Agar-Agar

On a boring Saturday, Siang Leng and I decided to make some agar-agar lol. Didn’t know agar-agar is actually obtained from red algae or seaweed until I read this article.

Making the agar-agar is super easy. So easy that I am embarassed to include this under the Recipe category. But anyway :D

The ingredients:

  • [tag]Agar-agar[/tag] (stick/powder form)
  • Water
  • Sugar
  • Pandan leaves
  • Baking moulds
  • Food coloring

Steps:

  1. If you are using agar-agar sticks, soak them in water for 10-20 minutes to let them soften a bit first.
  2. Amount of water to boil is proportional to the amount of agar-agar used. The agar-agar (Ferry brand) I bought from Sunshine supermarket is around 300g and according to its instructions, 2.5 litre of water is needed.
  3. Put the agar-agar into the boiling water and add 15-20 tablespoon of sugar.
  4. When the agar-agar has fully dissolved, add in the pandan leaves and a few drops of coloring. Mix well and let it boil a while more.
  5. Drain the agar-agar mixture with a very fine sieve to get rid of undissolved agar-agar. Let the mixture cool down a bit.
  6. Pour the mixture into baking moulds and keep refrigerated for an hour.

  1. Hi, did u mean 30 gm of agar-agar? 300 gms is so so much for agar-agar. Just imagine 30gm of flour. Is it as much? I think the packing is 30gm for a larger pack, and 15 gms for a smaller pack, if i’m not mistaken.
