3 cups milk
1 tbsp vanilla custard powder
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp (5 grams) chopped agar-agar
1/4 cup finely chopped almonds (badam)

For The Caramel
sugar for caramelising

  1. Soak the agar-agar in ¾ cup of cold water for 5 minutes. Cook on a slow flame until it dissolves.
  2. Keep aside ½ cup of milk. Mix the custard in this cold milk.
  3. Boil the remaining milk with the sugar. When the milk starts boiling, add the custard and continue cooking until you get a smooth sauce.
  4. Add the cooked agar-agar to the custard. Boil again for 2 minutes. Strain the mixture and cool it slightly.
  5. Add half the almonds and mix well. Pour this mixture into 4 serving cups and refrigerate till firm.
  6. Heat the sugar in a pan with a teaspoon of water over a medium flame till it is light brown in colour and is caramelized.
  7. Pour the caramel over the set custard and sprinkle some almonds on top.
  8. Serve immediately.

  1. Do not refrigerate after pouring the caramelised sugar on top as the sugar will sweat and spoil the appearance of the dessert.
