DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the guavas till cooked.
  • Cool.
  • Remove the centre pulp with seeds and cut the outer fleshy part (with the skin) into bite sized pieces.
  • Strain the inside pulp through a metal sieve.
  • Mix with the fruit.
  • Bring the 4 cups milk to a boil and then simmer for around 2 minutes.
  • Add the sugar and stir till sugar dissolves.
  • Dissolve the cornflour in the 4 tbsp milk (use more if need be) and add to the simmering milk.
  • Stir well so that no lumps form.
  • Add the vanilla essence once the custard thickens.
  • Add the guava and mix.
  • Taste for sweetness and adjust accordingly.
  • The custard should not get too thick as it is meant to be like a stew (the consistency of pancake batter with the guava pieces floating in it).
  • So take it off the fire before it thickens too much. (But you can make it thick if you prefer it that way)
  • Serve chilled.
  • Enjoy!
