In a heat resistant container, add water and mix in the gelatin power. Heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds to dissolve it.
In a pot, before heating it up, add the milk, Chinese apricot kernel flour, sugar and egg, and mix well (this is what I used this time) While bringing the heat up to a simmer, stir constantly to make sure that it all melts and mixes well.
While adding the gelatin water mix from Step 1 into Step 2, stir well. Next get a tea strainer, or something of the like, and pour it all through the strainer into a bowl. Then as is, put it in the refrigerator (If's it's not summer, then room temp is just fine.) for about 4 hours until it chills and it's complete.
If you're giving this as a present or as a souvenir, then you can make it in paper cups.
This is the before picture for the top picture. It's soft, so rather than use a gelatin mold, it should be made in a bowl.
Story Behind this Recipe
I had some almond tofu in Chinatown.... I couldn't replicate it... so I added and egg to the recipe. The result was that it came out different from what I intended to make, but it's extremely delicious! It was very popular with my family!
In Step 2, Make sure that before heating it up, the Chinese apricot kernel flour is mixed well after adding it to the mixture. (Otherwise it will not mix well.) Make sure while you are mixing it that you do not make it boil. If you are not careful, it will burn, so stir it on a low heat setting when dissolving the powder with a spatula or something similar. Also pay close attention to the bottom.
