I saw this dessert some time back and decided to give it a try. Frankly, I never tasted it before and was wondering how does it tasted like. I found the recipe at Leisure Cat and it was fairly easy (I tweak my method a little). The ginger juice is used to coagulate the milk and thus this dessert is smooth, very soft and tasted of ginger (sorta like ginger flavored milk).
8 ounce (220ml) whole milk
1 Tbp. ginger juice
1 tsp. sugar (1 tsp. more for sweeter taste)
1. Prepare ginger juice by zesting the ginger and squeeze out the juice, strained.
2. Microwave the milk for 1 min 25 seconds. Add in sugar and stir to dissolve. Then, take another cup and pour it back and forth for 10 times to let the air in (Indian teh tarik style, but not too high, wondering whether I can omit this step?).
3. Put 1 Tbp. of ginger juice in a bowl, stir well before pouring in the milk from 2. Then, leave it and don't touch the milk for 3 mins. It should be set after that and serve immediately.
Note: Don't let it sit out for too long because the ginger will become too overpowering.
