Fruit And Nut Custard

After treating my family with an overdose of Figs and dates for the past one week, I decided to make a simple custard for the final day of Blogging Marathon.Fruit custard is one of the first desserts that I started making on my own when I was in school.

There is no specific recipe here so I am just writing what I did here. You can add or omit any ingredient according to your taste or availability.

Here is what I did....

Boil half a liter milk and simmer it. Meanwhile make a paste of 3 teaspoon of custard powder with a few teaspoons of milk and add to the simmering milk along with 3 teaspoons of sugar. Increase the flame and in 2 minutes, the mixture will thicken.Let it cool. Fold in chopped fruits and nuts and serve chilled.
