- Who doesn't like desserts! I think everyone, whether young or old.
After a lavish meal, a delicious dessert is a must in my home.
- In the Western countries the Dessert recipes have many varieties such as Cakes, Ice creams, Pies and Puddings, Chocolates and Cookies. Even fruit is considered as a Dessert.
- In India however Dessert recipes means Sweets such as Rosogullas, Gulabjamuns, Laddoos, Burfis, Kheers, Kulfi, Halwas,and many, many more mouth watering sweets.
- But now with globalization, even our food habits have been affected. While the Westerners may like to cook and relish our Indian recipes, we do also cook their recipes and enjoy them.
- So you can see exotic food served in Indian restaurants, which are special recipes of some other country. In Indian weddings too, you can see continental food, Thai food, Chinese food, Italian food --the list goes on.
- When it comes to Desserts, Caramel custard is one of my favorite and everyone in my family loves it.
- There is a reason for it. It is so light and refreshing and with no oil or fat!
- Preparing it is also very easy. Earlier I used to cook it by steaming it on double boiler but with microwave, it is much easier and quicker to make.

- 3-4 Eggs, 4 if the eggs are small, 3 if they are big
- 2 tablespoonful Sugar, For the mixture

- Add the egg mixture to the cooled milk.
- Add sugar and vanilla essence and mix thoroughly.
- Take a glass bowl, suitable for microwave cooking. Add two tablespoonful sugar and one tablespoonful water. Place in the microwave and caramalize the sugar for two minutes.
- Take out the bowl and let this cool. Pour the prepared milk and egg mixture into this bowl.
- Place in the microwave oven and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, depending upon your oven. Mine takes about 8 minutes. You can check by inserting a toothpick. If it comes clean, your recipe is ready.
- Take it out and put in the refrigerator to cool.

The Traditional 'Steaming Method' Of Making Caramel Custard!
- The conventional method of making caramel custard is the same with the difference that you steam the mixture on a double boiler.
- The sugar can be caramelized in a metal bowl over flame.
- We first place water in a big bowl and place the prepared mixture in it and cover it.
- We cook it on very low flame and it takes about thirty to forty minutes to be ready.
- Both the methods can be applied in making this delicious dessert.
- Some people make it in pressure cooker as well, the same way you make Idlis, without the weight above.
- You can also use brown sugar instead of white sugar.
Whichever method you adopt, the taste remains the same---Delicious!
Enjoy the Dessert!

I prefer to regard a dessert as I would imagine the perfect woman: subtle, a little bittersweet, not blowsy and extrovert. Delicately made up, not highly rouged. Holding back, not exposing everything and, of course, with a flavor that lasts.
