adapted from :
serves :    8

Ingredients :

2  cups  whole milk
3  tbsp  custard powder  ~  vanilla flavor or any other flavor of your choice
3  tbsp  sugar  or  as per desired sweetness
1  Jello  dessert packet  (I use Nona Kristal Jeli - strawberry flavor)
1-5  cups  of chopped assorted fruits  (I used strawberries, mango & blueberries)

Directions :

1.  Prepare Jelly as per package instructions.  Keep it aside to set.  Once it is lukewarm, pour about 1/4 cup in serving glasses or bowl.  Leave it to set completely in the refrigerator.

2.  To prepare the custard :   Dissolve the custard powder in about 1/4 cup of milk from the above recipe (room temperature/cold), mix well to form a smooth paste.  Set aside.

3.  Boil in the remaining milk along with the sugar in a saucepan.  Add the prepared custard paste in the boiling milk and heat further for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously until it thickens slightly.  To avoid the skin on top of the custard, place a parchment paper/cling wrap on the surface of the custard before it sets.  Refrigerate it until further use.

4.  To assemble :   Pour about 3 tablespoons of the custard over the set jelly, top with some chopped fruits.  Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve...

TIPS :   Alternatively, you can serve it the traditional way, i.e.  pour custard in individual serving bowls, top with jelly pieces and fruits....
