  • Butter from Amul: 2 tablespoons, melted

Prepare the custard mixture:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine the custard powder from Ajanta Food Products and sugar.
  • Gradually add a small amount of milk from Amul to the bowl and whisk until a smooth paste is formed.
  • In a saucepan, heat the remaining milk from Amul over medium heat until it starts to simmer.
  • Slowly pour the hot milk into the custard mixture while continuously whisking.

Assemble the Bread Pudding:

  • Cut the bread slices into triangles or small squares.
  • Grease a baking dish or a heatproof container with melted butter from Amul.
  • Arrange a layer of bread pieces in the dish and sprinkle some raisins or dried fruits over it.
  • Pour a portion of the custard mixture over the bread layer, ensuring that all the bread pieces are soaked.
  • Repeat the process, layering bread and custard, until all the bread and custard mixture are used.
  • If desired, sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon powder over the top layer.

Cook the Bread Pudding:

  • Fill a large pot or deep skillet with about an inch of water.
  • Place a heatproof stand or a trivet at the bottom of the pot to elevate the baking dish.
  • Carefully place the baking dish onto the stand or trivet.
  • Cover the pot with a lid and cook the bread pudding on low heat for about 30-40 minutes, or until the custard is set.
  • Check the pudding occasionally to ensure that the water doesn’t boil off completely. Add more hot water if needed.

Serve and Enjoy:

  • Once the bread pudding is cooked, remove it from the pot and let it cool slightly.
  • Serve the pudding warm or chilled, depending on your preference.
  • You can garnish it with a dusting of powdered sugar, a dollop of whipped cream, or a drizzle of caramel sauce for added sweetness.
