Hi, I attempted to this recipe. I encounter some problem as yam mixture very sticky after add in agar agar powder, how do I know is dissolves? end up my yam filling not set a bit too soft.
Thank you for you advice.

Soh...oops think there is typo error in the amt of the yam, should be 120gm, so sorry. After mixing with water is not sticky, just a thick paste.

Hi how come my filling is so soft ? Can I put in the freezer?

Anonymous....if u got the proportion right it should be firm enough after chilling. it is OK to freeze slightly then.
