Coconut Jelly With Mango

Between the various types of desserts, occasionally, I make jellies. Easily made with agar-agar/jelly powder, the other great thing about jellies is that you can make a day earlier prior to special occasions or even for the family (mango and coconut layered jelly, dragon fruit and coconut jelly & coconut and grapefruit jelly).  However, unless you like frozen jellies, I am afraid they will become watery within the next 2 days or so. Therefore, either make in small quantity or heartily tuck in as not to waste. Now, this jelly is the most easiest because you just have to made the coconut flavored jelly and team it with fresh slices of mango. Yum! 
1/2 packet agar-agar/seaweed strands - soaked for 1/2 hour to soften. 
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup thick coconut milk
1/2 cup sugar (or as preferred)
1 medium size mango - remove skin and cubed.

Simmer water and sugar till heated through.
Add agar-agar and stir to dissolve. 
Now stir in coconut milk for 1 min  or two. 
Remove from heat, strain mixture and pour into moulds. 
Cool down and chill in the fridge. 
Once set, gently slide jelly from mould and serve with mango cubes.
