I have written about Jelly in previous posting.
This time a different kind of Jelly that sold at the market and hawkers in Jakarta. The shape not only in square or circle but also in animal shapes such as crab, fish, turtle and alphabets too. The Jelly more chewy than regular jelly that we found at the supermarket in the state. Sold in the morning market or supermarket inside the freezer isle.
You can prepare it at home & serve with ice water & syrup or you can get it ready to eat at the Hawkers. Jelly that sold at the Hawkers are in different kind of shapes & colors ( orange, white, yellow, green & pink). You just have to choose from different types of Jelly in big glass jars just like the big Masson jar. They will scoop it for you and serve with ice, syrup and some other pudding such as almond pudding and Biji Selasih ( Basil seed).
Biji Selasih looks like little black seeds used in local drinks usually in syrup drinks. During the fasting month (bulan puasa) some families will prepare syrup drinks with Selasih or Basil seeds in them.
Jelly with syrup & Selasih is nice & refreshing against the hot Summer days.
