To make homemade custard powder, you’ll need a few dry ingredients. Here’s a basic recipe:
- 1 cup of powdered milk (full-fat milk powder)
- 1/2 cup of cornstarch (cornflour)
- 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- A pinch of yellow food coloring (optional, for color)
In a mixing bowl, combine the powdered milk, cornstarch, granulated sugar, and salt. If you want to achieve the traditional yellow color of custard powder, add a pinch of yellow food coloring. This is optional, and you can omit it if you prefer a more natural color.
Mix all the dry ingredients thoroughly until well combined. Ensure that there are no lumps, and the color is evenly distributed if you added food coloring.
Transfer the homemade custard powder to an airtight container for storage.
Your homemade custard powder is now ready to use whenever you want to make custard. When preparing custard using this powder, follow the previous instructions mentioned in the “custard powder recipe” to create a custard sauce or dessert.
