Blue Pea Santan Agar Agar Jelly with Longan

Adding a layer of santan (coconut milk) on top of any agar agar jelly dessert will always make it extra flavourful. What about adding fruits then? The texture and flavours are varied according to the types of fruits. Well I’ve decided to add a local fruit – canned longan. I left out the syrup as it doesn’t go well with the blue pea flower. A refreshing cooling dessert for that hot sunny weather.
