We all know that dessert is the best meal of the day. Whether you're planning to make a dessert for big dinner party or for your family, it's a sweet treat at the end of your luscious dinners. One such delicious dessert is dry fruit custard. It's my new favorite dessert. I've been making this so much lately, had to share the recipe with you. This frozen custard exactly taste like an ice cream. It's so good and so easy that if you eat and try this delightful dessert once, you'll make it all the time.

There are quite a few methods of making custard but I usually make it with the custard powder. I'm using vanilla flavored custard powder. I like this dessert from my childhood days. This is my go-to custard recipe, and yes - it's eggless!!

Dry fruit custard is a simple recipe and made up with few ingredients: milk, sugar, dry fruits and custard powder. Every spoonful of this dessert delivers a creamy, smooth texture with a rich taste of vanilla flavor. The best thing about this is, it doesn't requires baking. It's a very soft and creamy dessert.

You can eat a warm freshly made custard or you can refrigerate it for later. You can even play with the flavors of custard by using fruits, dry-fruits, chocolate, paan or anything you like.

Treat your guests or make for your family. This mouthwatering dessert is one of the best treats for your friends and family!! It's the most easiest dessert to make and it's healthy too!!

I have followed a very simple custard making recipe that only uses milk, sugar, dry fruits and custard powder (vanilla flavor). Do try it, it's very delicious!
