KEY INGREDIENTS
Yield: approximately 1 cup
1 generous tbsp Rangsaa Insignia
240 ml whole milk
3 egg yolks from large eggs
50 gms granulated sugar

PROCEDURE
Place the milk and tea in a heavy saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes. Once ready, remove it from heat and let it stand for another 5 minutes. Pour through a fine-meshed sieve and set aside. While your mixture is getting done, whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until the sugar dissolves and the mixture has lightened in color. In a clean saucepan, reheat the infused milk to the simmer. Pour gradually over the egg yolks and sugar mixture, stirring to combine. Return that mixture to the saucepan and cook until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon (180 degrees F.)  Do not overcook or the mixture will curdle. Once thickened pour it through a fine-meshed sieve into a bowl set over ice water. Stir to cool quickly. Store in an airtight container refrigerated for up to 2 days.

RECOMMENDED USE
As the basis for an ice cream, as a dipping sauce for brownies or other rich cookies or bars, as a sauce over the ice cream of your choice, as a plating sauce for a seasonal fruit tart or as a pour over fresh berries.

RECIPE – Rangsaa Insignia Tea Infused Oatmeal Cookies

recipe-tea-rangsaa-insignia-cookieFind a fancy cookie jar for these sweet, crunchy, spicy oatmeal cookies made with whole-wheat flour. The use of tea-infused butter as an element makes them unique and adds flavors that will surprise your palate. It’s a quick recipe and yields about 15 cookies.

KEY INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cup wheat flour
3 tsp Rangsaa Insignia
1 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 cup pistachios
1 cup butter
1 egg

PROCEDURE
Start by making your rangsaa infused butter. Heat the butter in a saucepan. Once liquid, add the tea and let it infuse in the butter on low heat for about 5 mins. Then cover the saucepan and let the mixture sit for 20 mins.

While your butter is getting ready, preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl mix all the other ingredients and add clear butter. To separate the butter in the saucepan, pour the mixture through a fine sieve, pressing hard on the tea and then keep it aside. A quick tip here is that you can store the butter fried tea and use it later to flavor your rice. Tastes delicious!

Mix all the ingredients well until your cookie dough is well blended. Using two teaspoon dough per cookie, roll into balls, pressing gently on top. Place them on baking sheet about 1 1/2 inch apart. Bake for 20 mins until nicely brown. Once ready, serve fresh from the oven!

RECIPE – Rangsaa Insignia Thai-Style Fish Kebabs

recipe-tea-rangsaa-romance-2Here’s an appetizing, refreshing and flavorful fish kebabs recipe that will help you sneak a little extra goodness into your day.

KEY INGREDIENTS
500 gms white fish fillet
3 tsp Rangsaa Insignia
1/4 cup cornflour
1/2 cup butter
1 inch ginger
4 cloves garlic
3 spring onions
2 green chillies
1/4 tsp pepper
1 egg white
1 tsp salt

PREPARATION
What you need to jump start this recipe is tea infused butter. In a saucepan heat the butter and add tea. Heat the mixture on low heat for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and let it stand for 15 minutes. Press the tea nicely on the side and remove from butter. (Quick tip- you can store the tea and use it later to flavor your rice and stews.)

While your butter is infusing with tea, you can prep for rest of the recipe.
Add fish, ginger, garlic, cornflour, egg, salt and pepper in a food processor and blend into paste. Add finely chopped spring onions and green chillies, and mix them well in the paste. Once the saucepan mentioned above is cool, add the fish paste to it and mix well so the flavors of the tea-butter are evenly absorbed. Divide the mix into 8 equal parts. Use wet hands to shape portions into patties and place on a plate.

Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium. Add the kebabs and cook for 2 minutes each side, or until light brown and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat with the remaining kebabs, reheating pan between batches.

BEST ENJOYED
As snacks, light main course or starter, with thai chilli sauce.
