Custard Jelly Tart RecipeWritten by Archana Doshi
The Custard Jelly Tart Recipe is a classic simple tricolored delicacy that was a childhood favorite dessert. This jelly tart is a three layered dessert, with a biscuit crust at the bottom, custard with fruits in the middle and your favorite jelly on the top. Simply delicious.
Makes: 8 to 10 servings
Total Time: 60 Minutes
3 cups of plain marie biscuit (made into crumbs using a food processor)
1/2 cup butter
Ingredients for the Jelly Layer
1 packet of a strawberry jelly mix
Ingredients for the Vanilla Custard Layer
5 tablespoons custard powder
4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar (extra if you like it sweeter)
Ingredients for the Biscuit Layer
Make crumbs of the biscuit using the food processor. Lightly grease a square 8 inch pan. Combine the biscuit crumbs and butter in a bowl. Using a flat spatula or a glass, press the crumb mixture into the base of the pan. Refrigerate the biscuit crust for 1 hour.
Place the custard powder, milk and sugar in a saucepan and stir well until the flour is dissolved well. Turn the heat to medium, stir the mixture continuously until the custard begins to thicken. Making sure there are no lumps formed. Once thickened, turn off the heat and allow the custard to cool completely.
Prepare the jelly according to the instructions and allow it to cool slightly.and pour the jelly mixture on top of the custard mixture. Now refrigerate for 4 hours.
Once the vanilla custard is cooled after it has been prepared, spread the custard on top of the biscuit mixture and refrigerate for 2 hours. You could mix some fruits like pineapple into the custard to add more flavor and taste.
After a couple of hours when the custard layer is set, pour the jelly mixture on top of the custard mixture and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours until the jelly has set completely.
Once the Custard Jelly Tart is set, cut the tart into small squares and serve.
