Caramel Custard is many of us favourite..It is a egg custard recipe which is served with it own caramel sauce..So good cold, but some like it warm too..
Normally making of caramel custard is pretty complicated..It is baked in oven over a water bath. And setting it in fridge till it is completely cold then unmoulding it and serving. I am sure it will take atleast 6 to 8 hours from making to eating..But this recipe can be made in under 15 mins and you just need the chilling time alone..
Cooking Time : 5 to 7 mins
Serves : 4 to 5
Eggs – 3
Sugar – 5 tblspn powdered
Vanilla Essence – 2 tsp
Milk – 300 ml or 1 1/4 cup
Sugar – 2 tblspn
Water – 1 tblspn + 1 tblspn
Start by making the caramel. Take 2 tblspn sugar and 1 tblspn water in a sauce pan. Heat it and swirl the pan to disolve the sugar. Once it is disolved, boil it till the colour changes to golden. Now take it off the heat and add in remaining 1 tblspn water and mix well. The caramel will become little watery now. Pour this into the bowl and set aside.
Now take eggs, powdered sugar, vanilla and whisk well. Add in milk and mix well. Sieve this.
Pour this into the custard bowl. Take caramel will settle in the bottom as it cooks..
Microwave it for 5 to 7 mins on high power. It may look giggly when u take out of the microwave, but it will set as it cools. My pudding cooked in 7 mins.
Now take it out and set aside for 5 to 10 mins. Now chill this for 1 hour to 2 hours.
Invert it and cut and serve.
1) you can make this without the caramel part, it will give your plain vanilla custard.
2)When you pour the custard over the caramel, it may look like mixing. But later the caramel will settle in the bottom.
3)Each oven will vary, my oven took 7 mins. So keep an eye on it from 5 mins.
4)It may look giggly when u take out of the microwave, but it will set as it cools.
