Custard Fruit Salad

          This is a very delicious dessert with the creamy texture of the custard and the spongy crunch of the fruits in between...People from all age groups will definitely love to have Fruit Salad especially children ...
         This recipe is actually a blast from my past...My mom used to prepare it from my childhood.....Usually as a dessert for Eid...after the delicious biriyani....
         While they can be relished during all season, its a colorful and nutritious summer delight.....I have used Vanilla flavored Custard Powder which suits this Fruit Salad...Varieties of fruits can be used..depending on your taste...But i would recommend bananas, apples & mangoes...I personally think these fruits really bring out the taste of our dessert.


4.Strawberry-3 or 4
6.Pineapple-3 or 4 slices(canned pineapples in sugar syrup would be better)

7.Custard powder-3 tbsp

8.Milk-1/2 ltr (2 1/2 cup)
9.Sugar-4 tbsp
10.Sweetened Condensed Milk- 5 or 6 tbsp(optional..can use sugar instead)

Preparation(of fruits)

~Chop the fruits into small cubes and keep it ready in a bowl. 
~Sprinkle 1 tsp of sugar or honey immediately onto this fruit bowl and mix well with the fruits.
~ Mixing with sugar or honey helps prevent the change of color you see in the cut fruits like Banana and Apple (Maintains the fresh look of freshly cut fruits)
~You can also use the sugar syrup along with canned pineapples instead..Just pour little of it it into the fruit bowl & mix well...I think that would be easier.
~ Keep in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

Preparation(of custard)

~Take vanilla flavored custard powder in a small bowl. Add 2 tbsp milk, mix well with a spoon into a paste without  lumps & keep aside.
~Boil the remaining milk in a saucepan (chaya pathram). 
~Add sugar to this milk and stir continuously until the sugar dissolves completely.
~Add the sweetened condensed milk little by little & mix well.
~Check the sweetness & add more sugar or condensed milk.
~Now add the  custard paste  to the boiling milk and stir for 5 minutes until the whole mixture turns thick & remove from the flame. 
~Make sure you leave the mixture to cool for 10-15 minutes.


Preparation (of fruit salad)

~Now add the fruits mixture to the custard paste and mix well.
~I prefer adding the fruits just before serving. 
~You can even add a scoop of ice cream on  top ...i added fruit salad flavored ice cream..

         A lip-smacking dessert that you can have after a spicy and hearty meal is ready..... It’s easy to make and the taste just leaves you asking for more !!!
