One of my Iftar delicacies. Today I made this butterscotch pudding and thought its worth to share it here with you all. Butterscotch is one of my favorite flavors esp. when it comes to dessert n puddings. It tastes like a milk toffee cos of the caramelized sugar. Here is my homemade recipe of butterscotch pudding. Bit tricky you may feel, but it is indeed simple and tasty.
100 g butter
1 cup sugar
2 ½ cup boiling milk
4 eggs, yolk n white separated
4 tsp gelatin dissolved in ¼ cup warm water
1 tsp vanilla
Heat the butter in a saucepan, add ¾ cup sugar and cook till the sugar caramelizes or turns into golden brown color. Be careful not to let it burnt. Quickly pour in the boiling milk and stir well. Cook till caramel is completely dissolved. Remove from fire and add the dissolved gelatin. Beat the yolks separately and pour in it. Also add the remaining ¼ cup sugar and the vanilla and stir into the milk.
Bring it to boil stirring well and then remove from fire. Cool the mixture by keeping the saucepan in a bowl of cold water and stir well.
Now beat the egg whites separately till soft peaks form and fold it in the cooled mixture.
Slightly grease the pudding mould or cups with butter. Now pour mixture in cups and keep in freezer for about 15 minutes and then remove and put it in the refrigerator.
After it is set, loosen the edge with the help of a knife and turn it upside down.. Voila.. Ready to serve.
