Agar-agar is a product of gelatinous seaweed and it is available in dried form. For health reason, instead of using artificial colouring, I used the juice from a red dragon fruit (pitaya). The final colour of my agar-agar jelly is deep pink. Actually it looks quite nice and tasty!
Dried Agar-agar strips, 1 packet, 1.5 oz
Sugar to taste
Dragon fruit juice, sieved, ½ cup
Bring water to a boil. Add agar-agar strips and keep on stirring the mixture until all agar-agar strips are dissolved. Add sugar and dragon fruit juice. When the sugar dissolves, pour the mixture into a mould. Let it cool down to room temperature and then put it in the fridge. Serve this wonderful dessert chilled!
