  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 tbsp custard powder, vanilla flavor, or any other flavor of your choice
  • 3 tbsp sugar or as per desired sweetness
  • 1 Jelly dessert packet
  • 1.5 cups of chopped  strawberries ( You may use assorted fruits,  berries, grapes & kiwis)


  1. Prepare Jelly as per package instructions. Keep it aside to set.
  2. Once it is lukewarm, pour about 1/4 cup in serving glasses or bowl. Add some strawberries .
  3. Keep the glasses slantingly in a muffin tray or use any bowl.
  4. I kept in a rice full plate for the cross jelly look. It’s totally optional.Leave it to set completely in the refrigerator.
  5. To prepare the custard: Dissolve the custard powder in about 1/4 cup of milk (room temperature/cold), mix well to form a smooth paste. Set aside. Boil in the remaining milk along with the sugar in a saucepan.
  6. Add the prepared custard paste in the boiling milk and heat further for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously.
  7. To avoid the skin on top of the custard, place a parchment paper/ cling wrap on the surface of the custard before it sets. Refrigerate it until further use.
  8. To assemble: pour about 3 tablespoons of the custard over the set jelly, top with some strawberries.
