I’m planning to celebrate the month of October with a bang. By now, you would have noticed that I’m not so good at preparing sweets or snacks. So when I saw this challenge- 31 Days where you post a series of anything of your choice, I thought why not try my best to prepare some sweets and snacks. After all this is the month of Diwali!! Did you like my logo? I love it <3
I remember making this dish when I was a kid. I had proudly given a share of my fruit custard to my neighbour aunty who is a darling lady. I still remember her two sons praising me for my custard. Years have passed and I still fondly remember those.
Since I was taking the Navrathri fast, P had loaded my kitchen with a dozen variety of fruits. I didn’t know what to do other than making a custard.
Vanilla flavored Custard powder – 2 tbsp
Milk -500 ml
Fruits- of your choice (Banana, apple, pineapple, papaya, musk melon, pomegranate, grapes(seedless),etc are popular choices).
Mix 2 tbsp of Vanilla custard powder with 1/4 cup 0f warm milk. Make a smooth paste without any lumps. The custard paste is ready and keep aside.
Boil the remaining of milk with sugar.
Add the custard paste to the milk and cook for about 5 mins, stirring continuously until it becomes thick.
Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. Refrigerate it.
Cut and add any fruits of your choice.
Arrange the fruits in a bowl and pour the cold custard on top of it . Serve Chilled.
Chef says: It is not advisable to use watermelon as it oozes out it’s water to the custard. Also, mix the fruits to custard only before serving.
