbles on the surface with a spoon. Set aside to cool. The santan will slowly separate and float up, creating 2 layers.
Once set, chill in refrigerator for a few hours before serving.
If you want to have a thinner layer of santan, reduce the coconut milk to 120 g.
