ABOUT Spiced Lemon Curd RECIPE

A twist on the classic lemon curd, this one has cardamom and ginger. The warmth of the spices pair perfectly with the strong tart lemon flavour. Omit the spices if you want a plain lemon curd.

Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. Fresh lemon juice- 120 ml
  2. eggs (large)- 3
  3. Sugar- 85 grams ( 100 grams if you want it sweeter)
  4. Unsalted butter- 80 grams
  5. Cardamom/elaichi powder- 1 tsp
  6. Freshly grated ginger- 3/4 tsp


  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.
