Colorful jelly surprise. A recipe i came across in a food blog. Liked it so much as it looked so colorful and the recipe seemed easy to follow. A treat to the eyes, hands to the mouth, mouth to the tummy, it’s yummy , yummy , yummy . children to adults and every one will love this colourful vibrant dessert . Jelly was one dessert my mom used to make once in a blue moon for me and my brother when we were kids. She used to chop up mixed fruits and mix it with red colored jelly. Mom was a working woman as she used to help dad in his business. So very rarely was she at home or in the kitchen. I used to love it when mom was home and mainly in the kitchen. I guess this was one reason for me wanting to become a house wife. (sounds weird, i know but that’s the fact)in school all my friends and class mates used to talk about becoming doctors, architect’s , so on and so forth. But my mind was stuck to becoming a house-wife . I am happy being one with all the liberty and time spent at my expense of doing things i like most.(cooking, taking care of my family, shopping emptying my hubby’s pockets…)the cereer of motherhood and home making is beyond value and needs.No justification, it’s importance is in-calculated.


jelly - Raspberry flavour + 1 tablespoon gelatine1 packet
Jelly - Orange flavour + 1 tablespoon gelatine1 packet
jelly - ( blue color) mint flavour + 1 tablespoon gelatine1 packet
jelly - Strawberry flavour+ 1 tablespoon gelatine1 packet
Jelly - Lime Flavour + 1 tablespoon gelatine1 packet
China grass ( agar agar )10 grams soaked in 1 cup water
Hot milk1/2 litre
Sweetened Condensed Milk1 can


  1. Set each jelly according to instructions in the packets , but make sure to reduce the amount of liquid (water) in each by 1/4 cups and add the mentioned gelatine along . ( this helps the jelly set faster and harder so it will hold the shape later on)
  2. Stir for at least 2 minutes , until completely dissolved. Pour each jelly into separate small shallow food storage containers .
  3. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.( my red , orange and yellow coloured jelly ‘s crumbled on my first try and I could not use them )
  4. Heat 1/2 litter of milk . once it starts to boil add the soaked China grass and boil till the china grass had dissolved well .
  5. Add condensed milk; mix well. Strain and Cool slightly. Cut the set jelly into cubes.
  6. Mix all the colours and place in a pudding dish( which should either be greased with oil or lined with cling film), but take care not to let them crumble.
  7. Pour milk mixture over cubes. If necessary, stir very gently to distribute gelatin cubes. Refrigerate till firm and set. ( about 2-3 hours)
  8. Cut into small squares or bars and serve cold.
