Black Sesame Pudding

Another Recipe from "Okashi Treats" by keiko ishida. If you love black sesame paste dessert, you'd love this sweet pudding. I bought this black sesame paste specially for the black sesame chiffon cake recipe in this book. I made it successfully but did not feel like posting because the pictures taken of it was awful. *lol* I was lucky to have found this in an organic store around my neighbourhood where I live. I couldn't find black sesame paste anywhere else.
The paste are rather sticky and in big clumps. I had to wear a glove to separate the clumps!

My parents and dd doesn't seem to appreciate something more extraordinary. *lol* I lke it anyway. It has the texture of a red bean pudding that I had in a Chinese Dim Sum restaurant.
Have a go at it if you like. ;)

300g fresh whole milk
50g store-bought black sesame paste
35g castor sugar
5g gelatine sheets, soak in ice water to soften
40g whipping cream
black sugar, chopped into bits for topping

Combine milk, sesame paste and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
Add softened gelatine and whipping cream. Mix well. Pour mixture into the prepared cups and chill in the refeigerator until set.
Serve jelly topped with black sugar bits. Combine milk, sesame paste and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.

AiMei: I like the taste of black sesame also, but it's hard to find black sesame paste here. I only managed to get black sesame powder. I tried black sesame swiss roll before, and it turned out great :)

oh thats the organic black sesame paste i got too! but its so ex, like $7+ or $8 rite? phoon huat used to sell at just $3 a big jar but too bad they don't carry anymore. another place to buy is meidi-ya at liang court but that one is even more ex, like $10 or so coz its direct import from japan. its easy to find white sesame paste though. i'm trying to ask yuehwa chinese goods store to bring in the black one coz its a pity coz they hv all the chinese condiments but no black sesame paste!

Oh i bought it for $6.10, they were offering it for a discount. Yeah meidi-ya has all the jap condiments and flour. I found a soy bean flour kinako there and taste great! i used it to make chiffon cake. ;)
