In this season when you can see the king of fruits everywhere, "Mango Custard" can be one of scrumptious dessert you can opt for your li'l one. I usually prepare it in the morning and keep it in refrigerator and when my kid comes back from school, she gets delighted finding a big bowl of her favorite custard with a cherry on top.
Milk 2 cups
Vanilla custard powder 2 tbsp
Sugar 3 tbsp
Powdered sugar 1 tbsp
Fresh cream (optional) 1/2 cup
Dry fruits (optional)
- Peel the mango and squeeze out the pulp from it. Take the pulp in a blender and make a puree of it.
- Take 1/4 cup of cold milk in and cup and add custard powder. Mix it well so as to avoid formation of lumps.
- Beat fresh cream in a bowl with powdered sugar to make soft peak. keep it aside.
- Heat a pan and add remaining milk. When the milks boils add sugar and stir for a couple of minutes. Now add milk mixed with custard powder and stir again for few seconds. Finally add mango puree and stir for a minute. When the consistency of custard becomes thick . add 2 tbsp of fresh cream (you can make this preparation without adding fresh cream also).you can now add some dry fruits like chopped almond, cashew, raisins.
Pour it in a bowl and add some fresh cream on top. Now keep it in refrigerator so that custard becomes thick. Serve it chilled.
