Koshian Agar-Agar

What is this? Oh, I added Koshian (Japanese Red Bean Paste or Azuki Bean Paste) to the Agar-agar. In fact I bought this Koshian for making matcha mochi but still having got into the mood of doing it. Back to this agar-agar, it is real simple. Just that, I need to give a stir prior to the mixture been solidify so that the koshian does not settle on the bottom.
Preparation: 2 mins, Cooking time: 5 mins

Ingredients (Makes 24)
° 12g agar-agar powder
° 1.5 litre water
° 250g Koshian, or to taste

1. Dissolve agar-agar powder in 1500ml of water in a pot and bring to a boil.
2. Remove pot from heat and leave to cool, stir in koshian and mix well.
3. Pour into the container. Give it a last stir prior to refrigerating until chilled.
4. Cut and serve chilled.

Hi oliveoil,

Thank you for pointing out my typo error again. I missed out 1 again, sorry.

I corrected it now.

The Koshian is sweet, so, I didn't add any sugar nor soymilk.

If you like to add soymilk, just deducted the amount of soymilk from the amount of water and I guess add it after it has boiled.

Thank you very much.

Cheers :)
