My workplace canteen in Mumbai would make this once a week and I was sure to never miss that.
I have tried 'Bird's Eye' custard powder this time and it works well. Back in India, I was a fan of 'Brown & Polson'.
Semi Skimmed milk
Condensed milk (Nestle Carnations Light condensed milk is Low fat)
Peeled Fresh fruits of your choice (I have used apples, bananas and grapes)
Make a paste using custard powder and little cold milk. Keep aside.
Heat remaining milk and once it starts boiling, add the custard paste and keep stirring continuously. The milk will start thickening. Remove from heat. Bring it to room temperature.
Add condensed milk to this according to preferences. It gives sweetness and a wonderful flavour.
If you would like to use sugar instead, add it when you put the milk to boil.
Mix the peeled fruits in your custard and put this in the refrigerator.
Relish your chilled fruit custard!!!
Do not use papaya. If it is not peeled properly, then the entire custard will turn bitter.
Avoid melons as they leave water.
Chickoo tastes amazing in custards.
