Simple Fruit Custard

This is a light dessert after a heavy meal!!!!! 

One of my pantry staples is vanilla flavored custard powder. This is so handy and helps to whip up fruit custard very fast. Especially when cooking for a crowd or for a huge potluck.

This dessert can be pulled out with only 4 ingredients, so thought of sending it to the event JUST "4" FUN of Good Food. All the best for hosting this event....

Ingredients :
   

Milk - 4 cups
Custard Powder - 2 tablespoon
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Mixed fruits - 2 to 2 1/2 cups (I have used apples, papaya, banana, strawberries, green grapes, dried cherries)


Procedure : 

Mix the custard powder with 1/4 cup of milk and set it aside.

Boil rest of the milk in a pan. When it is boiling add the custard powder mixture. Let it cook for 5 minutes or until the milk is thickned and the raw flavor of the custard powder is gone.

Now add sugar and mix well. Sieve / strain the milk mixture and keep it in the fridge.

Cut the fruits to small chunks and keep it ready.

While serving the dessert mix the fruit with custard and serve it cold.

Note: Sugar can be added or reduced according to one's sweet tooth.

Any combination of fruit can be used except citrus fruits.

Try mixing the fruits and custard at the last moment as the fruits will remain crunchy. Some time the papaya has the tendency to turn bitter and if mixed early the full custard will taste bitter.
