After that, add the custard powder & chilled milk paste to boiled milk. Using a whisk, mix it well so as no lumps remain.

Transfer the pan back on stove and cook it on slow flame for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly. For this dessert we would need thin consistency custard.

Keep stirring constantly as custard sticks to bottom of the pan and it may burn. Remove it from flame and strain through a sieve.

Let it cool a bit and sprinkle sugar granules on top of cooled custard to prevent forming of thick creamy layer over the custard.

Refrigerate this custard to chill for few hours.

 

To assemble

To begin with, take 4 rajgira Chikki pieces. Smear prepared whipped cream over it.
