I thought we are having some nice autumn temperature but it turn out hot and humid again a few days ago. With weather like this I normally like some cold sweet soup of grated winter melon and dried logan but since it is the Royal Selangor Jellyriffic challenge I make it into jelly. I omit the winter melon and added agar agar powder to it. Nice little dessert for the hot summer like weather.
1/2 cup dried longan
1 tbsp wolfberry/gojiberries
6 dried red dates
1 pandan leaf
500 ml water
1 tsp agar agar powder + 1 tbsp water
1 tbsp sugar – more if you like it sweeter
1. Wash the dried longan, wolfberries, red dates and set it aside.
2. Bring the water to a boil; add in the washed ingredients and pandan leaf. Bring it up to a boil and turn down the heat let it simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Mix the agar agar powder with water and add it into the simmering pot. Bring it up to a boil and continue to stir until agar agar powder dissolve. Add in the sugar.
4. Wet the jelly moulds. Pour it into the Jelly moulds and let it set completely. Serve cold.
