~ When warmed through, add to the milk, the Dessert Cream, Condensed Milk and Sugar. Keep stirring.
~ Now using a Whisk, pour in the Corn Starch/Cocoa paste, and whisk all the while to prevent clumping.
~ Sprinkle in the Falooda Powder, and continue to whisk custard until it is thick and boils. (needs just one boil)
~ Remove from Stove Top and Cool Slightly Before Pouring into Individual Serving dishes.
~ Allow the Chocolate custard to cool well in the fridge (can be made a few hours before serving).
~ Top the Chocolate custard with about 2 teaspoon,OR more, of Dessert Cream and using the back of a teaspoon, gently spread the cream towards the edges and whole top of custard.
~ Decorate with any type of fruit, sliced strawberries, kiwis or even drained Canned Sliced Peaches.
~ Sprinkle over a light dusting of sifted cocoa/grated chocolate (optional)
~ Allow Chocolate Custard to rest again in fridge before serving, so the Dessert Cream may set a little.
That’s It, ENJOY!!! (💕Foodeva Marsay💕)
# If your custard has becomes clotted/lumpy, stress NOT, just strain the custard using a sieve into a new pot😉.
# You Could also use just one Large serving Dish as an option, instead of individual ones.
