  3. Pour mixture into plastic moulds and leave to set. Place in the refrigerator to chill and set firmly. Remove filling from the mould.
  4. To prepare skin: Place water, pandan leaves, sugar, agar-agar powder and salt in a clean pot. Cook over medium low heat until it comes to a boil.
  5. Add coconut milk, whipping cream, and colouring. Stir well, and continue to cook for 1 minute or until mixture is fairly thick. Discard the pandan leaves and remove pot from heat. Mix in the soaked chia seeds.
  6. Spoon a tablespoon of agar-agar mixture into a wet plastic jelly mooncake mould. Set aside for 1 to 2 minutes.
  7. Place a filling in the centre of the mould and add more agar-agar mixture to fill up the mould. Set aside to cool and then place in the refrigerator to chill and set completely.
