Fruit and Jelly Custard

My Mom used to make Custard Jelly for us when we were kids and she still does when we visit her. Mom used to add a layer of home-made cake to this and lots of mango pieces.  My son has friends coming over today and I decided to make it for all of them. I hope they like it as much as I and my brother did.  Simple and quick to make, it  becomes healthy with the input of fruits and milk.

 Ingredients (serves 6)

90 gms pkt strawberry jelly crystals

400 gms can fruit salad or fresh fruits (I took fresh fruits- banana, apple, pomegranate, pineapple)

10-12 Biscuits crushed (I took Almond Biscuits- you can take any of your choice)

600 ml custard

Pineapple/Strawberry/Cherry to top and serve


Divide the fruit into six glasses/bowls. Follow the instructions on the jelly packet and once the jelly is made let it cool slightly (about 5 minutes) Pour this evenly over the fruits. Keep it in refrigerator to cool.

Make custard as per the instructions on the packet. Let it cool.

Now crush the biscuits and sprinkle them over the jelly. Pour the custard over this and refrigerate for a couple of hours for the biscuits to get moist and soften.

You can place a strawberry, fresh cherry or a pineapple at the top and serve! If you have mangoes, add them on, they taste awesome!

For variation- after pouring jelly into glasses, you can place the glasses into small containers such that jelly sets on a slant.
