Strawberry Custard

I love custard with fruits as desserts, i do prepare custard with store bought custard powder whenever i need for making out custards at home, after a long hesitation i prepared myself at home for our desserts, also here its peak season for summer fruits like strawberry, raspberry etc...we were bored of making milkshakes and ice creams with these delicious fruits..As usual every weekend we went for farmer's market and i bought a basket  full of strawberries for death cheap rate, immediately i grabbed strawberries...thought of making something different i prepared myself custard at home and prepared this strawberry custard with strawberry chunks served with chilled home made custard...Voila!! a delicious creamy dessert, ready to relish...Am sending this strawberry custard to Happy Cook's Strawberry Feast...



1 cup Full fat milk
1/2cup Sugar
2 nos Eggs
1 cup Strawberries (chopped)
1½ tsp Vanilla extract
2tsp Corn flour

Heat milk in a heavy bottomed pan n bring it to boil...take a large bowl whisk both egg n sugar together until they turns soft n fluffy... add 1/4th of the boiled milk to the egg n sugar mixture n beat them together, add the rest of the milk to egg mixture, this is to avoid to cook the egg... While adding a boiled milk ,eggs may  get cooked to avoid this, add slowly the boiled milk with the egg mixture... add the vanilla extract n transfer the egg, milk n sugar mixture to the heavy bottomed pan, n stir it continously for a while, this is custard mixture.. while cooking, this mixture will turns slightly thick, mix the corn flour with a 2 tsp of water n keep aside..cook the custard mixture in simmer for atleast 15 minutes, now add the corn flour batter n stir again for a while...put off the stove..

Let it cool..take 2 tablespoon of chopped strawberries in a bowl n pour the custard on the top of the chopped strawberries, finish the strawberries with the custard..keep them in fridge atleast for  4 hours r overnite..

i hear what you say about custard powder...so easy to whip up when the craving for something light n sweet strikes. But custard made from scratch is definitely so much better, yours looks so delicious and creamy!
