Lime Cream With Custard Apple Sauce

Indian Cooking Recipe : Lime Cream With Custard Apple Sauce

Ingredients :
225 ml milk
200 ml cream
3 egg yolks
3 tbsp castor sugar
3 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp whipped cream
1 tbsp powdered gelatine
Rind of 1 lime

For the custard apple sauce :
8 custard apples
300 ml cooled sugar syrup
Rose petals and leaves for garnishing

Method :
Boil together milk, cream and lime rind.
In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks with sugar until light and fluffy.
Pour milk/cream mixture into it, stirring constantly to ensure that the eggs do not become scrambled.
Return mixture to saucepan, stirring until thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.
Do not boil. Stain custard through a fine sieve and set aside.
Dissolve gelatine in lime juice and add to the custard.
Place mixture in freezer and every few minutes, stir well to break up any ice particles that have begun to form.
When the mixture thickens slightly, gently fold in whipped cream.
Divide among six well-greased small moulds; cover and set in refrigerator.

To prepare the custard apple sauce :
Separate the pulp from the seeds and mix with sugar syrup.
Liquidize at low speed for a few minutes.
To serve, turn out moulds on to six chilled plates.
Surrounds with sauce and garnish with the fresh rose petals and leaves, if desired.
