Quick Fruit Dessert

A quick dessert. I made it today to celebrate India’s 62nd anniversary of Independence. Okay, the colors are not the customary saffron, white and green. But nonetheless, it’s something special to celebrate this very special day! The idea (for the dessert) is again my Mom’s.

Ingredients: (Serves 4)

Custard (Made by using 350 ml milk, 2 tbsp sugar, and 1 ½ tbsp vanilla custard powder)

Arrowroot Biscuits, crushed in a blender: 8

Sponge Cake, crushed: 1 cup

Bananas: 2, sliced

Apple: 1, peeled and cut in small cubes

Pomegranate: 1


- Take a bowl, and spread half the biscuit powder. Then top it with half the cake

- Arrange half of the banana slices, apple cubes, and pomegranate

- Pour the rest of the biscuit mixture, and then the cake

- Pour the custard

- Arrange the rest of the fruit on the top

- Set in the refrigerator for atleast 2 hours before serving
