Koi Fish Jelly 年年有余 ~ CNY 2011

Chinese New Year is all about auspicious symbols, especially when it comes to food you eat and the gifts you present to friends and family. After making so many types of cookies like Pineapple Tarts, Almond Cookies, Butter Cookies, Cornflake Cookies..... I also made Koi fish from agar agar powder.
Koi fish symbolize surpluses ~ ~"年年有余“ (nian nian you yu) means having more enough for the coming year.

  Koi fishes appear to be extremely lively and their cheerful posture along with their slanting tail brings in bundles of money and good luck.

650ml Water
100g Sugar
8g Agar agar powder
2 Pandan leaves
2 Fish molds (bought from Sunlik)
12 Black currants or raisins
