Coconut & mango agar-agar

(4.33/5 - 6 votes)


1/2 cup azuki beans
5 cups water

Coconut agar-agar ~
(recipe from here)

400ml coconut milk
400ml water
* may have to adjust water level depending on thickness of coconut milk
100gm sugar
4 tsps agar powder
Pinch of salt
1 pandan leaf - knotted

Mango agar-agar ~

Purée from 1 mango - approx. 60ml
375ml water
2 tbsps sugar
1 tsp agar powder
Pinch of salt
1 pandan leaf - knotted


1. Boil azuki beans in water until tender - will take about 45 min. to an hour.

2. Prepare coconut agar-agar & mango agar-agar at close intervals:

3. Simmer ingredients for coconut agar-agar in a pot for about 5 min.

4. Simmer ingredients for mango agar-agar in a separate pot for about 5 min.

5. Spoon in boiled azuki beans into mould. Pour prepared coconut agar-agar into mould and let it set briefly in the fridge - don't let it set all the way (maybe about 3/4 of the way through). Now pour the hot mango agar-agar over this first layer - this ensures that the mango agar-agar layer gels onto the coconut agar-agar and doesn't fall apart when cooled completely.

6. Let the whole thing set for about two hours before unmoulding.

Sounds wonderful, but looks messy. Problem is, I don't understand the measurements- 60 ml, 100 gm. 400 ml, what does that mean? What is a pandan leaf and how do you knot it? what exactly does agar-agar mean? And what is a azuki bean? Where can I get some?
