Fruit Custard

THE FRUIT CUSTARD!

Food is just not a way fill your tummies, it's a wholesome experience on its own ! I feel blessed to share this beautiful piece of experience of art with you all !

This recipe is close to my heart as my mother made me this comfort food while the little me returned back from school. I would love to share the same.


THIS FOOD CUSTARD 

Is a quick summer dish, you can make in a jiffy. 
Is easy to make with your favourite fruit and nuts. 
Is an amazing way to eat seasonal fruits. 

WHY CUSTARD? 

A simple fruit custard like this uses ready made store bought custard powder.

My mom always made custard using kwality Custard Powder and I do think it works best.

Maybe it has something to do with the taste I grew up eating. Either way, you can use a vanilla flavored custard powder that you like. 

This fruit custard recipe can’t get any easier. You only need to cook the milk with sugar add custard powder and then chill it.

Once chilled, add chopped fruits. Usually you can chill your fruits before adding them to the custard.

It is essential to chill the custard before you add the fruits. Also once you add the fruits, the custard thins out as fruits release water.

So if the custard looks very thick, don’t panic. It will thin out once you add the fruits.

Once the custard and fruits both are chilled, mix them and them chill again for a few of hours before serving.

Custard is more flavorful once you let the fruits sit in the custard for a while. 

WHAT FRUITS TO ADD?


Personally, you can have apples, pomegranate and mangoes in my fruit custard.

But you can add whatever you like- grapes, bananas , blueberries.

Stay away from the citrus fruits like oranges, pineapple and kiwi.

Even fruits with more moisture content like watermelon won’t work here.

WHAT VARIATION YOU CAN MAKE ?

A simple custard is just with healthy fruits.

But, you can make it more flavorful by adding nuts like  walnuts, almonds, cashewnuts and dried grapes.
