Agar-agar or seaweed jelly also gives its name to a drink served in Burma that is so popular it is sold on every street corner.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
palm sugar or slab sugar
rose concentrate
540g grass jelly, thinly sliced
iced water
crushed ice

Method

  1. Make a syrup from the sugar and water. Allow to cool, then add the rose concentrate to flavour. Put a tablespoon of the grass jelly into each glass. Add a couple of spoonfuls of the syrup, then fill up with iced water and crushed ice. Stir well and serve. Another version of this uses coconut milk instead of water, and is also delicious and cooling on a hot day.

Note

  • Chopped agar-agar jelly can be used in place of tinned grass jelly if preferred.
