Sweet nothing

For  a long long time now i have loved cooking. The inspiration here has been my Maa. She is definitely the most fantastic cook ever. Belonging to a foodie family helped too!! As i grew up and started my experiments in the kitchen i could sense that it would give me an immense sense of joy to accomplish cooking a dish. There have ofcourse been many hits and misses but i would continue with my experiments. Then love and marriage happened and thankfully i have ended up with a man who loves food and encourages  my stints in the kitchen! So now finally after all these years have mustered up my spirits to do something related to food and cooking that constitutes such an important part of my life in a focussed manner. Hence the idea of this blog.

Today i am sharing a recipe that has been a personal favourite coz this was one of the first dessert i learnt making as a schoolgirl .

The Caramel Pudding

Ingredients :

Eggs - 3
Condensed milk - half tin
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp

Method :

Mix together the eggs ,condensed milk and vanilla essence. Whisk together with blender for 2 mins till it becomes airy and light.

In an aluminium cake tin,  put in the sugar and some water and put it on the stove for the sugar to caramelise. Once the sugar starts changing colour remove from heat.

Pour the egg mixture into the tin.

You can now steam bake the pudding in an oven for 40 mins or steam it in the pressure cooker for half an hr.

Once done ,let it cool and then serve chilled.

This is one of those easy breezy desserts that my 4 yr old son loves too just as i did as a kid!!!!
