Agar-agar Dessert

INGREDIENTS

2 cups water
1 cup sugar, divided
2 Tbsp. agar-agar powder, divided
Food coloring (choose desired color)
2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
Pinch salt

PREPARATION

• In a saucepan, combine 2 cups water, ½ cup sugar, 1 tablespoon agar-agar powder and 2 to 3 drops of food coloring. Dissolve the agar-agar over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then simmer until slightly thickened.
• Pour the liquid into a 9-inch pie plate or a jelly mold. Let rest at room temperature until set, about 30 minutes.
• Once the layer has cooled, prepare the next layer: Combine 2 cups coconut milk, ½ cup sugar, 1 tablespoon agar-agar powder and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Dissolve the agar-agar over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then simmer until slightly thickened.
• Pour the liquid on top of the first layer and let set at room temperature, approximately 30 minutes.
• Once the second layer has cooled, use a knife to loosen the gelatin from the side of the pan and slide the dessert onto a serving platter. Carve a design in the top layer, if desired. To serve, cut into squares or pie-shaped wedges.
