CARAMEL CUSTARD

Caramel custard is a dessert, which is made of common ingredients like sugar, eggs and milk. It can be easily digested and it is a healthy dish for kids that contain lots of protein. It can be steamed in a pressure cooker or can be baked. My kid smera just drooled over the dish when i serve it along with whipped cream.





INGREDIENTS

350 ml Milk.

4 tbs Sugar.

1 Egg.

1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence.

Pinch of Cinnamon Powder.

FOR CARAMEL.

4 tbs sugar.



METHOD.

Caramel Base: Heat a pan and add sugar on medium heat till the sugar starts to melt. Make sure not to stir. Its enough to shake the pan to spread the heat. Later when the sugar starts melting into brown colour, immediately pour it on to the serving bowl evenly and let it set for few minutes. Take care not to let the syrup boil or burnt else it will taste bitter

Meanwhile beat egg and sugar together along with vanilla essence.

Add milk and cinnamon powder while stirring to form a custard mix. Pour the mix over the set caramel. It should be till three fourth full in the baking bowl.

Bake them to 350 degree for 40 to 45 min in a shallow tray full of water. Later take them out and let it cool and place them into refrigerator for an hour.

Just before serving, loosen the edges of custard with the help of knief and turn them over carefully and lift the bowl.

Decorate with whipped cream.

Hey suma,
Iam going to prepare this but,I have a doubt

"Add milk and cinnamon powder while stirring to form a custard mix" in this step should I use stove?

Sorry for stupid doubt :( :(
