For the Fruit Layer
  • 2 cups Water
  • 2 tsp Agar Agar powder
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 cups chopped fruit pieces (mangoes, kiwis, pineapples, grapes, lychee, blueberries etc)
Milk Layer
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1/4 cup Yogurt
  • 1 tsp Agar Agar
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
Rose Milk Layer
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 3 tbsp Rose water
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • Edible colour
For the Fruit Layer
  1. In a saucepan, add agar agar powder to cold water. Switch on the gas. Keep on stirring until the agar agar dissolves (refer notes). 

  2. Bring it to a boil. To check whether the agar agar is completely dissolved; dip the spoon into the syrup take it out and look closely to find any specs on the spoon. No specks means the powder is dissolved and you are good to go. If there is still some specks then simmer the water for a minute more.

  3. Take it off from the flame. Add sugar and stir to dissolve.

  4. Pour a ladle full of this syrup onto your cake pan. Arrange 1 cup of fruits in a way that you get a good selection of each fruit in the piece that you cut and serve later on.

  5. Pour some more water and arrange the remaining cup of water. Repeat until all the fruits and syrup are used up. (refer notes). Allow the mixture to set at room temperature.

For the Milk Layer
  1. Give the saucepan a rinse and use it for the next layer. Add in milk, water and agar agar powder. Switch on the gas. Stir continuously until the powder dissolves and the milk boils.

  2. Once boiled do the spoon test to see if agar agar is dissolved completely by lifting up the spoon and looking for specks.

  3. Switch off the gas and sugar and yogurt and stir to dissolve. (I know what you are thinking the milk might split right don't worry it will come well at the end)

  4. Check whether the first layer is partially set by touching it gently with your fingers. Then with the help of back of your spoon slowly and gently pour the milk layer on top. (Check the video if you like.)

  5. Allow this to set too at room temperature.

For the Rose Milk Layer
  1. In the same saucepan, add agar agar to milk and water mixture. Switch on the gas and repeat the usual process. That is bring it to a boil by stirring continuously. Look for specks and remove from the flame.

  2. Add sugar, rose water and edible colour and stir to dissolve. Check whether the milk layer is set by gently touching it. Pour this rose milk layer on top using the back of your spoon. Allow this to set too.

For unmolding the cake
  1. Run a off-set spatula around the sides of the cake tin taking care not to cut through the actual cake layers or disturb the fruits.

  2. Insert a toothpick on 4 sides of the cake. (Refer the video)

  3. Place a plate upside down and invert the cake pan. Gently tap the pan to release the fruit cake and voila your delicious three layered dessert is ready.
