Custard Powder






Preparation Time : 2 mins      |      Cooking Time : 5 mins 


Ingredients :       

      
Ingredients
Measurements
Sugar1 cup
Milk powder1/4 cup
Cornstarch1/4 cup
Salt1 tsp
Vanilla bean2 no.
Yellow food color1 pinch
        
​Method :
  1. Cut the vanilla beans in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds using a knife. 
  2. Rub the seeds with sugar & save the beans. Then the mixture looks a bit like sand.
  3. ​Add milk powder, cornstarch, yellow food color & salt to the mixture. Mix & blend well in a blender.
  4. Cut the beans into 3-4 pieces and place them in the container where the powder'll store. 
  5. ​Pour the powder in that air tight container. The vanilla beans will continue to add flavor to the powder.

​Notes :

  • Never throw away the beans after scrape out, either bury them in a jar of sugar to make vanilla scented sugar or put in the custard powder container to make the powder more pimped up by vanilla flavor.
  • Though ​this homemade powder doesn’t look as 'yellow' as the store brought, but when it is added with any liquid it comes up more yellow.
