With the scorching heat, the yearning for something cold and creamy becomes a persistent one.
While juices, shakes and mocktails are an option for quenching your thirst, when you are hungry and want to replace a hot meal, more solid and filling dishes are called for.
Custards are a boon to those of you who'd like a cold, quick-fix meal. You can also choose to serve them as dessert to complete a meal.
