White Sesame Pudding with Sesame Paste

White Sesame Pudding with Sesame Paste

It looks really cute if you use mixed seeds (like pine nuts) as a garnish.

Ingredients: 4-5 servings

Milk
400 ml
White sesame paste
4 tablespoons
Soft light brown sugar
45 g
Powdered gelatin
8 g
Mixed seeds (optional)
As needed

Steps

1. Put all ingredients except for the mixed seeds and powdered gelatin into a pot. Whisk well as you heat and dissolve over medium heat. (Do not let it boil!)
2. Turn the heat off when it's slightly bubbly. Add powdered gelatin and dissolve fully. Set aside to cool down, then cool the the pot in a bowl of ice-cold water as you stir thoroughly.
3. When the mixture has thickened, pour into cups and chill in fridge to harden (it only takes 50 minutes if you put in freezer). Top with mixed seeds if you'd like, and serve.
4. The sesame paste and milk will separate into two layers if you don't cool it down in ice-cold water. This is also delicious since the sesame part tastes really rich, almost like kinako (roasted soybean powder) sauce!

Story Behind this Recipe

I had leftover sesame paste, so I dissolved that into milk and hardened it with gelatin to make pudding.
