Gula Melaka (Palm Sugar) Agar-Agar 椰糖燕菜

Gula Melaka (Palm Sugar) Agar-Agar 椰糖燕菜

I thought this look really interesting, single  mixture that separates into 2 layers after left standing, and that artistic looking pattern that appear naturally in the coconut (white) layer. So, I assume the kids will surely jump up and down in excitement when they see this. Well, too bad, could it be the brownish color? They doesn't seem to be excited at all!

Anyway, less for them means more agar-agar for me. It may not look appealing to young toddlers but it sure taste great, especially these were made using palm sugar bought all the way from Melaka. I find the palm sugar produced there has an irresistible fragrant. So far I haven't find a better source for palm sugar yet.

The agar-agar is refreshingly good, with two distinct flavours from the two layers. White layers tasted more 'milky', which I love, and the other one had more 'crunch' in it. The pandan leaves surely add a nice fragrant to the agar-agar!
