1 cup of milk
2 tbsp sugar
5 drops of vanilla essence
One can prepare the pudding either in the oven or in the Cooker.
Take a baking pan which fits into the cooker and sprinkle 5-6 tsp of sugar in it.
Hold it over a small flame until the sugar starts to caramelise.
Then spread the caramel evenly over the dish so that it covers the entire base of the dish.
Remove it and keep aside to cool.
Boil the milk in a pan and set aside till it cools to room temp.
Take a wide mixing bowl and beat the egg using an electric hand mixer until it gets foamy.
Then blend in the sugar and beat it once more.
Now add the cooled milk slowly to the mixture and blend well.
Add a few drops of vanilla essence to the mixture and blend again.
Now pour this mixture into the baking dish on the cooled caramel layer.
Pour 2 inches of water into the cooker and place the dish into it.
Steam it for a good 15 minutes on low flame with the weight on.
Once it is done remove the dish and set aside for cooling.
Then place it in the refrigerator for 2 hrs.
Before serving cut the entire edge of the pudding along the sides using a knife in order to loosen it.
Then cover the dish with an upturned plate and overturn the dish so that the pudding slides on to the plate. Cut and serve.
