Step by step recipe

1Pour 250 g whole milk into a saucepan on medium heat and bring to the boil.

You can add ½ vanilla pod if you like, as the mix of a little vanilla with plenty of pistachio always works very well, but this is not essential.

2Put 3 egg yolks and 50 g caster sugar into a bowl and mix immediately with a soft spatula.

Add 20 g cornflour and mix again.

7If you will not be using the custard immediately, or you wish to use it cold, you can cool it like the pros do by pouring it scalding hot onto plastic film laid on a baking sheet.

Spread out into a layer about 1/4 inch (1/2 cm) thick.

For a more or less prominent pistachio flavour, increase or decrease the weight of pistachio paste to suit your taste.
