About this recipe:Caramel pudding/ flan is one of the easiest desserts that can be made at home with minimal ingredients. This is a fail-proof recipe and sure will satisfy your sweet-tooth. It is generally served chill.
For making the caramel: Add sugar to a tava on low flame and leave it undisturbed
Once the sugar melts down completely and turns slightly brown add water and give a stir.
It will start bubbling up. Once it turns golden brown switch off the flame and transfer it to a round cake tin or ramekins so that it spreads evenly and fills the base. Fill a large baking pan with water (upto 1 inch)and place the ramekins/cake tin on it.
For the pudding: Beat the eggs until fluffy and add sugar and whisk until the sugar dissolves completely and becomes fluffy
Slowly add milk and vanilla and stir in to the mixture.
Transfer the pudding mixture to the cake tin/ramekin coated with caramel.
In case of an oven bake at 190°C /375°F for 35-50 minutes.
In case of pressure cooker cook on high flame for 35 minutes and then on low flame for 15-20 minutes.
Once the pudding is cooked, let it cool for while and then refrigerate for 1 hour and serve.
Do not let the sugar turn dark brown as it will give a bitter taste to the pudding
The amount of sugar entirely depends on your taste and liking.
I made it using pressure cooker and it took me 1 hour .
