Fruit salad with custard

This is a very simple, yet delicious and healthy dessert that can earn you a lot of appreciation from your guests. Cut fruits are healthy, add free-flowing custard to it and make it a delicacy :) This is one of my favorites and Sudha mami, my aunt, makes it for us every time we visit Trivandrum.

What You Need -
  • Assorted Cut Fruits - mangoes, apples, bananas, grapes (all fruits that you love)
  • Fresh Milk - 600 ml (3 tumblers)
  • Custard powder (comes in many flavors - Kesar Elaichi, Kesar Pista, Vanilla, Strawberry - Choose your fave!) - 1.5  tbsp
  • Sugar - 2.5 tbsp

How To -

  • Bring 500 ml(1/2 litre) of milk to a boil.
  • Microwave 100 ml of milk for a minute and dissolve custard powder well by whipping it nicely with a spoon.
  • Once the milk starts boiling, add the custard mixture gradually and keep stirring in well.
  • Keep the custard cooking in the saucepan and add sugar now.
  • Keep the heat low and please, don't stop stirring. This helps to prevent lumps from being formed. 
  • Continue stirring until it thickens and then refrigerate.
  • Pour cold custard over fruits and enjoy! :)
