Mango coconut Jelly


Today was a tiring day with spring cleaning the bed rooms.  It had been quite sometime that I had cleaned the rooms imagine moving the furniture all around to remove the dust that is stuck very easily underneath. Pulling the vaccum cleaner from one end to the other, trying to make all the joints touch ough.. no i still have to bent out to clean all the remaining which i just can’t reach with my vaccum. Usually Gana helps with the vaccum and i do the rest of the cleaning, but today he had to meet my daughters school teacher., so ended up i doing al the cleaning. I dunno how you guys manage with cleaning the carpets in cold countries. oh only if we had a magic wand to clean all the dust choo mantar… So half the morning i am done, just check my fridge to cook for lunch. Lunch was a comfort dish with tave, tambli, soppina palya and badnekai/brinjal bajji will post this recipe sometime. After lunch I had to keep up my promise with my daughter to bake pizza….evening was a pizza session unlinke i wanted to make some chat. Finally comes the dessert, I had half mango puree left after cooking AFAM so thought of trying jelly which my kids love.

Mango-coconut jelly

Jelly_ingreAll you need: water – 600 ml, saffron threads – 10, coconut milk thick – 100 ml, sugar – 180 gms, whipping cream – 100 ml, ice cream vanilla or mango – 4 tbsp, agar agar – 1 packet, mango fruits cut into small pieces.

Method: Heat sugar, agar agar and water according to instructions. Let it cool for 10-15 mins. mix ice cream, whipping cream well  in a seperate bowl until no lumps. The agar- agar mixture should be warm. Mix in all the other ingredients one by one mixing well. Pour into moulds and serve chilled. Enjoy the delicious jellys. It makes atleast around 15 pieces.

Note: The quantity of liquid may vary according to instruction of the agar agar packet. I used 12 gm packet which is meant for 1 litre. Mine was little less than 1 litre so i guess you can add any one of the ingredient more to obtain more less firmer jelly.

    LOL at ur spring cleaning session i haven’t yet started mine
    mango jelly looks quite delicious and very pretty. i have just brought a pack of gelatine and have to make something using it

    howdu sia, only during my daughters hols i am get the time to do cleaning, Actually you can use gelatin instead of Agar Agar. I somehow never tried gelatin yet as i found i can use agar agar as substitute i use this.
