Fruit Salad with Custard



It was my hubby's birthday this week and i was confused what kind of dessert to prepare for him. I wanted something not too sweet and something which looks lovely. While shopping, a mixed fruit box caught  my eye & suddenly thought of preparing him a birthday special Fruit Salad. The custard recipe is similar to my Vanilla custard recipe. It was really yummy & he enjoyed too.  I'm sure you'll also love it. Try it out !!

Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp Corn flour (Cornstarch)
  • 2 cups Milk 
  • 1 Egg  
  • 1 tbsp butter 
  • 1/2 cup or less Sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla essence   
  • Sliced fruits
Directions
  1. Whisk egg in a bowl. Add sugar and vanilla essence. Beat well and keep aside.
  2. Mix cornflour and 5 tbsp milk separately and keep aside.
  3. Take a container, melt butter on medium heat, add milk and stir. 
  4. Transfer little hot milk from the container into the egg mixture. Stir & then pour the egg mixture into the boiling milk. Keep on stirring till you obtain a thick mix.
  5. Allow it to cool and sieve the custard to avoid small lumps.
  6. Refrigerate for 2 hours and mix with your favourite fruits. I have used strawberry, kiwi, pineapple, banana and grapes.
