Be it the fleeting minutes of romance that you had with your beloved or those special moments of emotional connect that you felt with your partner, every fond memory that you create goes on to last forever.

INGREDIENTS:FOR TART SHELL-
Biscuits- 25-26,crushed ( I have used Good Day biscuits. You can use whatever is available with you)
Butter- 3/4th cup,meltedFOR CUSTARD-
Custard powder- 3 tablespoon
Milk- 700 milliliter
Sugar- 2 tablespoon FOR BERRY TOPPING-
Strawberries- 7-8, roughly chopped
Blueberries- 1/2 cup
Sugar- 1/2 cupDIRECTIONS:
TO MAKE THE TART SHELL-
We will start by making the Tart Shell.
For that either crush the biscuits with the help of a rolling pin or you can crush them in your food processor too.
Combine the crushed biscuits and melted butter.
Make sure all the biscuits crumbs are evenly coated in butter.
Press down the mixture in bottom and to the sides of the tart pan.
(I have used a 13.5”x4” rectangular Tart Pan).
Let it rest in the refrigerator for 40-50 minutes.
TO MAKE THE CUSTARD-
Take 1/2 cup milk in a bowl. Add in the Custard Powder.
Mix well to smooth consistency. There should be no lumps.
Meanwhile, in a pan put remaining milk and put it on low heat.
Once it comes to a boil add the custard mix and sugar.
Keep stirring the mixture until it comes to boil and thickens.
Turn off the heat. Transfer the prepared custard in another bowl and let it cool down a bit.
Once it comes to room temperature cover the bowl with cling wrap so that the cling film is touching the upper surface of the custard. This will prevent the formation of thick upper layer.
Keep it in fridge for some time.
TO MAKE THE TOPPING-
Cook strawberries, blueberries and sugar in a saucepan on medium heat.
Cook until the sugar melts completely and the mixture is of saucy consistency.
Let it cool.HOW TO ASSEMBLE THE TART-
Take out Tart and Custard from the fridge.
Whisk the custard little bit.
Pour it over the tart and keep in fridge to set.
Just before serving pour the Berry Sauce Topping over the prepared Custard Tart.
Enjoy the yummy treat with your loved ones!!
