Black Sesame Cream Jelly (revisit) 黑芝麻冻

Hi, you remember my two layers black sesame cream jelly the other day? Today I have the answer for why the Jelly separated into two layers. I have to give thanks to a wonderful lady ... Polly, one of my friend in Qatar, she has shared the tip with me. Polly is the founder of Asian Ladies Coffee Morning (ACM) event, an amazing lady who try to help every newly arrived Asian ladies here to settle down... also she cooks and bakes a lot!! Her creations which I had tried before, a cookies and homemade tofu dishes were yummy!  

To prevent the Jelly separated into two layers, you need to place the jelly mixture into ice water bath after you have boiled the mixture! Keep stirring the mixture until it thicken, the liquid will be still in runny form. You can feel the liquid has thicken from the wooden spatula which used for stirring the jelly mixture. Then, pour the jelly mixture into the glass and keep in fridge until the jelly set. 

Nice smooth jelly texture and pretty black dots around the glass! Very happy, can dance for Mother's Day! I'm linking this post to Little Thumbs Up (May 2014: Milk) hosted by Tze of Awayofmind Bakery House(Me ^.^) 

Today Facetime with my mum who is now still in the hospital, wishing her a Happy Mother's Day, it is so happy for me to see her able to sit up!  Get well soon mum!  

300g fresh whole milk 
50g store bought black sesame paste
35g castor sugar
5g gelatine sheets, soaked in ice water to soften
