Servings 4 People


  • 1 cup Plain Vanilla Custard
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Curd
  • 1 Tart Shell Pre-Baked
  • 1/2 cup Whipping Cream Chilled


  1. Make plain Vanilla Custard using some Full-Cream Milk and Vanilla Custard Powder. We need 1 cup of Custard so you might need 1 liter of Milk to get that. 

    Let it chill and thicken so that we get a hard set custard.

  2. Once the custard has cooled down completely, even better if chilled add the Lemon Curd and whisk it thoroughly. 

  3. Take the pre-baked Tart shell and fill it with the Lemon Curd-Custard filling upto 2/3 of it. 

    Allow it to set in refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

  4. Meanwhile whisk the chilled Whipping Cream with granulated sugar and a few drops of Vanilla Extract and zest of Lime. 

  5. Before serving decorate the tart with some of the whipped cream. You may also fill a piping bag fitted with star tip and make florets of the top of the tart.
