Fruit Salad With Custard




I prefer custard with almost all my desserts... sounds crazy right??? its always been my favourite.. i usually prepare this way..I add 2 tsps of custard in 1/4 cup of cold milk. In seperate pan, i heat milk bring it to boil, i add this custard mixture to the milk while boiling and boil for another couple of mins till custard is cooked. I then add sugar (according to ur taste). Keep stirring this mixture untill u turn off the gas or else it will burn at the bottom.. It should be a thick liquid.
I add chopped fruits like apple, banana , blueberries, kiwi, strawberries, pineapple once the custard cools down. It usually thickens after it cools down. So make it bit watery so that it will get the right consistency after its cooled. Top it with ice cream.


Most of the times i make very thick custard and pour it into a container and keep it in the refrigerator for half an hour. I then invert the container on a plate and enjoy the custard as it is. I love this form. It looks like jelly :)
