Apple Mango Custard with Crunchy Oats

Its Summer!!! The things that come to my mind with Summer are Ice creams, Custards and Milk shakes. This time Nivedhanams blogspot was my partner to the Cyber Potluck Party. She made delicious Oats and Strawberry Milkshake, which inspired me to make this custard.
Apple Mango Custard with Crunchy Oats

Prep. Time - 10 mins
Cooking Time - 2 hrs

Ingredients
For Custard
1 1/2 cup Milk
1 Tbsp Custard Powder
1/4th cup Sugar
1/4th cup chopped Almonds
1 Tbsp Mixed chopped nuts
1/2 cup fresh mixed fruits
 (I used Mango & apples)
Crunchy Oats
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup sugar
For Garnish
Dessicated coconut flakes
silvered almonds

Take 1 Tbsp of Cold milk in a small bowl. Add custard powder to it and mix well.  
Boil rest of the milk. Once the milk is boiled, lower the heat add Sugar, Custard Powder Mixture.  Stir continuously for 5 minutes. Add dry fruits and mix them well. Turn off the gas. 
Let the Custard to cool. Once put the mixture into the freezer.  Allow the mixture to settle in freezer for almost 2 hours. 
Meanwhile, grease a small plate.  Caramelize the sugar and when sugar is caramelized add oats and mix well. (You can also do a mixture of sugar and jaggery). Spread the mixture on the greased plate and make it uniform. With a sharp knife make horizontal and vertical cuts to form squares. Allow it to set. Once they are cool and all set, crush them into small chunks. 

Now when the custard is set, take a glass, put the oats chunks, scoop out or pour the custard mixture and top it with nuts and coconut flakes. 

Enjoy this pretty simple but delicious custard!!
