We are experiencing some severe heat wave here on the East Coast and the temperature sore up to upper 90’s and someday over 100 degree for the past few weeks. In the weather like this I tried to lay off cooking and baking as much as possible and all I want is to drink and eat something cooling and sweet. This milk pudding is such a nice treat for all of us in this scorching heat . No relief in sight yet. Crazy it may sound but I wish it is winter now :)
600 ml water
120 gram sugar
8 gram agar agar powder
3 pandan leaves
300 ml milk
200 ml coconut milk
A few drop of pandan paste
1. In a medium size saucepan bring the water, agar agar power and pandan leaves to boil. Let it boil for 3 minute until agar agar power.
2. Add in sugar; continue to stir until sugar dissolved. Lastly pour in the milk and coconut milk. Turn down the heat and bring the mixture to a slow simmer. Turn off the heat and remove the pandan leaves.
3. Remove ¾ of the mixture and add in a small drop of pandan paste. Pour into prepared pan or mould. Let it set before pouring the balance of the agar agar (white portion) mixture on top. Let it set and serve cold.
