DESSERTS are an integral part of a meal I feel. Why after meals, we can have it anytime of the day, let me tell you it tastes best at midnight. Truly, having desserts at midnight while watching TV is so comforting, I echoed my nocturnal husband. The best quick made dessert so far I feel is custard. If a working mother wants to store dessert on her refrigerator even on weekdays, nothing is easier than a custard. Keep it ready in hand, pour it over assorted fruits or cakes or even have it with a generous serving of dry fruits. You will love to see the happy faces around and go to sleep peacefully.

What I like about making a basic custard is that  we can make it anytime with ingredients already available at home. Here for you a no frill custard recipe with ingredients you already have in your pantry. Garnish with any fresh or dry fruits of your choice and enjoy!

Eggs : 4
Milk : 5 cups
Corn Flour : 1/2 cup
Sugar : 1/3 cup
Vanilla : 1 tbsp
I used chopped ripe Mango & Red Grape for garnish!


In a pan, whisk the eggs,milk,vanilla and cornflour together. Keep whisking till the mixture turns smooth and there is no lump left.

Switch on the gas oven. Place the pan on the gas. Stir constantly, bringing to boil and simmer for 2 minutes.

Now add the sugar, stir till it melts and switch off the burner immediately. Please note, the sugar should always be added at the last to avoid the mixture from burning.

Garnish as you wish or pour over cakes...warm or chilled...............anyway its yummilicious!!
