Green Jelly

I love jellies, i never thought making jellies at home might be this much easier, with simple ingredients we can get jellies at home itself, the most important ingredient to prepare these jellies is Agar agar known as china grass, this is a vegetable subsitute of gelatin papers n this is an algae, can get very easily in Chinese we go...

1cup Water
1/2 cup Sugar
2 tsp Cardamom powder
1/2tsp Green colour r any other food colours
1/4 cup Agar agar

Heat water in a heavy bottomed pan, once they starts boil add the finely chopped agar agar pieces to the boiling water, once they starts boiling n get dissolved put the stove in simmer n add sugar, food colour( i used green food colour) as well as cardamom powder, stir them continously until the sugar gets well dissolved, take a icecube tray n pour with a tablespoon of green syrup, finish the green syrup..n keep them in fridge for 1 hour...

Take out of the icecube tray the jellies, with a help of a spoon, have them as desserts... relishing desserts n kids will love this jellies...can store them in fridge for 4 to 5 days...

Can also add fried chopped any nuts to the jellies too...its completely optional...

Can also use any type of essences to give flavour to this jellies, as i didnt have any essence i did with cardamom powder...
