STEAMED GINGER PUDDING




STEAMED GINGER PUDDING
Steamed Ginger Pudding is a legacy of the British Raj. It always made up the finale of a delicious dinner menu combination with Mulligatawny Soup, Roast Lamb and Roasted Vegetables during Colonial Times. There’s nothing better or heart warming than ending a meal with a slice of Warm Ginger Pudding topped with more jam or Fresh Cream

Ingredients
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened,
3 tablespoons flour 
1 cup soft bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1 teaspoon dry ginger powder
3 tablespoons sugar (use more if you want it sweet)
1 large egg, beaten
¼ cup milk 
4 tablespoons apricot jam or any other jam of your choice

Butter a pudding bowl suitable for steaming.

Stir together flour, baking powder, and ground ginger in a small bowl.
Add the butter, bread crumbs and sugar into the bowl and mix well, Mix in the egg. Add flour mixture and milk and mix until just combined. Spoon the jam into the bottom of the buttered Pudding bowl. Pour the batter on top, then smooth with a spatula. Cover the bowl with a lid and steam the pudding for 30 to 35 minutes till done.

Leave aside to cool for 10 minutes. Run a small knife around edge of bowl then invert the pudding onto a plate.
Serve warm either with more Jam on top or with fresh cream

(Alternately the Ginger Pudding could be baked for 30 minutes at 180 Degrees instead of steaming it)

Many local words were incorporated in their conversations and new names were given for almost everything depending on how they were able to pronounce the vernacular words. One example would be The Tamil and other South Indian word ‘KAI’ meaning ‘vegetable’ which eventually became ‘Coy’ in English. Vegetables such as ‘BANDICOY’ for lady fingers / Okra”’ from the Tamil Word ‘Vendaikai, or the Kannada word ‘Bendaykai, etc, became part and parcel of Anglo-Indian Cuisine

½ kg tender Ladyfinger / Okra / Bandycoy

2 teaspoons mild chillie powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder 
2 medium size tomatoes chopped
1/2 cup coconut paste or coconut milk 
2 tablespoons oil

Wipe the lady’s finger / okras with a dry cloth then cut them into 2 inch pieces. Discard the ends. 
Boil the meat with sufficient water and a little salt till tender. 
Heat oil in a pan and add the onions and fry till golden brown. Add the tomatoes, chillie powder, salt, coriander powder, cumin powder and ginger garlic paste and sauté for a few minutes till the tomatoes turn pulpy and the oil separates from the mixture.
