  • 2 cups Full Fat Milk
  • 1/2 cup Cream (refer notes)
  • 1 tbsp Custard Powder
  • 1/2-3/4 cups Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/4 tsp Pumpkin Spice powder (refer notes)
  1. Take the milk and cream in a saucepan. Before turning on the heat take out 2 tbsp of the milk-cream mixture and add to the custard powder. Make a slurry and set aside.

  2. Now switch on the gas and bring the milk mixture to a rolling boil. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Do remember to stir the milk every now and then so that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.

  3. Let it boil for another 5 mins and then add in the prepared custard powder slurry. Give it a mix. In another 5 mins you will observe that the milk mixture is starting to thicken.

  4. Finally, add in the pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice powder. Mix everything well and stir to achieve the desired thickness. Your super simple pumpkin custard or kaddu ki kheer is all ready to be devoured. 

  5. Enjoy it warm or refrigerate until chilled and serve.
