It's simple and yum. Cook the caramel custard at home and sample dollops of tasty Food Recipes stuff without looking out for anything expensive in the market.
If your loved one has been sampling all the packaged custard and pudding, for that matter the jelly-pudding from the bakery and the confectionery shop, and been asking for pudding everyday, cooking caramel custard at home will take away the burden from the buying rigors every day. Here is how:
Milk: 500 ml
Sugar: 2 tablespoons for caramelizing
Ground sugar: 2 tsps
Corn flour/custar powder (vanilla flavour): optional
In a separate bowl, beat two eggs with yolk and add milk and mix the contents well. Add 2 teaspoons of sugar or add the amount which suits your taste buds. But do not make it too sweet as it will take away the charm.
You can add some corn flour or vanilla falvoured custard powder to the milk to add thickness if you do not want to use egg. You can do it by taking 1 tsp of corn flour and mix it well by adding two tsp of milk. Add this corn flour and milk content to the milk bowl. If you are using eggs, corn flour becomes optional.
Now, pour the entire caramel into another container. Add the milk with eggs.or milk with corn flour. If you are pressure cooking it, carefully select the water level at the bottom of the pressure cooker. Do not put more than 200-250 ml of water and allow the custard to cook in the steam. Do not put the weight on the pressure cooker. Cook it for 15-20 minutes.
After switching off the flame, allow the custard to settle for another 10 minutes. The best way to see if it has been cooked is to insert a knife and if it comes out clean, your custard is cooked perfect.
Keep it in the refrigerator and serve it chilled.
