“Hinamatsuri” is a festival in Japan which is held on the 3rd of March to wish for the health and happiness of a girl child and each house displays a set of Hina Dolls on the 3rd March.
In this article, I will introduce to you how to make “KITTY Chan’s 3-layered milk pudding and a tofu shiratama (white ball) that does not get hard.
Milk – 400cc
Sugar – 6 table spoons
Gelatin – 10g (this amount is needed to make a firm pudding)
Shiratam powder – 1 bag
Silken tofu – one piece
Matcha – moderate amount
Color powder (red) – moderate amount
Additional ingredients to your liking
①Add sugar to the milk and heat it until the sugar melts.
②Soak gelatin in water (1 table spoon).
③Add ① to ② and heat it.
④Separate ③ into 3 bowls.
⑤Add color to two of ④. Make one green by adding matcha and make the other pink by adding pick coloring.
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.
①Color some of the shiratamas red using color powder.
②Cutout the white shiratamas using KITTY Chan’s cutout.
③Decorate the ribbon using the red shiratama powder
④ Put the shiratamas on top of a cooking sheet and boil them.
6：Draw a face using a chocolate pen after the surfaces of the shiratamas are dried.
7：Top the milk pudding with fresh cream and sprinkle mattcha powder on top of it. Decorate with strawberries and KITTY Chan’s shiratama and any other toppings that you like.
☆This time, I used the cutout of cherry blossom dough.
