Orange Jelly Recipe - Orange Jelly using Agar Agar

Orange Jelly Recipe
This Orange Jelly is a very easy dessert that you can make in few minutes and it will never fail to please a crowd.I was first bowled out by the idea of using orange cups for setting the jellies, it was such a treat to the eyes.

When I made this Orange Jelly, I shared it with my neighbor and they too loved it.Mittu loves any jelly so I prefer making them at home,not that I don't get it from outside but try the most to avoid jellies from shops.Agar agar does magic to jellies, it sets so well even in room temperature, even beginners can use it.

My Notes:

  • Agar Agar sets beautifully in room temperature itself.But if you want you can refrigerate it.
  • You can even set it in individual cups and serve it as such.
  • I used Nilgiris brand china grass.
  • Adjust sugar according to the orange sweetness.
  • Make sure agar agar is dissolved completely.
  • Be quick after agar agar mixture is poured,whisk it well then immediately pour to set it.
  • If you feel agar agar has impurities then strain and add orange juice.I didn't have need here so didn't strain.
  • You can use any flavour following this method.You can even add fruit purees.
