Eggless Caramel Custard

Caramel custard is usually made with caramelized sugar, eggs, milk, and vanilla.

 I have today made and eggless version using agar agar and custard power.

Ingredients :

1/2 litre.............milk
2 tbsp ..............agar agar
2 tbsp .............custard powder
1/2 tsp.............vanilla essence
2 to 3 tbsp .............sugar for caramalization

Method :

Take a heavy bottom pan put sugar and 1/2 tsp water and 
caramalize it till golden brown.

Add some water to it and pour it in individual moulds or a single big mould and swirl the mould so that the inside gets well coated with caramalized sugar. It will immediately become hard.

Mix agar agar in 2 to 3 tbsp warm water and dissolve it.
Keep it aside.

Mix custard powder in 1/2 cup cold milk and heat the remaining milk.

When it starts boiling add the custard milk mixture slowly , constantly stirring to avoid lump formation.

Keep the gas flame low. If the lumps are formed use a blender to remove the lumps.

Add vanilla essence and agar agar mixture and mix well .

Pour into the individual moulds and keep to set in the fridge.

Serve chilled.
