  7. To make the jelly use a small saucepan and add water, passion fruit pulp and honey and bring it to the boil. Add agar agar powder and let it simmer for 3 minutes, stirring continuously, until the agar is dissolved. Strain mixture to remove the passion fruit seeds and keep them aside for decorating.
  8. Allow your jelly to cool to room temperature before pouring it over the filling. Top with some passion fruit seeds.
