Two Layer Coconut Jelly

We just had our gathering (with my hubby closed friends) and I prepared some sweet desserts for them. Coconut Jelly is one of them. Pretty easy to made, however my arms were really tried as continuous stirring (for about 1hr++) is required to make it. I've added some green coloring in order to make it more presentable as I find pure clear/ white color is too pale and not so attractive.

The thicker layer is the coconut layer. I didn't pour one layer after another to get this effect and coconut milk was added while boiling for jelly. It became 2 layers by itself after cool down which I believe it is due to the weight difference between Coconut layer vs Jelly layer.

Here the recipe,
  • 1 packet of Pagoda Jelly stick
  • 1.6L of water
  • 280g of sugar
  • 1.5 tsp of salt
  • 400ml coconut mill
  1. Bring the water to boil in a pot.
  2. Add in jelly stick, sugar and salt. Let the jelly be dissolved in the water.
  3. Add in coconut mill and a few drops of green coloring.
  4. Boil until a very (very) thin layer of jelly start to stick to the wooden spoon.
  5. Pour it into cup/mould with desire pattern. Leave it to cool and ready to serve.
