Eggless Caramel Custard

After having the divine experience of  a blissfull caramel custard in a pure veg.reataurant, (which was quiet surprising) , I was determined , to make an equally delicious , firm and creamy custard at home ,and yes without eggs...
Somehow, I cannot come to accept eggs in my custard or icecreams....
So decided to give it a shot.
The recipe needed agar agar....which I didnt have at home..You see I just decide to make desserts in an instinct ...so have to make it with whatever I have.
So a gelatine  was the other option , and decided to try it.
Results ....amazing , firm Caramel Custard ,that you can cut through with your spoon!


1 Cup Milk
1 1/2 tbsp Vanilla Custard Powder
4 tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
2 tbsp Gelatine , dissolved in 1/4 cup water and left for 1/2 hour
2-4 tsp Sugar
Water as required.

Mix the custard powder with milk ,along with sugar and place it on gas stove ,on low flame ,stirring occassionally.
Let the custard boil , then cook on low flame for 1 min.

Now add the gelatine mixture and cook for 3-4 mins , stirring continuously.

Cool a bit and add vanilla exttract.

Mix 4 tsp sugar in 2 tsp water and let it caramelise on low flame ,in a pan.

Once the sugar turns caramel ,pour it in 4 moulds and spread them across the moulds.

Pour the hot custard mixture in each mould and cool for atleast 2-3 hours.

To unmould, loosen the edges using a knife and invert over serving plate.
