eggless, orange curd
freshly squeezed orange juice
fresh orange zest
- about 20 grams
- 1 tbsp
Prepare a slurry by mixing cornflour with water in a small bowl until it's fully dissolved without lumps. Keep aside.
In a saucepan, add the orange juice, zest and sugar and heat on low flame till sugar is dissolved (about 2-3 minutes).
Add the cornflour slurry to the pan and keep mixing to avoid lumps. The mixture will start to thicken. It takes about 1-2 minutes.
Add the butter and keep mixing till the butter is melted and you've reached your desired consistency. Switch off the flame.
Pour it into a clean bowl and cover it with plastic wrap/cling such that it’s touching the top to avoid skin to form as it cools.
Refrigerate the curd for at least 1 hour before using. The curd will continue to thicken as it cools. The curd can be refrigerated for up to 10 days.
