I had this recipe book marked for a very long time from Divine Taste and had planned to make it for Valentines Day. We had invited one of our friends for a small dinner party on Sunday. Milo said this was the right time to make this custard. I gave it a try and it was liked by all. For more creamy custard, use high fat milk. I had skimmed milk at hand so I tried it with that. It turned out yummy. It had a soft creamy texture and was absolutely luscious. Does not involve much cooking time and the best part about it is it has no eggs. Do try it out and let me know your comments……
200 ml fresh cream (I used Amul fresh cream),
300 ml milk,
1 cup warm milk,
½ cup coco powder,
½ cup corn flour,
Sugar (I used 1 cup approx. You may vary it as per your taste)
Mix the cream and 300 ml milk well and keep it on a low flame.
Blend well the coco powder, corn flour, sugar and milk. Keep mixing this with a spoon for around 5 to 10 minutes.
When the milk cream mixture comes to a boil, pour in the coco corn flour mixture and keep stirring.
Let the mixture cook well, Do not stop stirring else the custard will get burnt.
When the mixture comes to a boil, switch off the gas and pour the hot custard in glass bowls.
Let it cool for some time. Place the bowls in the refrigerator for a minimum of 3 to 4 hours.
Drizzle with chocolate syrup and serve cold.
