It is usually served hot, poured over desserts or used as a filling for some pies and cakes. Custard is also used as a base for some savoury dishes around the world.
I am going to show you how to prepare Nigerian Custard that is thick and free of lumps. So relax and continue reading.
Below is a detailed and easy recipe to make Nigerian Custard.
Ingredients For Making Nigerian Custard:
• Custard powder
• Evaporated milk (optional)
• Water (cold and hot)
• Sugar or honey (to taste)
Directions For Making Nigerian Custard:
• Put some Custard powder into a medium size bowl. It rises during preparation, so use a bowl big enough to contain the meal in its risen state.
• Pour a small quantity of cold water into the bowl of custard powder. Stir and add some more water till you have a medium consistency with no lumps.
• Bring some water to boil. Make sure the water will be enough. It is better to have too much water than not have enough.
• When the water starts boiling, stir the Custard mix very well because some of it may have settled at the bottom of the bowl.
Tip: If not stirred properly, this is the major cause of lumps when you start making the custard.
• Now, pour the boiling water slowly but steadily in a circular motion into the bowl and stir at the same time.
Tip: Pouring the hot water slowly and stirring at the same is the key to achieving a smooth and lumps free Nigerian Custard.
• Once you see it setting, stop stirring and reduce the flow of water you are pouring till it completely set.
• Stir the Custard very well and add more water, if it is too thick for you. But be careful, so it does not become watery.
• Now, add the evaporated milk and some sugar or honey to taste and stir together. That's it, your Nigerian Custard is ready.
• Nigerian Custard can be served with tomato omelette, fried eggs, or Nigerian Pancake. Enjoy!
