Mango Jelly Mooncake.......just in time........


Mango jelly mooncake...................................

i had wanted to make this mango jelly mooncake this mid autumn festival and i bought a packet of mango from the supermarket sometime last week. Since then i was so sick from my flu virus i could not do or cook anything. But today i push myself to make it even though i am still not fully recovered because the packet of mango will not keep for long and also because tomorrow is the mooncake festival and i would not miss my chance of trying out this jelly mooncake!(or else i have to wait until next year)

For mango filling:(makes 9-10 rounds)

1 cup water
60 gm sugar
2 tsp agar-agar powder
1 tbsp condensed milk
60 gm mango puree
40 gm fresh mango cut into small cubes


white jelly skin:(makes 9-10 rounds)

3 1/2 cups water
140 gm sugar
4 pandan leaves knotted
5 tsp agar-agar powder
2 tbsp condensed milk
1/2 cup thick coconut milk

For the filling i boiled together water,sugar and jelly powder. Once mixture start to boil , turn off heat and add in condensed milk,mango puree, and mango cubes. Stir and pour into tart moulds to set.

Prepared mango fillings......................................................................

mango jelly mooncake set in plastic mould...........................................

For the white skin i boiled together the first four ingredients. Then lower heat and add condensed milk and coconut milk. Stir continuosly til mixture start to bubble and turn off heat. Pour a 1/2 cm layer of jelly skin mixture into round jelly mooncake mould. Let it cool til 3/4 set. Then place a prepared mango filling in the centre of the mould. Top up with the jelly skin mixture and let it set completely before chilling in the fridge. Unmould mango jelly mooncake and keep refrigerated til ready to serve.
