Spiced Lemon Curd

Ingredients to make Spiced Lemon Curd

  • Fresh lemon juice- 120 ml
  • eggs (large)- 3
  • sugar- 85 grams ( 100 grams if you want it sweeter)
  • Unsalted butter- 80 grams
  • cardamom/elaichi powder- 1 tsp
  • Freshly grated ginger- 3/4 tsp

How to make Spiced Lemon Curd

  1. Place a mesh strainer over a bowl and keep it aside. Cut the butter into cubes.
  2. Add lemon juice, sugar, eggs, cardamom powder and ginger in a saucepan. Whisk it all together, and then add the butter.
  3. Put the pan on the stove over low heat, whisking constantly. Once the butter melts, you can increase the heat to medium or if you're unsure continue cooking on low.
  4. Cook the mixture, whisking constantly until it becomes thick, it will take some time but keep whisking.
  5. Once it has reached the desired thickness (it will thicken slightly more once it cools) take it off the heat and immediately pour it into the bowl lined with a strainer.
  6. Press it through the strainer and cover with a cling wrap. Make sure the cling is touching the surface of the curd so it doesn't form a skin. Store in a refrigerator.

My Tip:

Omit the cardamom and ginger for a plain lemon curd. Decrease the quantity of ginger and cardamom for a more subtle flavour. Cover the lemon curd and store in the refrigerator. Will keep for up to a week.
