Strawberry Stew with Banana Custard

A tongue-tickling stew of juicy strawberries with sugar and a squeeze of lemon, is layered with a creamy banana custard made with real mashed bananas, custard powder and milk.

The mellow sweetness of bananas contrasts beautifully with the sharp tangy-sweet taste of strawberries, just as the soft texture of the custard contrasts with the pulpy mouth-feel of the stew.

The two are made for each other, and the Strawberry Stew with Banana Custard tastes just awesome, especially when served chilled.

You can try other strawberry based delights like Strawberry Margarita and Strawberry Paneer Pie .
