Rich Apple Custard / ರಿಚ್ ಆಪಲ್ ಕಸ್ಟರ್ಡ್ - Re posted

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

This is one of the dessert which I prepare quite frequently during apple season. Also, when I was working, I used to prepare this easy n delicious apple custard to serve the guests most of the time. The reason is that it can be prepared in the morning itself and my cooking time will be reduced little bit! It can be served without ice cream also, but ice cream will add more taste to this dessert. In case you are not adding ice cream, just compensate it with more amount of dry fruits :)
Vanilla ice cream is a good combination with this custard. I didn't had the stock of vanilla ice cream at home, so I have used black currant ice cream for a change. You can decorate it with the dry fruits of your choice.


Preparation time: 1/2 hour
Cooling time: 2 hours
Servings: 3

Ingredients:
Milk - 2 1/2 cup
Apple - 1 halve
1 large banana - fully ripened 
Custard powder - 2 tbsp
Sugar for sweetness (around 5 spoons)
Pinch of salt
Ice cream - 3 scoops
For garnishing: cashews, raisins, cherries 


Method:
Pour the custard powder into 1 1/2 cups of milk and mix it well without any lumps.
Heat it on medium flame. Keep stirring continuously and switch off the flame once it starts thickening and you reach the consistency of dosa batter. Allow it to cool down for few minutes.
In the meanwhile, chop the apple and banana finely. Don't remove the peel from apple.


Add the chopped fruits, sugar, pinch of salt and the remaining milk to the custard mixture and refrigerate it for 2 - 3 hours.
Before serving, distribute the apple custard into 3 bowls. Add 1 scoop of ice cream and put a cherry on the top of each. Garnish it with generous amount of cashews and raisins.
