Make Custard with Custard Powder

I love dryfuits so I keep adding them in cakes, desserts, sweets, pudding Or custards. I am a crazy person and I love being one. The best part was I just handed a bowl of custard to my hubby he ate all of them and really loved it. He had a heavy dinner else he might have eaten one more bowl. today I made potato-french bean vegetable with pooris and brinjal fry. I had my dinner at 7.30 much before as I just can’t resist to eat pooris they are my favorite. There are very few food items in this world which aren’t my favorite.

Just two weeks more for this year to end. Time is really passing by too fast. Today I was finding very difficult to select photos for custard as most of the pics were good. Hence there are some more pics than my normal post.

Pune has got chills and its increasing. I love winter as I love to eat and sip hot drinks like soup, herbal tea, black tea and food what you were thinking? Now I just don’t like hot food I also love to eat cold stuff like kulfis, icecream, faloodas and custard during winter. Guess just another excuse from a foodie.

Total Time: 30 mins making + 3 hours refrigeration

Serves : 6 to 7 people

Ingredients for making custard with custard powder:

Custard

  1. 1 ltr full cream milk which is boiled earlier
  2. 6 tbsp organic sugar / sugar ( I prefer less sugar and I used organic sugar)
  3. 1 t/s salt
  4. 3 tbsp heaped vanilla custard powder of any good brand
  5. 16 to 18 crushed Or chopped almonds
  6. 16 to 18 cashew nuts crushed Or chopped
  7. 10 to 12 pistachios chopped
  8. 6 to 8 dried apricot chopped
  9. 2 to 3 dried figs chopped

Cashew Pomegranate Cream (optional)

  1. 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  2. 14  to 15 cashewnuts soaked in hot water for 20 mins
  3. 3 tbsp organic sugar / sugar

Method:

Firstly chop all dry fruits and keep ready. Place milk on a heavy bottomed pan on slow heat. Once milk starts boiling take some hot milk in a mixing bowl. Add custard powder to it and mix nicely.

The milk will start thickening after some time. Add salt and chopped dryfruits.  Combine all nicely. It’s important to keep stirring else it might stick to the bottom.

Once milk thickens switch off the gas and remove from fire. Allow to cool down. Pour the lukewarm custard over the moulds. Chill in the fridge for 3 hours Or once set. Meanwhile let’s make our cashew pomegranate cream. Combine blanched cashewnuts + pomegranate seed + sugar into a processor. Grind until smooth mixture is formed. Your topping is ready. Once custard is set top this cream over the custard and serve chilled. Garnish with few pomegranate seeds.

Tip:

  1. While making custard keep stirring and place you heat on low mode for better results.
  2. Add dry fruits Or fruits of your choice. Please note if you planning to add fruits add once custard cools down else your custard will cuddle.
  3. Always mix custard powder with warm milk separately don’t directly mix with milk. Otherwise your custard won’t be smooth and lump free.

Enjoy Custard with Custard powder!

I’m a huge believer that it makes perfect sense to use custard powder, especially when I need a quick and delicious dessert!

When I lived with my parents growing up we often had custard made from custard powder because it was so easy and I always loved it. But I haven’t had it in years. You have made it seem inviting all over again and those photos are lovely.
