Custard Powder

Preparation Time : 2 mins      |      Cooking Time : 5 mins 

Ingredients :       




Sugar 1 cup
Milk powder 1/4 cup
Cornstarch 1/4 cup
Salt 1 tsp
Vanilla bean 2 no.
Yellow food color 1 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 makevanilla scented sugaror 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.
