    1. Whisk the cream in a bowl till soft peaks form and keep aside.
    2. Combine the agar-agar and water in a pan and melt over a slow flame till it is smooth.
    3. In a bowl, mix together the lemon rind, lemon juice, vanilla essence, condensed milk and colour and mix well.
    4. Slowly add the warm agar agar solution, mixing well so that it does not form lumps.
