No, there is no watermelon in this pudding. It is just the pudding looking like a watermelon :) This particular pudding has been floating around the local Malaysian blogs for some time now. Inspired by the beautiful results I tried creating it with the Jelly mould. It is a bit of work but I love the end results. The next time I make this again I will have to add a bit more sesame seeds to it.
1 ¼ tsp agar agar powder
150 ml water
300 ml soy milk
40 gram sugar
½ tsp vanilla
½ tsp black sesame seeds
A few drops of yellow, pink and green coloring
1. Combined the agar agar powder and water. Cook over medium heat until agar agar powder dissolved. Whisk egg and soy milk with a fork until combined.
2. Strain it into the agar agar mixture and continue to stir until it boils. Add in the sugar and vanilla.
3. Strain the mixture again. Take about ¾ of the mixture and divide it into half. Mix one with yellow color and some sesame seeds and the other one with pink coloring and some sesame seeds.
4. Pour them into the Jelly moulds and let it set. While waiting for the mixture to set make sure the balance of the agar agar mixture sits on a pan of boiling water. This is to avoid the agar to set.
5. Once the agar agar is set, scratch the surface with a toothpick. Pour in a bit of the white mixture to the colored one and let it set again.
6. Add a drop of green coloring to the rest of the mixture and once the white it set, scratch the surface with a toothpick. Pour the green on top of it. Let it set completely before unmolding it.
7. Serve cold either whole or cut into wedges.
