My two favorite items together, Milky, Vanilla flavored Fruit salad and Pooris.......give me these two together, and there is no need for anything else!
I made this on Monday especially for my grandmother who came from India last week. Since this would be her first time visiting my home after I got married, I wanted to make something special....along with this, I made the typical Gujarati fare: Kadhi, Tuver-Lilva and Eggplant Shaak, Varoda ( recipe coming next week), and rice with the usual papads and pickles.
Here is what you need to make this Summer favorite of mine......
- 1 Liter- Whole Milk
- 1/2 cup- Extra Milk
- 2.5 tbsp- Custard powder ( I used Vanilla Flavored one)
- Sugar - to your taste
- Mixed fruits: I used apples, grapes, Chiku (sapota), Pomegranates, and bananas
- 1 tsp: Cardamom powder
- A handful of roasted almonds and Pistachios
- A pinch of saffron- crushed
- 1 tsp: Pure Vanilla Extract
Meanwhile, cut the fresh fruits into small pieces, roast the almonds and pistachios in the microwave till lightly browned. Add the cut up fruits, and nuts along with the saffron, and cardamom powder to the cooled milk.
Let the milk cool completely before serving. Enjoy with pooris or on its own as a refreshing Summer drink!
