Bananas with Custard

Summer really has you craving for something cold and chilling. Here's a recipe for a dessert which is good for any time of the also happens to be one of my favourites. It’s very simple, requires very few ingredients and is ready in a snap!

Bananas with Custard:

You will need:

500 ml Whole Milk
25 gms. Vanilla flavoured Custard powder (Recommended :Brown & Polson)
3-4 tbsp. Crystal sugar
2 ripe banana

  • Take 2-3 tbsps of milk from the 500 ml and mix with the custard powder to make a thin paste without any lumps.
  • Bring remaining milk to a boil.Add the sugar and stir till sugar dissolves.
  • Now add the custard paste to the boiling milk and stir continuosly on low flame till it thickens about 2 mins. When the custard coats the back of a spoon in a thin layer, remove from stove and let cool completely and then refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  • Slice ripe bananas and place in a serving bowl. Top with cooled custard.
  • Garnish with fresh cream and cherries or chocolate syrup and grated chocolate/cherries…or simply spike it with your choice of toppings.

Go on and indulge..!! :)
