Fruit Custard

There is nothing much easier than making a custard for dessert. If planning for a party this is one recipe that can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator. All you have you do on the day of is chop up some fruits and serve.

Ingredients

For Custard

500 ml or 17 oz Milk (around 2 cups and 2 tbsp)
2 tbsp store bought custard powder (I used mango flavor)
4 tbsp Sugar
pinch of elaichi or cardamom powder(Optional)

For Garnish

Assortment of fruits.(Apples, banana, strawberry, grapes, raspberry, orange segments, Pineapple, Dates etc..)

Method

Take 1/4 cup of milk and add the custard powder and elaichi powder. Mix well to form a thick paste without any lumps. Set aside.
In a sauce pan add rest of the milk and sugar. Bring it to a boil. Add in the paste stirring vigorously not to form any lumps. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes and turn off the stove. Do not stop stirring as we do not want any lumps in the custard. Transfer to a bowl, let it cool and put it in the refrigerator atleast for 2 to 3 hours for the custard to thicken.

Assembly

Take a dessert bowl and form layers of custard and fruits, bottom layer being the custard. Garnish with fruits and a mint leaf on the top. Fruit custard is ready to be served :)

Note

Do not use fruits like water melon they ooze out water which will make the custard runny.
Decrease or increase the amount of custard powder to make it thinner or thicker.
