I love Caramel Custard(Flan) a lot but then it is a little long process and has to be left in the refrigerator to set...I don't have patience...
That too when i was craving for caramel...
I went to dear google to find for me and found this simple recipe...
Its yummiest..if you love caramel you will die for this :P
So i took it from here
I halved the recipe also replaced cornstarch with Vanilla Custard powder :)
milk - 2 cups
Vanilla Custard Powder - 3 tbsp
vanilla extract - 1 tbsp
salt - a pinch
sugar - 1/2 cup
In a bowl, whisk 1/2 cup of the milk with the Vanilla Custard Powder with vanilla and salt until smooth.
In a big vessel, add the sugar with 3 tbsp of water and bring to a boil.
Cook over moderately high heat, undisturbed, until a deep amber caramel forms.please don't move away from the stove at all till the caramel is ready
Remove from the stove immediately...Gradually add in the 1 1/2 cups of milk.
Now the mixture turns deep dark color..which is good
Now put the vessel back to the stove,till the milk boils and darkens even more.
Now mix in the custard mix and stir in till the the contents thicken and switch of the stove
Refrigerate for 2 hours and serve
I had it the condensed milk :D
