What does this curd taste like?

I am obsessed with this curd. The dominant flavour is definitely ginger and I always use fresh ginger to make this curd, it makes a massive difference. I tried to use powdered ginger but was not impressed with the outcome. So run to the shop and get fresh ginger, NOW!

When it comes to the grapefruit taste, it is not strong at all – it is more a hint of grapefruit. No bitterness. I am just saying it so there is no disappointment in the hearts of people who love the taste of grapefruit.
