Custard is one of the most popular desserts in many countries. Though it is said to have been introduced by the English, it soon became a part of many other cuisines. Traditional ingredients include egg yolks, milk or cream, vanilla, and sugar. Cornstarch, flour, or gelatin can also be added.
Earlier, the process of making the custard was complex, only people who had great expertise in cooking were able to achieve the perfect consistency. However, nowadays people do not have to strive very hard. With the introduction of custard powder in the year 1837, the process has become much simpler.

Take milk in a sauce pan and add custard powder to it and mix well. Keep it on a high flame and stir continuously to avoid formation of lumps.
When the mixture starts boiling, slightly lower the flame and add three tablespoons of sugar. Continue stirring till the liquid becomes thick.
Switch off the flame and transfer the custard to a flat plate to cool off.
Take whipping cream in a small bowl and whisk it with the remaining (1½ tablespoons) sugar.
Once the custard has cooled completely, strain throughout sieve into a bowl. Combine a part of the whipping cream to it and stir well.

Pour the custard over these fruits and serve by placing some more fruits as well as the remaining whipped cream on the top.
