Instructions

  1. Pour the water into a pot. Add sugar and agar-agar powder.
  2. Bring the mixture to boil. Stir from time to time to ensure that there are no lumps.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a jelly molder or container. Let it cool a bit before placing it in the fridge to cool further.
  4. Prepare the mangoes: Keep the skin on and cut the sides of each mango vertically from the stone or pit. Discard the pits.
  5. Use a knife to make crosswise and lengthwise cuts in the flesh of each side. Be sure not to cut through the peel.
  6. Remove the flesh using a spoon or a glass. Transfer to a large bowl.
  7. Prepare the other mangoes similarly; then place the mango fruit in the fridge to chill.
  8. When the agar-agar mixture has solidified, cut it into cubes that are approximately the same size as the mangoes.
  9. Add the chilled mango cubes and place the salad back in the fridge to chill before serving.
