Singapore Flag 🇸🇬 Semi-Coconut Jelly

4 pudding bottles of semi-coconut agar-agar jellies prepared in celebration of Singapore 52nd National Day 🇸🇬🎊
As the jellies were prepared in a hurry, hence not many photos were taken for this recipe 😬

Serving: 4 x 200ml pudding bottles


5g agar agar strips *
400g water
1~2 blades pandan leaves
50g fine sugar

100g cold coconut milk
Pinch of salt 

100g water
Red food colouring

* If you prefer a stiffer jelly, you can increase the agar agar strips to 6g. The 5g quantity is just nice for scooping from a cup.


1. Rinse and soak the dried agar agar strips for about 15 to 20 minutes. The final weight of the soaked agar agar was about 26 to 27g.
Drain away the water and cut the agar agar strips into shorter length.

2. Heat agar agar strips with 400g of water and pandan leaves till all the agar agar strips dissolve. Cover the pot with a lid to prevent water lose through evaporation.

3. Add 50g of fine sugar to the agar agar water, stir till all the sugar dissolved.

4. Pour out about 240g of the agar agar water into a mixing bowl, and mix with the cold coconut milk and pinch of salt till well combined.

5. Pour about 70g each of the coconut-agar agar mixture into 4 pudding bottles. Refrigerate them till the surface harden (about 15 to 20 minutes).

6. Pour the remaining about 60~50g of the coconut-agar agar mixture into a flat plate lined with a cling wrap or a parchment paper. The thickness was about 2 to 3 mm. Refrigerate till the layer solidified.

Cut out 4 crescent moons and 20 stars using the shape cutters.
Pour cold water over to lift out the cut shapes. Set aside.

or you can cut to any desired shape.

7. Add 100g of water and red food colouring to the remaining agar agar water in the pot. You can keep warm about 1 tbsp of agar agar water without the red food colouring for sticking the moons and stars later.

8. Pour the red colour agar-agar-water above the coconut-agar-agar layer. Refrigerate till the layer set (about 10 to 15 minutes).

9. Pour about a teapoon of colour-less agar agar water over the set red agar agar layer. Arrange one crescent moon and 5 stars above the red layer of each bottle of agar agar jelly.

or other shape

10. Refrigerate and serve them cold. Enjoy the jellies 🍧
Happy National Day, Singapore 🇸🇬🎊🎈
