Milk – 2 cups

Sugar – 4 tablespoons

Custard powder – 2 tablespoons

Chopped fruits – 2 cups

Milk – 2 tablespoons (at room temperature)

Chopped cashewnuts and raisins – 1 tablespoon (optional)


Heat 2 cups of milk in a pan or vessel on medium heat. Add sugar and continue stirring so that the sugar is dissolved well.   Mix the custard powder in 2 tablespoons of milk  in a small bowl, to make a smooth paste.  Ensure there are no lumps in it.

Now add this custard mixture to the boiling milk and keep on stirring.  Cook on a low flame till the  milk begins to thicken.

Once the milk reaches a desired  consistency or medium consistency, switch off the flame.  Allow it to cool down completely.

Chop the fruits and keep it ready.  Take a serving bowl and add the mixed fruits and nuts.


Pour the milk-custard mixture over it and mix well.  Chill in the refrigerator for half an hour.

You can use seasonal fruits available during the season. I used pomegranate, papaya, apple, grapes, banana, cashewnuts and raisins.

The more fresh fruits used, gives a better taste to the fruit custard.

You can use custard powder of your own desired flavour.  If you are using plain custard powder, you can add few drops of vanilla essence to enhance the flavour.

Do not make a very thick custard consistency, because on cooling the custard begins to thicken more.

You can also cool the milk custard in the refrigerator, once prepared.  Add the fruits to the milk custard at the time of serving and serve chilled.

    I do make like this. I add scrapes of “munch” wafers to garnish, at times I crumble gulab jamun and mix to give a richer taste. Thanks!
