In a small bowl, add 50ml milk along with custard powder. Mix well and keep aside.

In a deep non-stick pan, add remaining 500ml milk and bring to the boil. Transfer a ladle of the hot milk to a small bowl, add saffron and let it infuse for 5 minutes. Return the saffron milk to the boiling milk and mix well.

Add sugar and mix again. Add the custard mix from step 1 slowly into the milk and stir well until thick. Make sure no lumps are formed. Once the milk becomes thick, remove from heat and keep aside to cool for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes, transfer the custard to a bowl, add apple, kiwi, banana and pomegranate seeds. Mix well.
