Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

You'll need

750 gm chicken ribs (see note) 80 ml (1/3 cup) light soy sauce 80 ml (1/3 cup) Shaoxing wine 60 ml (¼ cup) sesame oil 2 tbsp Chinese five-spice For deep-frying: vegetable oil 225 gm (1½ cups) self-raising flour 3 eggs, lightly beaten 6 kaffir lime leaves, thinly sliced to serve 4 birdseye chillies, thinly sliced, to serve 2 spring onions, thinly sliced, to serve   Tamarind hot sauce 85 ml light soy sauce 70 ml coconut vinegar (see note) 70 ml Sriracha sauce 50 gm tamarind purée 50 ml sweet soy sauce 50 gm chilli jam (see note) 40 gm gula melaka (dark palm sugar), finely chopped Juice of 2 limes 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Combine chicken ribs, soy sauce, Shaoxing wine, sesame oil and five-spice in a non-reactive container, ensuring ribs are completely coated, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • 02
  • For tamarind hot sauce, whisk ingredients in a bowl to combine, refrigerate until required. This will keep for 2-3 days in the fridge.
  • 03
  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep saucepan over high heat to 180C. Place flour in a bowl and season to taste. Dip ribs in egg, then flour, shake off excess and deep-fry in batches until golden brown and crisp (5-6 minutes; be careful, hot oil will spit). Drain on paper towels, season to taste with salt, then combine ribs in a large bowl with tamarind sauce and coat well. Serve hot, scattered with kaffir lime leaves, chillies and spring onions.

Note Chicken ribs are pieces of bone-in breast; they're available from poultry shops or butchers. You can also substitute chicken wings. Coconut vinegar is available from Asian grocers. Gingerboy makes its own chilli jam; we used shop-bought.
