Mango Coconut Jelly

So, what else is new with nava-k? Pretty much nothing much except the daily career and managing the vibes of my home affairs routine. Hectic enough I suppose? I am sure all you career women can understand how it is like? Whoever said we can easily achieve the balance between both? As easily preached by the so claimed marriage gurus? Not for me though. Nevertheless, putting a decent meal on the table for our family I suppose is part of our marriage commitment, don't you think so ladies? Indeed. For me personally. And then if I can squeeze in time, maybe during long holidays or weekends, I will attempt a dessert. Entering now in this precious space of mine today is this Mango Coconut Jelly (Pandan Jelly With Coconut Milk). Just a couple of ingredients, definitely must be ingredients from our Malaysian ground and a jelly which I believe you won't struggle with. Except maybe the time for layering between the mango mixture and coconut mixture. Other than that, Mango Coconut Jelly is a clean sweep in terms of making and for its sweet, mildly tangy, smooth and creamy tastes. Joy to our Malaysian jelly world! 

20g seaweed - soak for 1/2 hour and drain off water. 
1 (abt 500g) ripe mango - remove skin and purée/process the flesh to a thick juice
1 cup thick coconut milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 litre of water

Simmer water.
Add seaweed and sugar.
Stir to dissolve both.
Remove from heat, strain and divide into two portions. 
Stir mango in one portion and the other with coconut milk.
Then layer - pour a layer of the coconut mixture into a flat tray and let it set.
Over it pour the mango mixture.
Preferably thin layers so that they harden faster.
Keep layering until both the mixtures finishes off.
(Note: the layering has be done before both the mixtures harden)
Cool down and cut into pieces.
You can also chill it the fridge before serving.
