Custard Slices


1 cup custard   flour
1 cup sugar
3 cup coconut milk

Mix everything nicely.
Put on fire and stir till it is thick and cooked.

You must keep on stirring or the flour will settel down.
Pour in tray. Cool and cut.
Chill and serve.
This is a very simple dessert, but tasty.
No salt, no essence. It has everything in it.

Note: For variation you can add 1 tbs of cream of corn.

I think I've tasted something with fruits and custard before, but don't know how to make it. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Jenim - I have a simple Fruit Custard recipe which you could try out.....




1-cup Bird's Custard Powder

3 cups fresh milk or full cream milk

1 tin Libby's Fruit cocktail or any selection of fruits of your choice

2 Tsp sugar


Heat milk in a pan and after 10 minutes in low medium heat slowly add the custard powder little by little - keep stirring. Then add 2tsp of sugar. Let the mixture to boil (keep stirring otherwise it gets lumpy). After 5 minutes turn off the stove and let the mixture to cool down.


After 45 minutes when it's cold add the fruits along with the juice (1/2 tin). You could add extra juice, sugar and cherries if you desire. Refrigerate and serve it cold as dessert.


Tip: you could add a little milk to the custard powder and then dilute it to a smooth paste before adding a little at a time to the milk.

While I came here I remembered this quick cake recipe which I tried before & it proved to be a good tasty one! The other plus of this recipe is cooking/baking time of 5 mins!! Yes, it's just 5 mins and that too in the MW. So if you are in a mood/craving for a cake but doesn't want to spend more time in the kitchen, here is your recipe... Tongue   A quick Microwave Carrot cake recipe.

Microwave Carrot cake – recipe


Grated carrot           1 cup
Flour         & amp; nbsp;     1 cup
Condensed milk         &a mp;n bsp;   cup
Salt & soda salt     1 pinch
Baking powder              1 pinch
Sugar powder            cup
Butter                 cup
Honey         & amp; nbsp;     2 tsp
Raisins & walnuts and Cashew nut pieces     handful
Vanilla essence      2 tsp

1. First melt the butter for 20 sec in a big bowl.(I use a MW safe bowl so the butter can be melted in microwave. But it's doesn't have to be done using a MW and you can use any bowl you like for this.)
2. Add all the ingredients and mix well.
3. Butter the bowl in which you are going to bake the cake. (Tip: take some what a flat bowl which is MW safe of course. I used a bowl from my corningware set.)
4. Pour the content so it comes of the bowl
5. Bake for 5 minutes in the Microwave
6. Let it cool for few minutes and then transfer it to a plate. (Upside technique)
7. Decorate it if you like (with powered sugar) and enjoy the cake!

Yummy one with some healthy stuffs too (Carrots, Nuts..) in a very short time. Hope you all will like it too. Enjoy!! Tongue

Coconut Milk Pulav (aka) ThengaiPal Satham

Fresh (OR) canned coconut milk     - 1 1/2 cups
Mixed vegetables
(cut beans, carrot and peas)     - 1 cup
Basmati rice           - 1 cup
Green chillies        &nbs p; - 3-4 nos. (according to your spicy level.)
Garlic cloves           - 4
Cinnamon stick            - 2 (1 inch pieces)
Gloves                 - 4-5
Coriander leaves     - 1/2 bunch
Oil                 - 1-2 spoons
Roasted cashews        - A handful (for decoration)

The method is simple: First wash the rice in water, drain and keep it aside. Grind the green chilies & garlic cloves to make it into a smooth paste.
Pour oil in a big thick-bottomed vessel and when the oil is warm put the cinnamon sticks & gloves and then after about 10 seconds, put ground green paste and saut it well. Add cut vegetables at the time and saute it along with wet masala.

Now add the fresh cut coriander leaves and saut well. Mmm…it smells good already... Smile Now add salt and pour the coconut milk. Bring it back to boil. Now add the rice and mix it well. When this mixture starts to boil again, cover the vessel with lid (so it doesn't release the steam) and reduce the flame to low-medium fire. Wait for 20 minutes for the rice to get done completely. Do not open for that 20 mins time.

Switch off the stove and after 5 minutes, open and stir the rice gently. Garnish with a handful of fresh cut coriander leaves and enjoy your coconut milk Pulav! Also roast some cashews in ghee and decorate the rice along with coriander leaves.

One special thing about this rice is, this is a kids friendly recipe - Kids will like it naturally as it's not too spicy and it has that wonderful sweet taste and color because of the coconut milk you add to it.
This is one of my favorites since my childhood and I grew up eating this rice with so much love. Big smile My Mom prepares this with freshly extracted coconut milk along with lots and lots of corriander leaves!. Yum    Wink

Here is Bread Pudding for pudding lovers like me..! Big smile


400g stale bread - cut off crust, slice into triangles and butter generously on one side

75g raisins
75g sultanas
1 tsp grated orange rind

700ml UHT milk (full cream)
50g melted butter

1/4 tsp salt
75g sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
5 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon powder

Grease an oven-proof dish lightly with butter or margarine. Scatter some fruits on the bottom of the dish. Mix (B) well. Dip the bread slices in mixture, then arrange the triangles in neat rows overlapping each other.

After the first row is neatly arranged, scatter freely with (A). Arrange the next layer and place the rest of the mixed fruits over. Beat up (C) and strain through a fine sieve into the remaining milk. Blend together and pour over the bread and fruit in the dish.

Allow to stand for 30 minutes for the bread to absorb the custard mixture. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon powder and place halved red cherries around.

Bake pudding in a preheated oven at 160 C for about an hour or till set. If top of pudding is not sufficiently brown then grill it till golden.

Double fun chocolate Burfi

My usual version of making the burfi with just one color, got a make-over this time when I came across a recipe recently on the net which inspired me to try it out in a new style... Since it came out so wonderful, I wanted to share it with you all. Big smile

Maida (All purpose flour) 1 cup
Milk Powder 2 tbsp
Sugar 1-1/2 cups
Water 1 cup
Ghee 1/2 cup + 2 Tsp
Any Chocolate Drink Powder 2 tbsp
Rose/Vanilla Essence few drops
Sliced Almonds - a few for decoration.

Fry Maida in ghee on slow fire till you get its good aroma. When done add Milk Powder to it and divide it to 2 portions. Grease a plate and keep it aside.

In a thick bottomed vessel make Sugar syrup - sugar 3/4 cup + water 1/2 cup. When the syrup is 2 string consistency add the 1 portion of maida & a few drops of rose essence into it and mix well. Add a little ghee (1 spoon) and mix well and pour this on a greased plate. Level it well.

In the same Vessel, repeat the above steps.. Yes, add remaining Sugar & water and make Syrup of 2 string consistency. Now, in the Sugar Syrup add chocolate drink powder or cocoa powder plus the second portion of Maida, add few drops of essence and mix it thoroughly.

Now spread this lump on top of White layer. Level it with a little amount of Ghee. While it is still hot, Cut into pieces of any required shape and decorate it with almond slices. There is your Double fun Chocolate Burfi and Enjoy!! Smile
