Tips for Fruit Salad with Custard
- Use fresh and full-fat milk for a rich taste for this Fruit Custard Recipe.
- Adjust sugar as per sweetness required. If you want to make it healthier you can add brown sugar or jaggery.
- If preparing during Navratri, custard powder can be replaced with Arrow Root Powder.
- You can choose the fruits as per your wish and seasonal. But don't use sour or unripened fruits.
- Never add citrus fruits like orange, grapefruit or melons as the milk curdles and the custard becomes watery.
- You can even use fruits like Papaya, strawberry, Mango, Cherry or even Tutti Frutti too.
- For more taste chopped nuts like Cashews, Almonds, Pistachios etc can be used.
- I used Vanilla flavoured Custard powder, you can even use banana, mango, apple, pineapple flavour too.
- If you are preferring for Vegan Version, milk can be replaced with almond or soy milk.
- After adding the custard mixture to the milk, just boil for 2 minutes, as the custard thickens more on cooling.
- Never add the fruits to the hot custard, as the whole taste will change.
- Refrigerate for a minimum time of 2 hours and then serve. This Fruit Salad With Custard stays good for 2 days under refrigeration.
- Furthermore, if you don't have Custard Powder in hand, you can use Corn flour / Corn starch or Arrow Root Powder. Just add a few drops of Vanilla essence or a small vanilla pod to the powder, else it tastes bland.
