Making douhua

Hi!
I am trying to recreate a wonderful dessert I had recently in Taiwan - Douhua. I see a recipe here with a slightly different name:Dofu Hua. I have magnesium chloride (Nigari), but I do not have terra alba, or gypsum.

Can I substitute the nigari for the gypsum? Should I change the amount needed? I can experiment, but would appreciate your advice!

Yes, it is twice as strong, so use half as much.
