Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Milk: 4 Cups
- Custard Powder: 2 Tablespoon
- Sugar or honey: 2 Tablespoon (Custard powder contains sweet ingredients, so check the taste while adding sugar)
- Ghee: 2 Teaspoon
- Dry fruits: 1 Tablespoon chopped Cashew, Almonds, Pistachios, Walnuts and Raisins
- Cardamom Powder (elaichi); ¼ teaspoon
- Take custard powder in a small bowl, add 4 tablespoons of warm milk. Mix it well to a smooth paste, with no lumps.
- In a pan heat ghee and roast the dry fruits for 1 minutes. Take out the roasted dry fruits and keep aside.
- Add milk in the same pan.
- Once milk starts to boil, add this custard paste. Stir continuously.
- Cook over medium flame for 7-8 minutes or till custard thickens up.
- Add sugar and stir for 2-3 minutes or till sugar melts.
- Add the roasted dry fruits and cardamom powder. Mix well.
- Turn off the heat.
- Transfer the custard to a big bowl. And let it cool completely.
- Refrigerate for minimum 30 minutes and serve.
- 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.
