Fruit custard and jelly

image

I have such fond memories of this dessert! This dessert was a regular affair at my place, my mom made this mostly on Sunday’s to treat us something sweet after a scrumptious meal πŸ™‚ My sister was never fond of custard, and so I always had her share !!

This also is a regular feature in most of the Goan weddings along with caramel custard and other traditional sweet delicacies.


What’s more? Its a simple, fuss free preparation, and one elegant looking dessert. If you are in no mood of making a lavish and time consuming sweet treat for your guests, Try this!! ItΒ will not let you down!

Ingredients:

1 & 1/2 cup milk

1 and 1/2 tablespoon custard powder

3 tablespoon sugar, or as per desired sweetness

1 Jell dessert packet

1 cup of assorted fruits. chopped ( I used strawberries, pineapple, appleΒ &Β kiwis )

Preparation:

  1. Prepare Jelly as per package instructions. Keep it aside to set.
  2. To prepare the custard: Dissolve the custard powder in about 1/4 cup of milk ( room temperature/cold) , mix well to form a smooth paste. Set aside. Boil in the remaining milk along with the sugar in a saucepan. Add the prepared custard paste in the boiling milk and heat further for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously. To avoid the skin on top of the custard, place a parchment paper/ cling wrap on the surface of the custard before it sets. Refrigerate it until further use. ( I usually prepare the custard and jelly the previous night and let it set in the refrigerator.)
  3. To assemble : pour about 3-4 tablespoons of the custard at the base, then some chopped fruits, again layer with some more custard, top it off with chopped Jello-o pieces. Serve chilled.

Notes:

The above quantity of custard serves 3 people, you may double or triple the quantity of custard accordingly.
