A Thai jelly made from agar and Bi Tua leaves. The Bi Tua gives the jelly a bubble gum like taste and green colour while the agar gives it a very firm texture.
4-5 Bi Tua Leaves
500 ml Water
5 gms Agar Powder
100 gms Sugar
1. Clean and chop the Bi Tua leaves, put into a blender and blend until smooth. Sieve the mixture through a fine cloth sieve into a pan.
2. Add the agar powder, heat until the agar has fully dissolved, but don't let it boil. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved.
3. Pour straight into molds and leave to cool. Agar sets very quickly and it's better to pout it into molds when hot. You can even pour it into bowls since it is very easy to prise out of any mold.
