Fruit Salad - Wishing you all a Wonderful New Year..!!

  • Mango (ripe)1 cup
  • Pineapple 2 cup
  • Grapes 1 cup
  • Orange 1 cup
  • Banana 1 cup
  • Apple 1 cup
  • Sugar 2 Tbsp
For the custard:
  • Milk 2 1/2 cup
  • Custard pdr 2 Tbsp
  • Corn flour 1/2 Tbsp
  • Sugar 1/4 to 1/2 cup
  • Vanilla essence 1/2 Tsp
  • Condensed milk (optional) 1/4 cup
Add the corn flour and custard powder to 1/4 cup milk and make it into a paste and keep it aside. Boil milk and sugar. When it stars boiling, add the above prepared paste into this and stir it continuously in low flame until it thickens. Cool it and add the vanilla essence and condensed milk (optional). Mix well and keep it refrigerated. 

Combine together chopped pineapple and sugar in a pan and saute it (do not overcook it). This is to prevent the pineapple from giving a bitter taste when put directly in the custard. After this, cool it and add the  rest of the fruits, except apple, into the pineapple mixture. Add the apple pieces only when you are ready to serve. Alternately, you can put the apple pieces in a small sugar syrup until it is ready to be served which prevents it from turning brown. Keep it refrigerated. 

While serving, put the fruits in a bowl followed by the custard. Serve it cold.
