Dragon Fruit Jelly With Agar Agar

Ingredients to make Dragon Fruit Jelly With Agar Agar

  • 800 ml water
  • 10 gram Agar powder
  • 100 ml additional water( for dissolving agar powder)
  • 3/4 cup flesh of red Dragon fruit
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 250 grams sugar( I have used brown sugar)

How to make Dragon Fruit Jelly With Agar Agar

  1. Cut the Dragon fruit and scoop out the flesh using a spoon.
  2. Mash the flesh of the fruit with fork or whip it using a blender.
  3. Mix the brown sugar with 800 ml water and bring to boil in a sauce pan or heavy bottom pan.
  4. Mix the agar-agar powder with the additional 100 ml water, and pour into the boiling syrup, bring to another boil and let simmer for 1 minute.
  5. Keep stirring to prevent the agar-agar from coagulating around the sides of the pan.
  6. Add in the Dragon fruit puree and mix well.
  7. Put off the flame and add lemon juice . Give a quick stir and the pour the liquid into jelly mould.
  8. Let it cool and chill in fridge for at least 3 hours before serving. Run a butter knife through the edge of the mould and gently squeeze the mould to release the agar agar .
  9. Alternatively cut the jelly into desired shapes using the butter knife if you have set the jelly in a container.

My Tip:

Agar Agar is easily available in Asian super markets in powder form or as strips and threads. I have used the agar powder for this jelly as it readily dissolves in water. If using strips or threads cut them into small pieces. Strips require pre soaking. Follow the instructions on the packet as the procedure may slightly vary according to the form of agar used. Generally the ratio of agar to water to get a firm jelly is 15 grams of agar (powder or strips) to 1 liter of water / liquid. Can follow the same procedure and try different combination of fruits in the jelly. Can try lychee and raspberries, or tender coconut flesh and rose water or lemon juice . Possibilities are endless.
