You can also customize the thickness of layers as per your preference. The specific ingredient agar agar, used in this recipe, is available in whole foods market.

  2. Hello mam this dish was really yummy thank you for the recipe I tried this dish but my white choclate was not set properly and my orange jelly was tastying bit bitter please help me out to know where I was mistaken
    Plz do reply I m eagerly waiting for ur reply

    1. Thank you for trying and posting back. Quantity of agar-agar/gelatin, inappropriate consistency of the mixture or less time in fridge might cause chocolate to not set properly. Did you use readymade orange juice or the fresh orange juice? Quantity of sugar may need to be adjusted based on how sweet the oranges are.
