Ingredients For Preparing Custard
• Custard Powder
• Evaporated Milk (Peak Milk) (optional)
• Water (Cold and Hot)
• Sugar or honey (to taste)

Preparation Of Custard Meal
• Put some custard powder into a medium size bowl. Custard rises during preparation so you should use a bowl big enough to contain the custard meal in its risen state.

• Start mixing by pouring a small quantity of cold water into the bowl of custard powder. Stir and add some more water till you have a medium consistency with no lumps.

• Put a kettle of water to boil. Make sure the water will be enough to make the custard meal. It is better to have too much water than not have enough.

• When the water starts boiling, stir the custard mix very well because some of the custard may have settled at the bottom of the bowl.

• If not stirred properly, this is the major cause of lumps when you start making the custard.

• Now, pour the boiling water slowly but steadily in a circular motion into the bowl of custard and stir at the same time.

• Pouring the hot water slowly and stirring at the same is the key to achieving a smooth and lumps free custard meal.

• Once you see the custard setting, stop stirring and reduce the flow of water you are pouring till the custard has completely set.

• Set the kettle aside and stir the custard very well. If it is too thick for you, add more hot water. But be careful else the custard will become watery.

• Next, add the evaporated milk and some sugar or honey to taste and stir together. Custard is ready. Serve with tomato omelette, fried eggs, pancakes or fried plantain.
