班兰椰浆菜燕 Pandan Coconut Agar Agar

This is actually a simple recipe which can be made with ease by using store bought packet coconut milk and pandan extract. Today I decided to be a little bit adventurous by making this yummy dessert by preparing the main ingredient from scratch while also giving me the opportunity to compare the taste difference.

Based on the satisfactory outcome, I concluded that this method using fresh coconut milk taste better  as the agar agar reminded me of the ones i had during my childhood days.
