Tips to make best banana Pudding: 

Carmelized banana: I had caramelised banana to get the soft sugar coated bananas as they taste delicious, But you can simply slice the bananas and add in to make banana Pudding.

Egg yolks: make sure to whisk the egg yolks to get the pale yellow colour.

Custard sauce to egg yolk: pour the custard sauce into the egg yolks while whisking the egg yolks in another hand.

Biscuits: I have used biscuits, you may also use vanilla wafers/ graham crackers.
