Lemon Curd Recipe

I saw this recipe in one of the cooking show in Food Food. Instantly loved it. I had some leftover pastry from my custard tart, i used it to make small tart shells and filled it with this lemon curd. It was delicious..

Hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 5 to 8 mins
Makes : 1 cup


Sugar - 1/4 cup / 50 grams
Lemon - 3 tblspn
Soft Unsalted Butter - 50 grams
Salt  a pinch
Egg Yolk - 1
Lemon Zest - 1 tsp


Grate lemon rind, don’t grate the white part. I just peeled the yellow alone.

Take sugar and lemon rind in a blender and make it into a powder.

Now take a sauce pan, add in butter, lemon sugar, salt in. Beat till it is creamy.

Once it is creamy. Add in egg yolk and beat till it is creamy again.

Now pour in the lemon juice and mix well.

Now heat it on low to medium heat. It will get thick and thick. You have to keep mixing.

Once it is thick like a batter, remove it and pour it into a bowl.

Chill it.



1)You have to mix the butter and sugar till it is creamy before adding yolk.
2) When you grate or peel the lemon rind, use only yellow part, dont grate the white part, it will be very bitter
3)Once you add the lemon juice into the mix, it will look curdled, but dont worry it will thicken and get creamy as you heat it.
4)Heat it on low to medium heat stiring continuously.
