2 tablespoons agar-agar powder
1 tablespoon instant coffee
1 cup sugar
3 cups water
2 tablespoons warm water


1 cups coconut cream
1 tablespoon agar-agar powder
cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt

Special utensil: - a brass wok, jelly molds


Mix the instant coffee with warm water and set aside.

Mix agar-agar powder with water, bring to the boil over medium heat. Stir continuously until all the agar-agar dissolves, then add sugar. Continue boiling until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture boils well. Add mixed coffee, stir well, then remove from the heat. Pour the mixture into a pan, and place the pan in a bowl of warm water, set aside.

To make the coconut cream topping: mix water and agar­-agar powder together, bring to the boil over medium heat. Boil until the agar-agar dissolves, then add coconut cream, sugar and salt together. Stir regularly to prevent the coconut cream from separating. Boil until the mixture dissolve completely, remove from heat, and place the pan in a bowl of warm water as well.

Spoon 2 tablespoonful of the coffee mixture into each mold, leave to almost set. Then spoon the same amount of the coconut mixture over and leave to almost set. Continue with this process until each mold is full. Leave to completely cool before remove from the mold.


The coffee jelly will be more aromatic if the jasmine-flavored water is used instead of water.
