Take a pan and pour five cups of milk, two cups of sugar, and about five tablespoons of cornstarch in it. Cook this mixture on low heat for about five minutes, till it thickens a bit. You may stir continuously to prevent the mixture from sticking to the base of the pan. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl put four egg yolks and beat them till they become fluffy.

After about two minutes remove the mixture from the stove and add two tablespoons of melted butter, five ounce of baking chocolate, and one teaspoon vanilla essence to the mixture.

Now grease a deep pie plate and pour the pastry pie crust paste in it. Bake till it attains a golden color. Remove it from the oven and pour the mixture prepared earlier in it.
