Star Fruit Curd [Egg-free]

 

 

I had been on a lookout for a really good egg free lemon curd recipe for a while. So when Akshatha posted it on her blog ‘Flours and Frostings‘ , I knew this was it.

Well I was out of lemons and the star fruits hubby picked up the other day were just too sour to eat.

Now you know how this happened !

With just a couple of changes to Akshatha’s recipe [ since star fruit has a sweet-sour sort of a taste] here’s the yummy creamy ‘Star Fruit Curd’.

You can use it in tarts, as a filling in cakes or to make ‘Star Fruit’ bars similar to lemon bars [that’s my plan provided I don’t end up eating that delicious curd everytime I pass the refrigerator]

 

 

Have fun and let me know if you happen to try this.

Instructions
  1. Star Fruit Juice- You would need about 6-7 medium sized star fruits for this recipe. Slice them roughly and blend in an electric mixer. Pass through a sieve to strain the juice. Use 3/4 cup of the juice for the above recipe.
  2. Mix the juice, sugar and butter in a thick bottomed vessel and bring it to boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  4. In the meantime mix the cornflour and water together until well combined. Set aside.
  5. After simmering for 3-4 minutes add the cornflour paste, stir and continue to simmer.
  6. The mixture would start to thicken. Continue to stir and cook for 3-4 minutes more.
  7. Turn off the heat and transfer the mixture into another bowl.
  8. Mix in the condensed milk and allow to cool for 15-20 minutes. Keep stirring it often so that a 'film' doesn't form on top. Alternatively you can cling wrap it such that the cling film touches the top of the curd.
  9. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or until the Star fruit curd sets.
Recipe Notes
  • You can find Akshatha's eggless lemon curd recipe here.
  • You can definitely adjust the sweetness according to your preference by increasing or reducing the amount of sugar. The star fruits I used were way too sour [like lemons really!] but mostly they have a sweet-tart taste [like kiwis].
