Custard Pudding is a layered, easy to make dessert. It is a good treat during hot summer months. One can customise to their preference. 

Custard pudding is one of the desserts I often make.  This dessert  is easy to prepare and  tailor-made to one’s taste and needs. Since it is the season of mangoes, I have used mango pieces today. One can add pomegranate arils and banana pieces too. Adding of chocolate ganache gives a good and rich taste to it.

A few pointers to make custard : 

  1. Use good quality  custard powder. I prefer using Brown and Polson.
  2. Make sure no lumps are formed. 
  3. Custard can be made either of thin or thick consistency. Here, we need one of moderately thick consistency.
  4. Do not use hot custard in layering.

Ingredients for Custard Pudding: 

      For the first layer: 

  • 15 digestive biscuits
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoon ghee

    For the second Layer: 

  • 1/2 litre milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon custard powder
  • a little water or milk for mixing

For the third layer: 

  • mango pieces
  • nuts
  • berries

Method : 

  1. At first, let us prepare the custard. Take milk in a thick bottom pan. Take custard powder in a small bowl and mix it with a small quantity of  water or milk. Keep it aside. Once it boils, add sugar and give a stir. Now, add the slurry to it. Keep stirring as you add it. As it boils, it thickens. Put it aside to cool.
  2. Chop the mango and dry fruits.
  3. Take the digestive biscuits and powder it. I have used Marie biscuit, find it ideal for many desserts. You can either put the biscuits in a zip-lock bag and press it with a rolling pin. One can also pulse them in the jar.
  4. Mix the crushed powder with ghee and cocoa powder. 

To Assemble:

  1. Take small glasses or a small jar. Put the biscuit crumble below and press it with the back of a spoon. 
  2. Put three tablespoon of the cooled custard to it.  Set it for sometime in the freezer. 
  3. Top it with mango pieces, dry fruits and berries.
  4. Chill and serve. 

Take a tip: 

  1. Different kind of fruits can be added.
  2. A spoon of soaked chia seed tastes good to it.
  3. You may top it with cornflakes.
  4. Instead of fruits, you can top it with chocolate ganache.
