:: Longan & Strawberry Pudding ::

My younger twin son, Adib grabbed a can of longan during our weekly visit to the grocery store. Using Kak Hanieliza’s lychee pudding recipe, I altered it according to what I imagine.

It turned out great!

:: Ingredients ::
1 packet of agar-agar (I used the strand type)
1.5 l of water
1.5 cup sugar (I used not even 1.5 cup, almost 1.5 cup)
1 can of longan
1 can of evaporated milk
2 tsp of strawberry emulco (it would be great to have fresh strawberry I think)

:: Method ::
1. Separate the longan from its syrup. Set aside.
2. Boil water, sugar and agar-agar till dissolved.
3. Once dissolved, add it the evaporated milk and stir well.
4. Set aside ¼ of the mixture in another bowl. Mix in the strawberry emulco.
5. Pour in the longan syrup in the remaining mixture. Mix well.
6. Prepare some containers for the jelly. First pour in the strawberry.
7. Once the strawberry layer is set, pour in the longan mixture.
8. Add in some longan chunks in the jelly.
9. Serve cool.

Note : the jelly is soft. Pretty hard to take out from mould. Would recommend individual serving to avoid embarrassment. :p
