  1. Dear Rose –
    May I substitute gelatin for the agar or must it be pure agar?

  3. Dear Mathil,
    Thanks for your comments. You can substitute the agar agar powder with kanten or china grass. For this recipe, the texture turns out firm and crunchy so gelatine will not be a good substitute. Best Rgds.
