After having the divine experience of a blissfull caramel custard in a pure veg.reataurant, (which was quiet surprising) , I was determined , to make an equally delicious , firm and creamy custard at home ,and yes without eggs…
Somehow, I cannot come to accept eggs in my custard or icecreams….
So decided to give it a shot.
The recipe needed agar agar….which I didnt have at home..You see I just decide to make desserts in an instinct …so have to make it with whatever I have.
So a gelatine was the other option , and decided to try it.
Results ….amazing , firm Caramel Custard ,that you can cut through with your spoon!
- 1 1/2 Cup Milk
- 1 1/2 tbsp Vanilla Custard Powder
- 1/4 Cup Sugar+4 tbsp Sugar for caramel
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp Gelatine , dissolved in 1/4 cup water and left for 1/2 hour or use Agar Agar if veg.
- 2-4 tsp Sugar
- Water as required. for caramel
Mix the custard powder with milk ,along with sugar and place it on gas stove ,on low flame ,stirring occassionally. Let the custard boil , then cook on low flame for 1 min.
Now add the gelatine mixture and cook for 3-4 mins , stirring continuously. Cool a bit and add vanilla exttract.
Mix 4 tsp sugar in 2 tsp water and let it caramelise on low flame ,in a pan. Once the sugar caramelizes,pour it in 4 moulds and spread them across the moulds. Pour the hot custard mixture in each mould and cool for atleast 2-3 hours.
To unmould, loosen the edges using a knife and invert over serving plate. Indulge!
