3:Now, let’s make the layers. You need to firm-up the layers one at a time. The order of the layers should be – 1. Mattcha 2. Plain 3. Pink. First pour in the mattcha layer and firm-up this layer by leaving it in the frig for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Next, pour in the plain-colored layer and put this in the frig. In the same way pour in the pink layer.

☆Be careful not to pour the next layer on top of the previous layer too early. If you do, the layers will mix together and a well-defined 3-layer pudding will not be possible.

4:Let’s make the shiratamas while firming process of the milk pudding is proceeding. Put a piece of silken layer inside a bag of shiratama powder. (water is not necessary)


☆The shiratams you will make will not get hard since water is not used.
