    2. Whilst the milk is getting heated, in a small bowl, take 3 tbsp warm milk or milk at room temperature. You can take the 3 tbsp warm milk from the milk which is getting heated up or warm 3 tbsp milk separately in a microwave oven or on the stove top. Add 3 tbsp custard powder.

    8. The mixture will thicken slowly and the raw taste of the corn starch also goes away. For a thicker custard, cook for a few more minutes. allow the custard to cool at room temperature. Also keep in mind, that as the custard cools, it will thicken more. You can also keep the custard in fridge to chill it before adding the fruits.
