Caramel Custard Recipe
Welcome your kids by stirring up this quick and tangy drink to refresh them after a tiring game day.
- Eggs: 2
- Milk: 500 ml
- Sugar: 2 tablespoons for caramelizing
- Ground sugar: 2 tsps
- Corn flour/custard powder (vanilla flavor): optional
Take 2 table spoons of sugar in a saucepan and caramelize it on a low flame by constantly stirring. Once the sugar turns light brown in color, switch off the flame and immediately take the saucepan off the stove.
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.
