Mixed Fruit Trifle

Gautam and Shyam Mama called up to say they were visiting in the evening. The boy had finished his engineering and just started working for a small IT services company. He is traveling  a lot already so when he was in Chennai for work he decided to meet us as he was passing through Blr. I had to make something that would make a Mumbai young man happy. So I served him Onion crackers with tomato salsa and this trifle. He loved both as you don't get those onion crackers in Mumbai and trifle makes anyone happy. Really!

Ingredients

4 Good day biscuits
3 cups Mixed cut fruit bits ( apple, chikoo, banana, pineapple)
1/4 cup Orange juice
2 teaspoon Orange zest
2 cups Free flow Custard
1/2 cup fresh cream
1 tablespoon sugar or substitute
4 orange slices to decorate

For the custard

Use 3 tablespoons of custard powder dissolve in 1/4 cup cold milk. Boil 1/2 litre milk. Mix in the custard paste. Cook for 2-3 mins till thick. Cool completely at room temp and then use for the trifle.

To assemble the trifle. Take 4 glass tumblers or European wine glasses, these make perfect sized servings of this treat. Put 1 Good day biscuit in each. Fill up half of the tumbler with diced mixed fruits. Sprinkle a large pinch of orange zest on it. Use up the 2 teaspoons of zest. Pour the orange juice over the fruits to avoid oxidizing and add the citrusy kick. Pour 1/2 cup of custard into each tumbler. Lastly mix the sugar in the cream and beat it till light. Dollop out the cream into 4 servings. Decorate with sliced orange. Chill for couple of hours and serve.

This dessert is decadent.
