Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons Custard powder*
  • 2 cups Milk*
  • 3 tablespoons Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Ground cardamom
  • 1 cup Mango puree*
  • As needed Fresh fruit, for serving

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine custard powder with ¼cup of milk. Whisk well and set aside.
  • Combine rest of the milk and sugar in a medium size saucepan. Bring to a boil on medium heat.
  • Once the milk comes to a boil, remove from heat and slowly add the custard powder mixture whisking continuously.
  • Place the pan back on medium heat. While whisking continuously, bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon. This takes about 4~5 minutes.
  • Stir in the mango puree and ground cardamom, mix well and cook till mango puree is heated through, about 2~3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let the mixture cool completely. Place a plastic wrap on the top of the custard to prevent skin to form. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.
  • Remove from the fridge and whisk the custard to make it creamy. Divide between serving bowls and serve immediately topped with fruit. Enjoy!!

Notes

 
  • I recommend using 2% or whole milk in this recipe. You can make it vegan too by using non-dairy milk like almond or oat.
  • I use Brown Polson brand custard powder. But feel free to use other brands like Bird's. If none of these are available, then use equal amount of cornstarch and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract.
  • You can use store bought canned mango puree like I did. Or puree 2~3 medium size ripe mangoes until smooth and use in the recipe.
  • Fresh fruit that you can be used in this recipe - banana, apple, grapes, pomegranate, chopped nuts etc.
