As summer has arrived with all its pace , so we need something chilling and soothing for our tummy too. Apart from ice creams and cold drinks , some healthy cum yummy dessert also works best. So today I am sharing a very easy yet super tempting dessert anyone can prepare and satisfy everyone's tummy without more fuss. You can find this dessert in almost all parties and celebrations, as it is too easy to cook. 
Stepwise recipe is given below, do try and don't forget to share your experience with me.

VANILLA CUSTARD





Serves: 6-7
Time: 30 mins ( leaving chilling time)

Ingredients 

1 lt milk
50 gms custard powder
1/2 cup sugar ( as per taste)
Fruits , cut in bite size pieces ( Apple, banana, kiwi, grapes, pomegranate, pears etc)
Dry fruits ( as per your choice) , chopped roughly ( completely optional) 

Method:

First of all boil the milk and add sugar to it.


 In the meanwhile dissolve custard powder in 1/4 cup of warm milk to make a thin smooth paste. 


Now add the custard paste to boiling milk and stir constantly to avoid formation of any lump. Let it boil again, stirring in between. Let it simmer for 10-12 mins or till you see it got nicely thickened and colour also darken to dark cream from light. 


**If you feel your custard is not looking as thick as in pics then don't panic as it will further thickens on chilling.

 Now switch off the flame and let it cool completely but stir it occasionally during cooling to avoid formation of dry skin over it. Now add chopped fruits and nuts. Mix well and serve. But for best taste, chill it before serving.



I used to prepare it and let it chill in fridge. When need to serve just add freshly chopped fruits and nuts of everyone's choice and serve. As my kids are picky eater that's why I use this trick of serving according to individual choice. You can also use it to have different taste in every bowl.


This measurement ratio is perfect and never fails so follow blindly and relish on your creamy delight every time.
