Fruit custard is one of the easiest and delicious desserts of all time. To be honest, I usually resort to making this awesome dessert when I have some leftover fruits which are getting overripe. But nobody at home minds the status of the fruits when served in a custard. So this is one way to sneak in fruits which all of us enjoy. As most of us are aware, very simple ingredients are required for this great dessert. Top it with ice cream and you have a rich dessert for parties too!!

Fruit Custard
Fruit Custard With Apricot Compote

Ingredients - 

Milk 4 cups + 1/2 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Custard Powder 4 Tbsp
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp
Fruits (Bananas, Apples, etc) chopped as needed
Raisins and Cashews (Optional) as needed for garnish

Note - I also like to add some almond+cashew powder to the boiling milk to get some additional richness and taste specially when serving to guests  and/or kids.

Method Of Preparation - 

Boil 4 cups of milk in a sauce pan.

Add sugar and mix well. In another cup add cold milk and blend in the custard powder without any lumps. (I used vanilla flavored custard powder).

To the boiling sweetened milk, add the custard powder blended in cold milk and stir continuously and bring to a boil.

Let it cool and refrigerate for a few hours. 

Chop all the fruits on hand and mix it in the custard and serve. Don't forget to garnish with cashews and raisins for the 'extra' taste.
