Fruit Custard

This is one of the easiest and tastiest Indian desserts you can make. It is super healthy since you could any amount of your favorite fruits in it. Gets ready in a jiffy and sounds perfect after a heavy meal. Could be made year around with any seasonal fruits available.


Ingredients
Custard powder - 3 tablespoons
Milk - 3 cups
Sugar - 1/2 cup or as desired
Diced fruits - 3 cups or more (apples, banana, oranges, kiwi, pomegranate, strawberries, mangoes etc.)

Directions
In half a cup of milk mix together the custard powder until it dissolves.
In a heavy bottomed vessel, heat the remaining milk and bring it to a boil. Add in the sugar and stir once in a while until it dissolves.
Slowly add the custard-milk mixture and stir it a little. Simmer and keep stirring for about 5 minutes until it thickens and coats the spoon.
Remove from heat and allow it to cool completely.
Add any amount of diced fruits and refrigerate.

Serve chilled! It is that simple!
