Calories: 215 cal per portion


3 cups full-fat milk

4 tbsp castor sugar

4 tbsp custard powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup diced bananas

1/2 cup diced mangoes

1/2 cup diced chikoos

1/2 cup diced grapes

1/2 cup peeled and diced apples

3 tbsp fresh cream

2 tbsp jelly

1 tbsp crumbled mawa cake


Begin by bringing 3 cups of full-fat milk to a gentle boil in a thick-bottomed pan. As the milk starts to simmer, incorporate 4 tbsp of castor sugar, stirring until it dissolves and imparts a subtle sweetness to the milk.

Create a custard powder slurry by mixing 4 tbsp of custard powder with a small amount of cold milk. This slurry helps prevent lumps when adding the custard mixture to the boiling milk.

Infusing Elegance: Adding Custard to the Milk:

Introduce the custard powder slurry to the simmering milk, stirring continuously to ensure a smooth blend. The custard powder imparts a luxurious thickness to the milk, creating the velvety custard texture.

Elevate the custard's essence with a teaspoon of vanilla extract, infusing it with a fragrant undertone that heightens the sensory experience.

Allow the custard mixture to cool down for about 10 minutes, letting the flavors meld together and the temperature become ideal for the next steps.

To achieve a sumptuously rich and creamy consistency, blend in 3 tbsp of fresh cream into the custard mixture. This step adds a velvety touch that elevates the dessert's texture.

In serving glasses, orchestrate layers of flavor and texture. Begin with a spoonful of jelly, then add a medley of diced fruits, including bananas, mangoes, chikoos, grapes, and apples. Each fruit contributes its unique taste, forming a harmonious medley of flavors.

Carefully ladle a layer of the prepared custard onto the fruity ensemble, enveloping the fruits in its luxurious embrace.

For an extra layer of indulgence, sprinkle crumbled mawa cake on top of the custard. This nuanced addition adds a hint of Indian dessert flair to the dish.

Repeat the layering process, alternating between fruits, custard, and mawa cake crumbles, building a visually captivating dessert that is a true testament to culinary artistry.

Complete your masterpiece by garnishing the top layer with an arrangement of fresh fruits and a touch of jelly, transforming it into a work of edible art.


In every spoonful of this Fruit Custard, you will experience the harmonious interplay of flavors, the indulgence of creamy custard, and the vibrant burst of fresh fruits. This dessert transcends boundaries, captivating both the palate and the eyes, making every bite a celebration of culinary excellence.
