With Ramadan being just around the corner, have you planned on what to surprise your friends and family this year? Its time to level up your cooking skills in the kitchen, and not to worry cause in today’s blogpost, Ayam Brand has got your back this Ramadan! Other than the month of fasting, it’s also a time to enjoy amazing dishes that you can prepare at home to satisfy cravings. Since health always comes first in my household, it can be tricky to find food that can balance out with our health conditions, and the solution to that is to prepare our own dishes at home!

Using Ayam Brand UHT Trim Coconut Milk
Here is a list of snacks and desserts that you have to try to make at home. These listed here would be considered to be in the easy and quick category, making it perfect for the fasting season! These recipes are also great for those who rarely spend time in the kitchen and even for those who want to flaunt some skills in preparing these dishes. You can easily make any of these recipes without the need for any electrical appliances and also it's lovable by almost anyone! The secret ingredient to all these menus? Coconut milk! 

Who knew that there are so many dishes that you can create with coconut milk? Its no wonder that most of our Malaysian dishes contain coconut milk. I’ve tried making one of the desserts using Santan Ayam Brand and while I was exploring the options, did you know that Ayak Brand offers 3 variants of Santan? Namely, Santan, Santan Trim (45% Less Fat) and Santan Super Light (75% Less Fat). Now that you know the types of Santan that are available, you can get creative in the kitchen without ruining anyone's diet! 

Agar Agar Buah | Fruity Agar

Didn't have many options of fruits at home, so used longan since its one of our favorite fruit!
Since im a huge lover of fruits and jelly, I decided to test my culinary skills in preparing myself the Agar Agar Buah, a pretty popular dessert among the kids during this festive season. Here’s what you need and how it should be prepared: 


2 cups cold water
¼ cup sugar
½ cup longan juice
1¾ tsp agar agar powder 
2 cups small fruit pieces of your choice such as Strawberry, Kiwi, Orange, Blueberries (I used longan)
Coconut Layer
¾ cup Ayam Brand Coconut Milk Superlight
¼ cup water
¾ tsp + ⅛ tsp agar agar powder
3 Tbsp sugar
A pinch of salt
4 inches pandan leaves (optional)


1. In a small pot without heat, add the cold water, longan juice, agar powder, and whisk until there are no more lumps.
2. Once mixed, turn on the heat and bring to a full boil, stirring constantly until agar is completely dissolved. 
3. Add sugar and stir until dissolved, then remove from heat and immediately pour about half of the mixed ingredients into your mold.
4. Add the fruit pieces. 
5. Add the remaining mixture to cover the fruits, leaving about 0.5cm for your coconut layer.  
6. Let this layer sit for 20 minutes or until the top is firm enough to pour on the second layer.

While you wait for the fruit layer to set, make the coconut layer:

7. In a small pot without heat, combined coconut milk, water, agar powder, and stir to dissolve the powder.
8. Add the pandan leaf, if using, then turn on the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until agar-agar is completely dissolved. 
9. Add sugar and a pinch of salt and stir to dissolve. Remove the pandan leaf.
10. Make sure the fruit layer is firm enough and dry, pour in the coconut milk mixture on top with a spoon. 
11. Place in the fridge for an hour(or more) until it is firm before serving.
