How to make Caramel and Custard Kheer?

2) Heat a ceramic fry pan and add granulated sugar into it. Stir and heat it till the sugar melts to a golden amber colour. Add cold butter and cream to the sugar and stir vigorously.
3) In a bowl take the biscuits of your choice and crush them to a coarse powder. Add caramel into the crumbled biscuit and mix them together to form a caramel crumble.
4) Layer the custard flavoured kheer in a martini glass, top it off with some biscuit crumble and freshly chopped fruits
Make sure to dissolve the custard powder before adding it or it might form lumps.
While making the caramel, don't cook it too dark of a colour or it might taste bitter.
Try and choose a biscuit that isn't that sweet to balance out the caramel’s sweetness.
