In the spirit of Earth Day, my parents and I spent the sunny part of today re-potting the vegetable seedlings into bigger pots and sowing more seeds in our vegetable garden. It's officially Spring and I love it. The air was filled with aromatic fragrances from the cherry blossoms and it was breezy but not cold. Sayonara Winter and Hello sunny days! After all the hard work, I decided to treat myself to a quick sweet treat...custard. Along with its thick and creamy consistency, I love the various flavors that are available. When we were in India, my mom used to make it for us all the time with these powder packets manufactured by Brown and Polson and Rafhan.
Nothing like settling down with a bowl of custard after a long day of gardening!
***Quick Tip - For a more aromatic and tasty custard:
- Add powdered cardamom to a tablespoon of milk, heat it in the microwave for about 30 seconds and add the mixture to the cold milk before mixing the pudding powder to it. This infuses the cardamom flavor and makes the dessert even more tasty.
