Nata De Coco with Sterculia and Agar Agar Dessert

Dried Sterculia Seeds / Soaked Sterculia Seeds in water

You see, with a minor change of the one of the ingredients, you can create a different treats! I replaced soymilk with Nata De Coco! And my boy loves this and asked for more. And it looks colourful and attractive to little ones. Nata De Coco is a high-fibre, low-calories and cholesterol-free dessert. Again, you can make the agar agar yourself or you just get them from the Fruit Stall in the food court.
Preparation: 5 mins, standing time 30 mins

Ingredients (serves 2)
° 2 sterculia seeds/mollow nuts, lightly bruised
° 50g-75g agar agar (jelly), cubed
° 360g Nata De Coco

1. Soak sterculia seeds in ample water for 20-30 minutes until the flesh has expanded into a loose, jelly like mass. Peel off and discard the skin. Drain well.
2. Mix all the ingredients in a jar and pour into individual glasses.
3. Chilled or serve with ice.

If you are in Singapore and Malaysia, it is quite easy to get it and the price is reasonable. Amost all Supermarket, Hypermart sell this.

Thanks, so that is refering to coconut jelly cubes.
But what did you use as the beverage, just plain cold water?

Oh :) The Nata De Coco that I got come with cubes and syrup, so I didn't add any plain water. So, I should say that I add Seterculia and Agar Agar to it.

Cheers :)

Hi Crystal,
Do we need to boil the kembang-semangkuk? I so happen to have several seeds!

Hi Emily

Usually, I crack them, soak in water first to remove the shells and skin. Then, add to boil Ching Tng or other dessert.

For this, i didn't, i just add them in. If you want to boil them, yes.

cheers :)
