Koi fish jelly

This recipe is from Ann of Anncoo Journal simple ingredients to form these beautiful creations. You may check her recipe in this link
650 ml water
100g sugar I used caster sugar
8 g agar agar
2 pandan leaves 
5 large koi fish mold 
Raisins cut till quarters
A few bottles of colouring - red green n mango colour

Cut the raisins to quarters. Roll them up if you can to form tiny nibs to use as fish eyes.

Boil water, sugar, agar agar powder n pandan leaves together. Keep stirring until water boils using medium heat. Off the heat n stir the agar agar liquid for another 2-3 minutes. 

Put agar agar liquid under double boiler or low heat to prevent agar agar from setting quickly.

Using tweezers, dip the raisin into agar after liquid then place on the fish mold eyes.

Prepare small sauce dishes. Take 2 tsp of agar agar n add a drop of colour n mix with teaspoon. Quickly use the back of teaspoon to apply colour randomly to the fish mold body. If the colour sets , add more hot agar agar liquid to dilute it.

After the coloured liquid sets, pour in the plain agar agar in the fish mold.

Chill agar agar in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours or overnight before removing from the fish mold.

Note : you will need a soup bowl to hold up the fish mold
