1. I have used Ossoro vanilla custard essence. If you're using normal vanilla essence, please use 1 tsp.
2. I have used ½ cup granulated sugar and powdered it. If you are using powdered sugar, you need to use 1 cup (100 grams).
3. Make sure you use fresh ingredients as that determines the shelf life of the custard powder.
4. Colour is added to give the custard a hint of yellow. You can totally skip it.
5. You can use icing sugar instead of sugar. You can use icing sugar upto.1 cup.
6. Blending the final mixture in food processor or blender will give a smooth and well blended mixture, especially the food colour and essence.
