Ginger Milk Curds...again!!

I saw FIL bought another type of milk which I haven't tried before...so, here goes...
































Tonight, I made too much ginger juice. So not to waste them I used 20ml instead of 15 ml.
The outcome was quite watery curds...but the taste was still as great!

The texture:

Then I suddenly had a thought: What if I can do it with my Anmum Lacta?? I remembered how I hated ginger during my confinement month...(Now I wondered why I bothered to try with it...I don't plan to have a third confinement...!!)


Here, again I used 20ml of ginger juice to 130ml of Anmum Lacta ( I followed instructions on the box: add 4 scoops milk powder to 200ml water , then I boiled the milk)

It was a total failure, I would say...But I find it weird to see one third of the milk at the bottom became curd, but the top part just remained watery:


The taste of both curds are different due to the milk, but with the ginger...I like both!

But I really am scratching my head over the different results...Did the fat content affect it? Shouldn't be, right? Ah, bother...let it be the chemist or nutritionist or even the chef to find out...I just wanna savour my milk curds now...

Hi Meldy...wow nonstop experiment uh...very good!

Oh yeah, about ur enquiry on SRK...I'm sure U're aware the SRK centre in BBT is at a shoplot. They emphasize more on the studies than playing I guess. My son never returns home without homework everyday. But he enjoys doing it. I would suggest SRK BBT to anyone. And yeah, they do have noon sessions. U may walk-in to the centre to get better view. Lemme know how it goes...U may mention Rishie's name to the principal or teachers there. ;)

It's really weird right,
when the milk's the same, pastuerized and homogenized, some brands work, some don't.

I never get any luck with goodday fresh milk. The other day I tried again, and failed.

Since you take milk on a regular basis, try every milk in the market la.. hahaha, and you can stil submit to the list even thought the dateline is over, just to add data to the issue. It'll be so nice of you

Thanks for the info...! In that case, I don't think I'll be sending him there...at least not so soon! (He's not even 3 yet!) But maybe in another 2 yrs time,when he's gonna start schooling--to help him get used to life in the primary school.

Btw, do you know that most teachers LOVE students like Rishie? Smart, positive...and ENJOYS HOMEWORK? Wow, could easily be a model student.

Wendy:
Of coz, I wouldn't mind that...this morning I made some for my mum...she came visiting at my Sis's place in Shah Alam. It so happens that she bought fresh cow milk from somewhere nearby so I din bother to ask for the vendor. The results was very softly set curd though didn't really pass the spoon test but my Mum loved it! I didn't manage to take photos la, so couldn't post it.

Sonia:
Not rajin la...just curious like Wendy...Moreover I don't get to cook, my MIL cooks for us, so all these experiments / light desserts are the only things I get to do in my kitchen.(besides preparing food for my babies)

My hubby loves ginger milk curd. I have never tried it before. Hope you can find the perfect recipe soon!

Food for tots:
Thanks! My hubby likes it too the first he tasted it...I think there really isn't a perfect recipe for everyone, just individual preferences and also the correct ginger juice-milk ratio. Why don't you try doing it? It's fun!

Blessed Homemaker said...

I don't think it's the kind of milk used, I think it's more the temperature control. I'm definitely going to try making this again with UHT milk.

Shirley @ Kokken69 said...

I applaud your persistence! I actually gave up after trying 2 different types of milk because I am not a milk person and I wouldn't know what to do with the copious amount of milk in the fridge... :)

Meldylocks and Her Three Bears said...

BlessedHomemaker:
Yeah, i thought so too...should be the protein and calcium and fat content of the milk. Nowadays the weather is SO hot, I don't think I'll be doing this too often unless its THAT time of the month. :)

Shirley:
I don't mind milk but i'm definately not a ginger person...but weirdly this tastes good to me! My sis who hates milk sorta find this nice too coz the ginger covers the milky smell a lot. I find making this fun too

Hi Mel,
How are you and look forward for new postings. Thanks for dropping by at my house frequently.

Meldylocks and Her Three Bears said...

HomeKreation:
U 'r welcome...that's becoz you make yummy-licious looking homecook Malay food!

I tried once and glad it worked! Don't dare to try again as I'm worried it'll fail =P I think it's a luck thing.

Meldylocks and Her Three Bears said...

I don't think Luck plays an important role...just use the same milk and steps everytime la...
anyway,even if it fails we can still drink the ginger milk :)
