Get a closer look
Recipe :( adapted from Tropical Dessert - a Periplus mini cookbook by Devagi Sanmugam )
- 1 1/2 tsp green tea powder
- 60ml warm water
- 500ml low fat milk
- 3 egg yolks
- 200g sugar ( i used only 120g as I prefer it not too sweet )
- 1 tbsp cornflour
- 1 1/2 tbsp gelatine mixed with 4 tbsp hot water until dissolved
- 375ml heavy whipping cream
Mix the green tea powder with the warm water until the green liquid is lump free .
Slowly bring the milk to a boil over low heat in a pan . Immediately remove from heat and combine with the green tea liquid . Stir well and set aside .
Cream the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl with a wooden spoon . Add the cornflour and mix well . Add the green tea and whisk well . Add the gelatine mixture & whisk thoroughly to form a smooth mixture .
Return the mixture to the pan and heat gently over low heat , stirring constantly until the custard thickens . Strain the mixture through a fine strainer to remove any lumps , into a clean dry bowl . Set aside to cool . Then add the whipping cream and mix well .
Portion the mixture into individual serving bowl . Chill in the refrigerator until it sets .
