    Jasmine Tea & Lychee Agar Jelly

    I used to use Gelatine Powder to make this jelly, but lately I prefer Agar Agar Powder.

Agar Agar Powder …

I often make it using Vegetarian Gelling Powder as Kanten is not easy to find. White Bean Paste and Chestnut Paste can be used instead of Azuki Paste. To make this Chestnut Agar Jelly, I use …
