Procedure:


           First of all, add 2 tbsp of pink custard powder in half cup milk and make a paste. Then add cardamom & sugar in 2 cups of milk and bring to boil. Add custard paste to boiling milk and cook for 2-3 minutes while stirring until texture is thick and smooth. Let it cool. (U can add red food color too for pink appearance).


         Once the custard cools down, add the crushed almonds and pistachios, cream pack and rose syrup and mix well. Next add the boiled vermicelli & drained fruit cocktail. Mix again. (U can use tin or fresh fruits.. but beware that fresh fruits like mango might make the custard consistency thin as with time it extracts its juice).

         Pour into the serving dish, refrigerate, garnish with crushed nuts and red colored jelly (which I didnt had..) Serve chilled :) Enjoy ur Eid !!


Note- You can omit Rose syrup or Rooh afza.
U can use any colored jelly or even 2 colors. 
A tip for making jelly - Boil the jelly powder in 1 cup of water instead of 2 cups, as mentioned on packet. 1 cup will result in an awsome jelly.
U can use plain vermicelli instead of colored. Although I lovee colored :)
