Black Sesame Pudding (Kuro Goma Purin, 黒ごまプリン)

I came across La Fuji Mama's website when I was searching for a recipe for Strawberry Shortcake.   As I was going through all her recipes, this Black Sesame Pudding (Kuro Goma Purin) recipe caught my attention and immediately I bookmarked it.  I always loves dessert and more so this pudding with Black Sesame Seeds!!

I think I like all black seeds..... like the poppy seeds too!!

Black Sesame Pudding (Kuro Goma Purin, 黒ごまプリン)
Recipe source from Rachael of La Fuji Mama

7g gelatin powder
1 ½ tablespoons cold water
1/3 cup toasted black sesame seeds
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2  ½  cups milk
½ cup granulated sugar
1 cup whipping cream

1. Soften the gelatin: 
    Put the cold water in a medium-size bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the top of the 
    water and set aside to soften.

2. Grind the sesame seeds: 
     Blend the sesame seeds together with 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar in a blender 
     till fine.

3. Make the pudding: 
    In a medium-size saucepan, mix the ground sesame seed mixture, milk, and 1/2 cup 
    granulated sugar together. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent the
    milk from burning. As soon as the mixture comes to a boil, add the softened gelatin and 
    stir to melt and combine. Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk in the cream.

4. Cooling the pudding: 
     Fill a large bowl halfway with ice, then cover the ice with cold water. Pour the pudding 
     from the saucepan into a slightly smaller bowl, and carefully place the bowl into the ice 
     water bowl, taking care not to spill water into the pudding bowl. Whisk the pudding 
     briefly, then leave it to cool for 5 minutes.

5. While waiting for the milk mixture to cool, set out few pudding bowls to pour the pudding 

6. After cooled, whip the pudding for about 5 minutes (this whisking will produce a lighter 
     pudding), then equally divide the pudding between the prepared containers. Cover the 
    bowls and place in the refrigerator to set up for a minimum of 4 hours, or until firm. Serve 
    cold, garnished with a bit of whipped cream or topping of choice.
