i have posted a lot of custard recipes till now in my blog, and i was getting a lot of requests to post a basic custard powder recipe. moreover, the store-bought are generally expensive for the minimal set of ingredients it contains. hence i thought of posting this basic recipe with the available ingredients at home. in other words, i have used the combination of powdered sugar, cornflour and milk powder for this recipe. however, the store-bought contains more ingredient like wheat maize and artificial flavour enhancer. moreover, some even have egg in it, to provide more creaminess. particularly, these ingredients are not required for a basic one and hence i have skipped it to make a basic homemade custard flour.

furthermore, i would like to highlight some more important tips, suggestions and variations to homemade custard flour. firstly, even though the sugar and milk powder is a key ingredient for this flour. but the corn starch or corn flour plays a major role in this recipe. it helps to thicken the custard milk and achieves more creaminess. secondly, you may experiment with the flavours you add to it. i have used a basic vanilla extract, but you may also add strawberry essence or cocoa powder for a chocolate flavour. for strawberry, you may need to add red food colour and vanilla essence for cocoa powder. lastly, you need to store this in an airtight container for a longer and better shelf life.
