  • cups water
  • ½ tbsp agar agar powder
  • 3-4 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 cups mixed fruits any of your choice


  • First of all, wash the fruit. Cut any larger fruits into bite size pieces.
  • Add water to a saucepan.
  • Allow the water to heat up a bit. Add sugar.
  • Stir the water till the sugar melts.
  • When the water is hot, but not boiling, add agar agar powder.
  • Keep heating the water till the agar agar dissolves completely.
  • Switch off the heat.
  • Take 4 small moulds or a bowl or cake tin.
  • Using a ladle gently pour little of the agar agar liquid. Allow it to set a bit. This will take about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the fruits making sure that you place all of them separately, alternating the different colours if possible.
  • Using the ladle, pour more of the agar agar liquid over the fruits.
  • Allow the jelly to cool a bit.
  • If you find any fruit pieces peaking out f the jelly, gently push it down using a skewer.
  • Cover with cling film and allow it to set in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • You can either set in individual portions or in one bowl or tin or tray.
  • Unmold the larger one by running a knife around the edges. Cover the tin/tray with a dish, plate chopping board. Turn it over and the jelly comes off easily.
  • You can unmold the smaller ones if you want to. I prefer serving them as it is.


  • Use any seasonal fruit of your choice.
  • Adjust the amount of sugar according to your taste.
  • Adding a thin layer of the agar agar liquid ensures that the fruit doesn't stick to the mold.
  • Allow the agar agar liquid to cool a bit before adding to the layered fruit. Otherwise it will make the fruit mushy.
  • Use fresh coconut water instead of normal tap water. Tastes really good.
