068 - Coffee Jelly

Japanese people are creative with their dessert. Endless array of sweets awaits you if you ever come to visit Japan someday. 
One of my favorite is this COFFEE JELLY. 

It is basically coffee mixed with sugar and agar added. Add some evaporated milk, and, BOOM. Delicious.

For 6 portion, you will need;

·         Water – 600 ml
·         Agar Agar – 1 Packet (Approximately 15 grams)
·         Coffee – 2,5 Tbsp. Instant coffee do just fine, but freshly ground coffee is even better.
·         Sugar – 2,5 Tbsp. Brown sugar, white sugar, whatever sugar worked just fine.
·         Evaporated Milk – 1 Can

Ready? Here We Go!

Step 1 – Pour the water into a large pot, set the heat to high. Let It come to a boil

Step 2 – Once boiling, add the Agar and quickly stir to combine. After that, add the sugar. Again, stir to combine. Let it boil for another 1 minute.


Step 3 – Remove the pot from the heat, then add the Coffee. Give it a nice stir.

Step 4 – Transfer the mix to a mold of your choice; let it cool in room temperature for 20 minutes before putting it into the fridge for an additional 2 hours. After 2 hours, take it out, cut it into small squares and..

Tip: remove the air bubbles for great finish!

Step 5 - SERVE!

To make sure you get the best of both worlds, make sure both the Jelly and the Milk is cold prior to serving.
