Most often, it is the good old dish, that brings a smile to my face.
Having not been so regular with posting, my SIL has come to my rescue again, with a post that is definitely one of my favourites. Like she says, the traditional custard, conjures childhood memories for me too. In fact, Most often it was one of my most favourite desserts as a kid. Even later, in my years in London, for a short time when I was staying in a student hostel while looking for a house, I would come back to the hostel cafetaria only to eat the best custard ever. For all those who love custard, and don't want the artificial flavouring that comes out of a box- this is The Recipe to try.
Growing up in India, I always thought Custard was one of those things that happened when you mixed milk with that powder that came in a box. At best, you ate it with seasonal and dry fruits. Honestly it was one of those desserts that I could not be forced to partake if my life depended on it.
My husband on the other hand loved it. He loved it as a child, and loves it now. For him, it was a dessert that brought back childhood memories. It has taken me close to ﬁfteen years of being married to ﬁnally appreciate this dessert.
I have found a recipe that is simple but gives truly delectable results. I hope you like it too.
