Blue Pea Santan Agar Agar (Ang Ku Kueh Jelly Mould)


This is #5 of a series of agar agar made in jelly moulds in the shape of “Ang Ku Kueh”. This recipe is flavoured with Bunga Telang (Blue Pea Butterfly Flowers) and pandan leaves. I have used dried flowers to extract the deep blue colour and added canned fruits (longan and pineapple). Of course you could add whatever fruits you like. With the layer of santan agar agar, this dessert tastes just as refreshing without fruits.
