Pandan coconut sorbet
Sheerin Ghaffar, Head Pastry Chef of Hakkasan Dubai, showcases the pandan leaf (also known as vanilla grass), in a sorbet, a component of the restaurant's 'Pandan Coconut Dream' dessert.
Blend the coconut cream, water and pandan leaves together in a blender for 15 minutes until fragrant and bright green.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl until well combined and set aside.
Heat the pandan coconut mixture on medium heat until it reaches 40℃/104°F.
Whisk the dry ingredients into the warm pandan coconut mixture until everything is dissolved.
Keep heating the sorbet mixture on medium until it reaches 70℃/158°F.
Remove from the heat and allow to rest in the fridge overnight to let the flavors infuse.
Strain and follow the instructions of your ice cream machine to churn into a sorbet.
Store in the freezer until ready to eat!
