How to Make Thandai Custard

HideShow Media
Crush the cookies and mix melted butter into the crushed biscuits, ensuring all the crumbs are well coated with butter.
In a mason jar, layer the cookie mix at the bottom, pressing it down with a spoon, and then refrigerate the jars for 10-15 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine custard powder and 3/4 cup of milk. In a saucepan over medium heat, add 1 and 1/4 cups of milk, thandai powder, gulkand, and sugar.
Bring this to a slight boil, then pour the custard mixture into the saucepan. Keep whisking until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens.
Allow the custard to cool down at room temperature and cover it with a lid. Once cooled, pour it into the prepared jars and layer it with chopped dates.
