fruit custard recipe

quick, delicious and healthy – that’s how I would describe fruit custard recipe. It takes less than 5 mins to prepare this recipe. Only as much time you need to cut and prepare the vegetables. I have directly used custard cream available rather than making it with custard powder and milk. Its better in taste and sometimes even cheaper.
