  1. Mix corn flour,sugar,water and food colour in a large microwavable bowl, without any lumps.
  2. Microwave in high for 6 minutes. After 4 minutes in between, mix once.
  3. Again microwave for 6 minutes, stirring in between after every 2 minutes of interval.

  It's just like jelly..its vry tender and melts in ur mouth..so Handle with Care. :D

Note by Chef(Rak's)

  •     Stirring in between as mentioned is very important to ensure even cooking.
  •     Do not reduce the sugar amount,as it will change the glossy look too and end up in porridge ;)
  •     The whole process is made in microwave high power.
  •     According to oven the cooking time varies plus or minus 2-3 minutes.
  •     Consume within one or two days. Refrigeration changes the texture so it is not recommended.
