  2. Chocolate pudding recipe

    You're right. I thought one tablespoon seemed low too. Maybe the author made a mistake and it's supposed to be one cup? On the other hand milk contains natural sugar anyway. Maybe it tastes plenty sweet enough without ???   Idk though one liter of milk should be enough for 4 people. I can't imagine one tablespoon tasting very sweet.   wondering if anyone tried anything similar,

    Would love to hear it. 
  5. Chocolate pudding recipe

    Hello all.   Came across a recipe for a chocolate pudding. Except the translation seems a bit odd. Hoping someone can translate this better than Google. I think it involves milk . Cornstarch. Cocoa powder and sugar.  Except the amount of sugar seems very low and I don't understand the part about 50%cocoa. It comes in 100% cocoa only right?   viel Speisestärke für wenig Geld Reviewed in Germany on 15 March 2020 Größe: 2,5kg Beutel Hier kommt ein sehr großer Vorrat Speisestärke für wenig Geld. Ich benutze sie zum Kochen. Immer dann, wenn ich etwas andicken möchte (Soßen, Suppen etc.) und dazu nicht zum fertigen Maggi- oder Knorr-Päckchen greifen möchte. Auch mein Puddingpulver mache ich selbst. Das vermeidet jede Menge Müll. Denn für 1 Liter Schokopudding braucht man 2 vorgefertigte Päckchen (meine "Mannschaft" schreit fast täglich nach Pudding). Hierzu mische ich bis zu 50% reines Kakaopulver (Backkakao) mit Speisestärke (keinen Zucker). Für einen Liter Milch nehme ich dann 1 Esslöffel Zucker in den Topf und gieße mit dem Rest von 1 Liter Milch auf. Zuvor habe ich 100g meines Puddingpulvers mit einem gutem Schwapp Milch und einem Eigelb verrührt. Sobald die Milch im Topf heiß ist (noch nicht hoch steigend), gebe ich unter ständigem Rühren meine Mischung in die heiße Milch. Fertig ist der Pudding, sobald er im Topf blubbert...immer fleißig rühren, damit der Pudding nicht anbrennt. Das Eiweiß wird schnell steif geschlagen und statt Sahne dazu gegessen.
  6. Availability of cornstarch in Germany

      There is definitely a difference!!!   Cornflour (UK ) is the same as (us) cornmeal and is finely ground yellow powder made from corn (us maize) used just like other flours in bread for example   (Us) cornstarch is a fine white powder made only from a certain part of the corn/maize. Containing the starch duh ! And is used to thicken recipes! Only get small amounts are used though! For example custard only a couple of tablespoons can mark half a litre of custard.  So you don't want to put cups of this stuff into recipes or it'll be a thick blob !!   To summarise.  Cornstarch /SPEISESTAERKE fine white powder to thicken   Cornflour/ maizemehl . Yellow powder made from corn aka maize. used for breads etc                  
  7. A British-style curry for the homesick

    Don't use yoghurt . I find it makes the curry "bitty"  Don't like the texture one bit.   I prefer to coconut milk. Much smoother. Although I didn't use to the same curry powder either (the yoghurt curry contained garam masala.)   Also just tomatoe paste. I find it unlike tomatoes. It won't add excessive water. (Making the curry less creamy and more watery) Or tomatoe seeds . Tomatoe paste keeps it thick. Creamy and a rich flavour while simultaneously turning the colour a darker shade of
  8. Looking for some English tea

    Ummm 10 ISH pounds for 240 is well overpriced. Isn't that looked 3.40 in the UK?   Rather find a local better value tea than that. Ridiculous cost.   I'm in filderstadt. Baden Wurttemberg Any Asian shops or whatever where I can get a passable English breakfast tea?

  11. German equivalents of heavy cream

      In cheesecake recipes from the UK. They call for heavy cream with a fat content of at least 40%   Schlagsahne seems to go up to 32% max where I live. I wonder if schlagsahne combined with sahnateif. (a product used to keep whipped cream stiff) will work as a decent substitute or even a better replacement to UK whipping cream?   Otherwise I'm very interested in these higher fat content creams you mentioned.  I'm in filderstadt 70794 I see Lidl aldi Rossmann penny rewe and netto. I've never come across an Edeka 
  12. A British-style curry for the homesick

    I like cumin. Cloves cardamon and I brace tomatoe paste not a tin of tomatoes. I'm guessing that won't work?    Every other spice I have including ginger and cinnamon. BTW cinnamon in a curry? That's a first isn't it? Usually use that for my apple crumble /pie.   
  13. A British-style curry for the homesick

    Guys. Good discussion but I came here hoping to get a good British style curry which wasn't so hard to make. Seems to be a bit of an argument here on which is best?    I would love a simple British style one for beginners. As I can't find the ready made patak sauces in a jar ANYWHERE in filderstadt.. Or can I find the instant curry sauce powders. I used to buy one in farm food for a pound for a box of powder the size of a fray bentos pie in a tin..  Easy. Just add both water stir until it thickens.   Sometimes I don't want to cook a complicated curry sometimes I just want something to go over my chips and quick to make? Not that I mind cooking. I love it.. But sometimes no I want easy.   In other words I'm looking for both..   Now I gather coconut milk or yoghurt is used?  Which? And what type of yoghurt. Greek. Low fat etc . I've got a bunch of spices as in constantly expanding my culinary horizons but not found fresh coriander anywhere.   I don't want a very got curry. !! Like medium - medium/mild.   Start me off with something simple to begin with please. If possible show me what it will look like  
  14. What's the best German equivalent of beef Oxo cubes?
