Basil seeds jelly nuggets

Jelly has been more of a fantasy than just another confectionery item.. Imagining a home-made jelly was definitely a challenge, though I gave it a shot. Syrupy and spongy, these little jelly nuggets are now falling in fancy dessert range!!

Refreshing Basil seeds jelly....with rose & khus flavours

  • 8 gms agar agar strands
  • 250 ml water plus 3-4 tbsp hot water
  • Sugar to taste
  • 2-3 tbsp rose syrup

  • Cut  agar agar strands into small pieces with the help of kitchen scissors, add into the saucepan and pour hot water over it and soak for 10- 15 minutes till the strands become soft.
