We are having some crazy heat waves for the past two weeks. So I am not doing much cooking or baking for the time being. We just have salads or sandwiches for our meals. I am craving for something cold and refreshing to ease the heat. Since mangoes are in season and I always have a few in my fridge, I decided to make some agar agar with it.
From My Kitchen Snippets
5 gram agar agar powder
2 cups water
1 cup milk
2 mangoes – cut into chunks
4 - 5 tbsp sugar (depend on how sweet you like it)
2. In a saucepan, bring the water and agar agar to boil. Lower down the heat and let it simmer of 3 minutes or until agar agar powder dissolve.
3. Add in the mango puree and sugar. Once it comes up to a boils, turn off the heat immediately or else the milk will curdle. Check if the sweetness is to your likings.
4. Pour it into the mould and let it set in the fridge before serving.
