草莓燕菜(Strawberry Jelly)

本来今天约了哥哥一家来吃饭,
因此不打算做情人节有关的甜品.

At first, having invited my brother's family over for dinner,
I didn't think that I'd have time to make any Valentine's special cuisine.
 






 可是忙里行间,收音机不断传来节目主持人的提点,
今天是每隔19年才难得遇上的东西方情人节。
这让人听起来好像很珍贵的。
 Yet the voice of the radio deejay drifted to my ears, reminding me that today is a rare occurrence that happens only once in 19 years:
the meeting of the Western and Chinese Valentine's.
For me, it is a special day!




想想下一回的东西方情人节,也不知自己还否存在,
本来有无也不碍事,
但能够和心爱的家人一起欢度这么有意义的佳节,
毕竟也是好事一桩。
所以马上动动脑筋,东翻西找的,就做出这应景的情人节甜点。

To be able to celebrate this special and meaningful double Valentine's with my beloved family is indeed something to rejoice.
And thus, after considerable effort, a valentine's special dessert is born! 



白色部分:
燕菜粉 ~ 12.5g (半包) 
糖 ~ 200g 
盐 ~ 少许 
水 ~ 900ml 
班兰叶 ~ 2片 
浓椰浆 ~ 350ml
草莓部分:
燕菜粉 ~ 12.5g (半包) 
草莓酱 ~ 250g 
白糖 ~ 50g
水 ~ 900ml 

做法: 
1。分别用两个锅。 
2。白色的部分除了浓椰浆,全部放入锅内用小火煮沸,然后才加入椰浆,搅匀就要熄火。
(椰浆不可以煮太久,不然会出油,弄出来的白色燕菜会出现两层-椰油会在上层) 
3。草莓的部分也一样煮至沸,然后搅拌均匀。 
4。在一个30cm X 25cm 的长盘里倒入一层白色(约450ml)的白燕菜。 
5。等到稍微凝固时,慢慢从盘边倒入同等分量(约450ml)的草莓燕菜。
6。放入冰箱冷藏即可。

小贴士: 
1。可以把盘子浸放在加了冰块的冷水里,让燕菜更快凝固。
2。在倒入另一层燕菜时,如直接倒入可能会弄破下一层的燕菜,4用一把汤匙放靠近稍微凝固的燕菜上(只是靠近不是放在燕菜上面哦)然后把杯里的燕菜水轻轻地倒在汤匙上,让它慢慢流入稍微凝固的燕菜上。
3。间中每隔5分钟都稍微用汤匙搅拌在锅里还剩下的燕菜水,以防锅里的燕菜凝固。
4。 两种不同颜色的分量最好要量一样等分量,做出来的燕菜才好看。 


White layer:
Agar-agar powder ~ 12.5g (1/2 packet)
White sugar ~ 200g 
salt ~ a pinch
water ~ 900ml 
Pandan leaves ~ 2pcs
Coconut milk ~ 350ml

Strawberry layer:
Agar-agar powder ~ 12.5g (1/2 packet)
Strawberry jam ~ 250g 
White sugar ~ 50g
Water ~ 900ml 

Method: 
1。Use two different pots.
2。To make the white layer, first mix everything except the coconut milk in a pot. Simmer over low heat until it begins to boil, then add in the coconut milk and mix well before turning off the flame.
 (it is not advisable to cook the coconut milk for long as it will turn the mixture oily, causing the resulting white layer to have a layer of oil above it)
3。Prepare the strawberry layer similarly.
4。Prepare a 30cm X 25cm container. Pour in a layer of white jelly mixture (about 450ml).
5。When the white jelly is nearly solid, gently pour in the same amount of strawberry jelly (about 450ml). Pour it in on the side of the container to avoid breaking the white jelly layer.
6。Continue adding the layers until finished. Place in the fridge to solidify completely.

Tips: 
1。Place the container in a tray of cold water so that the jelly solidifies faster.
2。When pouring the next jelly layer, avoid pouring directly onto the semi-solid jelly to prevent damaging it. Instead, place a spoon above the jelly (remember not to touch the jelly) before gently pouring the jelly mixture onto the back of the spoon, allowing it to flow gently onto the semi-solid jelly layer.
3。Remember to stir the jelly mixtures in the pot once in awhile (about every 5 minutes) to prevent it from turning solid.
4。 Make sure the amount of jelly used in each layer is the same so that the end result would look good.
