Pumpkin Pandan (Screwpine) Jelly

I'm like a lazy person when desserts are a concern. Especially baking which definitely calls for buckets and buckets of patience and precise technic. Dessert (Dragon Fruit Coconut Jelly) like this pumpkin pandan/screwpine jelly on the other hand is about simplicity. Only 4 ingredients, and its so sensational because I'm assuming we all love pumpkin (Pumpkin Salted Fish Curry). Also, a sugarless version. Pumpkin is sweet enough, so what's the need for more sugar? I'm fine with pumpkin's natural sweetness, of course, you want to add sugar, go ahead. Who am I decide on how much of sugar you should consume? Not my business, my business however is to share ideas on what sort of dessert you can make. Pumpkin Pandan Jelly I think will be sincerely loved. Love all of you too. Take care.

30g agar-agar strips/seaweed
1/2 pumpkin (about 500g) -remove skin and seeds, simmer with some water and mashed.
5-6 pandan leaves (knotted)
Sugar (if  needed) 

Combine 1/2 liter water, seaweed and pandan leaves in a pot. 
Simmer to heat through and to dissolve seaweed.
Strained the mixture and pour back into the pot.
Let it cool down slightly and stir in mashed pumpkin.
Taste for sugar and if needed, add and stir.
Thereafter pour into a mould.
Let it harden and cut into pieces.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
