Mango Fruit Custard

This is something we like to order all the time as a dessert in Indian restaurants. The consistency will vary from a runny custard with fruit to being almost frozen like ice cream. But it is always delicious.

Usually this dessert is prepared with custard powder. I am making it more accessible to the American cook by substituting instant pudding mix, and  it works fins.

Some recipes will include apple, but I have left it to the mango and fruit cocktail and am very happy with it. Feel fee to add some different fruits if you don’t like canned. Just know the usual fruits generally have grapes as part of the mix.

I would not omit mango. It is fantastic.
