Love by young and old alike, jelly is such an easy dessert to make. Fill them with fresh fruits to encourage your kids to eat healthy and at the same time enjoy this healthy dessert. Using diced fresh water chestnut or else you could use other available fruit for making this dessert which is not very sweet yet so easy to prepare.


1 pack (12g) agar2 powder
3 cups water
1 cup evaporated milk
250g sugar
3/4 cup water chestnut peel and dice
raisin and cherry for decoration


1. Dissolve agar2 with 3 cups of water, add sugar and bring to boil over low heat.

2. Add diced water chestnut and evaporated milk, stir until boiling. Remove from fire.

3. Wet the mould with water then place raisin and cherry.

4. Pour the pudding on top of the dried fruit, allow to cool.

5. Refrigerate before serving.
