Cook’s Note

  • You may soak 4-5 saffron stands in 1 tablespoon milk and add it to custard while adding sugar.
  • While hot, custard looks thinner consistency, but once cooled, it gets thicker. So, do not thicken it up very much while cooking.
  • You may add dry fruits and Elaichi (cardamom) powder as well.
