Tau Huay ( Almond tofu dessert)豆腐花

Tau huay is one of my daughters favourite dessert. It can be easily found in Singapore.Traditionally  Gypsum powder or shi gao is added into it.  Gypsum has been having some bad rep for being the cause of kidney stones.
By making it yourself, you can decided what ingredients you wanna put it. I use agar-agar as a setting agent.
Yield 8 small cups

Ingredients :
100 g dry soyabean, soak overnight, take out the thin skin.
50 g almond
1 litre of water
120 g sugar, if you like sweeter you may add up to 150 g
2 g  agar2 powder, white colour. I use 'swallow globe' brand

1. pour into a blender soaked soyabean, almond and water. Puree over high speed for 3-5 minutes.

2. Using a muslin cloth ,strain the puree  into a pan.
3. add sugar and agar-agar, bring to the boil, stir occasionally.

4. let it cool for 10 minutes, in the meantime, spoon out any bubble or skin that might appeal.
5. slowly lower to the serving bowl. Leave it for 10 minutes. Put into the refrigerator for 1 hour. Ready to serve cold
