Notes

Steamed Ginger Milk Pudding

Squeeze extra ginger juice and let it settle. Scoop up the top of juice leaving behind the white powdery sediment at the bottom as it can make the pudding tastes tough.

Choose mature or old gingers for this recipe (not young gingers) as it is the juice from old ginger that contain a starchy content for curding the milk.

Covering the bowls tightly with cling wrap when steaming prevents water from dripping onto the surface of milk mixture. Hence this helps to produce very smooth custard.
