Tips:
·         Try to use at least 4.5 % Fat Milk for a Creamy & Yummy looking Custard!
·         Can add Bananas as well but make sure that they are Mixed with the Custard just before Serving, as they tend to lose Water easily
·         Diced Apple and Pears should be Soaked in Water to prevent Discoloration.
It is Easy to Remove Pomegranate Seeds Soaked in Water as the Waste particles will float in water and can be discarded easily
Almonds can also be used this way- Microwave in 1/2 Cup Water for Couple of Minutes, Cool & Peel for Quick Usage
Chopped Dates can be added

Variation:
Keep the Custard to Chill in the Refrigerator.
Garnish with Dry Fruits, Cherries & Serve Chilled!
