Ingredients

For the Coconut Layer

  • 1 package (.70 ounces) clear agar-agar bars
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 can (19 ounces) coconut milk

For the Pandan Layer

  • 1 package (.70 ounces) green agar-agar bars
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cups coconut juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pandan extract

Instructions

  • Tear clear agar-agar bars into thin pieces. In a saucepot, combine the agar-agar and water. Soak for about 30 minutes.
  • Tear green agar-agar bars into thin pieces. In another saucepot, combine with water and coconut juice. Soak for about 30 minutes.
  • Over medium heat, bring the clear agar-agar mixture to a boil, stirring regularly, until agar-agar is completely dissolved.
  • Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Continue to cook for about 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Lower heat and add coconut milk. Simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a 9 x 13 pan. Use a toothpick to pop any bubbles.
  • Allow to the coconut layer to set.
  • In a pot over medium heat, bring green agar-agar mixture to a boil, stirring regularly, until agar-agar melts.
  • Add sugar and stir until dissolved.
  • Add pandan extract and stir to combine.
  • Continue to cook for about 10 to 15 minutes. Keep warm on very low heat on the stove until ready to pour onto coconut layer.
  • When the coconut layer is firm to touch but still slightly warm, gently pour pandan layer on top. Use a toothpick to pop any bubbles.
  • Allow the jelly to cool and refrigerate to set completely.
  • To serve, run a blunt knife around the edges of the pan to loosen jelly. Carefully invert on serving platter and cut into serving portions.
