This agar agar jelly is a mishmash of santan (coconut milk), rose and blue pea agar agar, chin chow (grass jelly) and can lychee fruit. All combined together with different flavours and textures complementing each other. It is also visually appealing with different colours and shapes depending on the amount of ingredients and types of jelly moulds. Makes a cool looking dessert for parties.
