Last saturday, Batrisyia dan Aiman pergi sekolah. My Hubby pulak seperti biasa golfing. So tinggal Afiqah (my eldest daughter) and I at home. Apa nak buat.... Baju dah masukkan dalam washing machine, nak mengadap computer malas lah pulak.
Teringat pulak Afiqah a.k.a Akak nak makan jelly marble, based on my late mother's recipe. Biasalah kan recipe orang dulu2 mana ada specific berat or amount for the ingredients. Semua main secukup rasa. So, kali ni saya cuba convert "agak-agak" kepada specific amount. Let start....
- 1 packet (37.5gm) agar-agar
- 1.5l water
- 3 whole eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 8 tablespoons custard powder
- 4 tablespoons cornstarch
- 500ml milk (or 1 can evaporated milk)
- 2 tablespoon butter
- 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1 vanilla pod (1teaspoon vanilla extract)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
In a medium to large saucepan combine water and the whole packet of agar-agar. Cook over medium heat and stir occasionally. Let it slowly come to a boil.
Add sugar (once the agar-agar is completely dissolved). Add vanilla pod or extract and salt once the sugar is dissolved.
custard and cornstarch
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the flour and the eggs.
Add milk to the mixture. I used fresh milk, but my late mother always used a can of evaporated milk. Whisk until smooth.
Once the sugar is dissolved, slowly, pour the egg mixture into the agar-agar mixture. Strain the egg mixture, if you want a smooth jelly.
Whisk the mixture until smooth and thicken. Make sure to cook under medium heat. Do not boil. Remove from heat, stir in butter. Divide the mixture into two parts (two separate mixing bowls).
Mixed cocoa powder in one of the mixture.
Spoon the vanilla mixture into the mould. I just used a big bowl. However, you can use any jelly mould, any shape and any size....
alternately spoon chocolate mixture
Chill the jelly for a few hours....
To invert the jelly, press the edges down slightly with a spoon and it should be able to invert onto a serving plate easily.
If you use big bowl like mine, you can always cut it into any shape and any size .....
