Custard Fruit Salad

Chilled Milk based Indian Custard Fruit Salad is made with variations such as some people make it with Condensed Milk and some add Vanilla Ice cream to sweetened the milk quickly but for authentic flavor, I prefer to use Custard Powder these days. Vanilla Custard powder can be found at Indian grocery and it is 100% vegetarian/vegan friendly.
