Custard Pudding With Jelly

Ramadhan is the time when most people love to eat all sweet stuff & we're of no exception. Hence, during the first weekend of Ramadhan, I made these custard pudding with jelly. They're mmmm deliciously sweet & so smooth flowing down the throat.

Try it and you'll know what I mean.

I took the recipe from Koleksi Resipi Diana.


(For the jelly)

1 box of jelly (any flavour you like)

(For the custard pudding)

4½ cups water

½ cup sugar

1 cup custard powder

1 cup evaporated milk

½ cup cocktail juice

(For decoration)

1 tin mixed cocktail


(For the jelly)

1. Prepare jelly as per the instructions on the box.

2. Pour into containers & put them aside to harden.

(For the custard pudding)

1. In a saucepan over a small fire, mix custard powder, sugar & water.

2. Stir it slowly.

3. When it starts to boil, pour evaporated milk & cocktail juice.

4. Keep on stirring until the custard mixture is thick & shiny.

5. Remove from fire.

6. Pour the custard mixture into the awaiting jelly in the containers.

7. Cool them in the fridge.

8. Serve with the mixed cocktail.

Mmmm... sedap!

It was a rush job as I only did the icing after sahur. I've got not enough time to fill the cookies, just the outline.

10. Blend using the mixer on high speed for 15 minutes.

11. Transfer to the prepared tin and spread evenly.

12. Let it harden for about 2 hours but don't put in the fridge!

13. Cut with a wet knife and cut to whatever shapes that you prefer.

14. Dust the cut marshmallow with the balance sifted cornstarch & icing sugar.

15. Keep it in a container.
