Simple Agar Agar Jelly – Vegan Jelly using Agar Agar Powder

Agar Agar or China Grass is a vegetarian substitute for gelatin. Here, I use agar agar powder to make these Simple Agar Agar Jelly Bites. You can also use the agar agar strips, but it takes soaking and longer time for the strips to dissolve and melt into the solution. The powder is available in the Asian section of your supermarket along with other baking items.

Agar Agar can be flavored with fresh juice or extract as well as milk or coconut milk. You can add chopped fruits or basil seeds to the moulds, making them more attractive. Other ingredients like corn kernels are also sometimes used. The jelly can be poured into one large mould or several small ones like I have done. My jellies are simple strawberry flavored and very refreshing!

Notes: 
  • If you want a softer texture, reduce the amount of water/milk. However, for bite size jellies: the amount specified is best. It results in a nice smooth texture that can be bitten into instead of scooped like a pudding.

Key Ingredients: Agar Agar powder, water, sugar, evaporated milk, flavoring.
