Dulce de Leche Recipe - How to Make Dulce de Leche in Pressure Cooker

This was on my mind for a very long time. I always wanted to taste this, i have seen this many blogs and all through the internet and colour of that made me to try it immediately and wanted to taste it..And i am telling it is just delicious, so good..I am a big fan of all things caramel and this one rocked the spot..

There are many versions of making this, the one which i tried is in pressure cooker because it is time saving, efficient and easy. If you dont have a pressure cooker put the can in a sauce pan, cover it with water and boil it for 2 to 3 hours. But i found this method is quick to make.. And the colour of the ddl you want totally depends on the time you cook them, The more you simmer the pot the more thick and dark it gets. But in my opinion 30 mins is perfect.

Dont have a pressure cooker, No worries..For other options check these blogs

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 30 mins
Cooling Time : Over night


Sweetened Condensed Milk - Whole Can as many as you need


Put condensed milk can sidewards in a big pressure cooker, Cover it completely with water and cover it and put whistle.

Put it on heat and after the first whistle simmer the flame and cook or 30 mins.

Turn off the heat and let the steam go all by itself.

Open the cooker and remove the can from the water, put it over counter top and leave it to cool completely. I left it overnight.

Now open and dig into it straight away or use in your recipes.

Once opened, transfer the mix to a air tight container and store in fridge for many months.

Take your condensed milk
