For White Layer:

For Red Layer:

  • ½ tbsp agar powder
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp red food color

White Layer:

  • In a small bowl, mix 1 tbsp agar powder with ¼ cup of water. Ensure the agar powder is well dissolved. Set this mixture aside.
  • In a saucepan, combine 3 cups (750ml) of liquid milk, ½ cup of sugar, and ¼ tsp of vanilla extract.
  • Heat the milk mixture over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Stir continuously to dissolve the sugar.
  • Once boiling, pour in the prepared agar mixture. Continue stirring to ensure the agar dissolves completely in the milk. This step helps in setting the white layer.
  • Once the agar is fully dissolved, remove the mixture from heat.
  • Pour the white agar-milk mixture into a heat-proof glass mold, spreading it evenly. Allow it to cool down a bit.
  • Place the mold in the fridge and let it set for approximately 30 minutes.

Red Layer:

  • In another small bowl, mix ½ tbsp agar powder with ¼ cup of water. Ensure the agar powder is well dissolved. Set this mixture aside.
  • In a separate saucepan, combine 2 cups (500ml) of water, ½ cup of sugar, and ½ tsp of lemon juice.
  • Heat the water mixture over medium heat, stirring continuously until the sugar completely dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil.
  • Add ¼ tsp of red food color to the boiling mixture and stir well.
  • Pour in the prepared agar mixture and continue stirring until the agar is fully dissolved.
  • To create the layered effect, carefully pull up the partially set white layer from the fridge.
  • Pour the red agar mixture over the white layer, ensuring it covers all sides and forms a smooth surface.
  • Allow the layered mixture to cool down a bit at room temperature, then place it back in the fridge for an additional 30 minutes to set completely.

Final Steps:

  • Once both layers are set, remove the glass mold from the fridge.
  • Carefully cut the Agar Milk Pudding into desired pieces.
  • Serve the Agar Milk Pudding chilled, showcasing the beautiful contrast between the white and red layers.
