Looking for a refreshing dessert with an exotic flavour? This ginger pudding doesn’t only taste good but is actually quite healthy as well. Very little sugar and loads of vitalizing ingredients. Not exactly a last minute dessert – but no rocket science either. Next time you are looking for a dessert on a hot summer day – give it a try.


  • 1 stick lemon grass
  • large piece ginger [10g]
  • 2 lime leaves
  • 500ml milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 50 g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon starch
  • 4 leaves gelatin
  • 1 small mango
  • 2 teaspoons black sesame


_ crush lemongrass with the back of a knife

_ peel ginger and cut into small slices

_ heat milk with lemon grass, ginger and the lime leaves

_ bring to a boil

_ take off the heat and set aside to absorb the flavours for 30 minutes

_ soak gelatin leaves in cold water

_ whisk egg yolks with sugar until fluffy

_ mix in the starch

_ strain milk through a sieve and add to the egg mixture

_ combine well and return to a pot

_ bring to a boil [while stirring constantly]

_ as soon as it boils, remove from the heat and stir in the gelatin

_ strain through a sieve into small cups

_ place in the fridge to firm up [about 4 hours]

_ peel mango and get rid of the stone

_ puree mango to get a smooth cream

[if you can’t get your hand on a nicely ripe one, canned mango is fine too – is quite a bit sweeter usually]

_ loosen the ginger pudding around the edges and turn upside-down onto a plate

_ decorate with mango cream and sprinkle with black sesame
