How to make fruit custard?
First, take a bowl. Add custard powder.
Add 2 tbsp water. Mix well.
Now take a saucepan or pan. Boil some milk on high flame. Then turn the flame on low. Add sugar. Mix well.
Then add the custard powder. Make sure to pour the custard on low flame and stir the milk continuously. Do not stop your hand at this time.
After that stir the milk on medium to high flame. And cook them for 3 to 4 minutes until it turns thick. Here, if your custard is thin in consistency add more powder and mix them in the milk. Or if your custard looks thick, add more milk and mix well. We do not want too thick or thin consistency. After 3 to 4 minutes, turn off the heat. And leave it to cool down. You can keep them in the fridge to chill.
When it is completely chilled, chop some fruits into small cubes. And mix them in the custard.
Here I used orange pulp, apples, bananas, pomegranate seeds. You can also add kiwi, strawberry, grapes, blueberry, mangoes, etc.
One most important thing is that always add fruits at the time of serving. Do not add them before serving. So you can store the plain vanilla custard base for 1 to 2 days in the fridge.
Fruit custard is ready to serve.
