Caramel Pudding

Not a very favourite dessert of mine but the kids and Hubby love it.
Here's how I make it
The recipe is largely borrowed from Sanjeev Kapoor but I keep modifying as I go

Eggs- 4 large
Milk- 2.5 cups (500ml roughly)
Sugar - 100 g (1/2 a cup)
few drops vanilla essence

1/4th cup sugar and 1 tsp water

step1- making the milk ready as recommended by Sanjeev Kapoor
pour milk in a microwave bowl. MW high for 5 minutes. Set aside to come to normal temperature. I normally set aside boiled milk and let it cool (else the egg will coagulate)- I do not microwave it as suggested.

Step 2- making the caramel
Mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1 table spoon water in a glass bowl and Microwave high for 2 minutes or until the sugar bubbles, and caramlises
Pour in the pudding mould (dish) and set aside.

Step 3 - In a separate bowl mix eggs, vanilla essense and whisk.
Add sugar and whisk again.
Add the milk that has come to normal temperature and mix well.
Pour into the caramel mould and microwave high for 7-8 minutes. dip a skewer and check whether it comes out clean
Place a plate to cover the dish and upturn the pudding onto the plate.

Cool and refrigerate before serving

The pic is really yummy. So, you mean to say that you don't use a conventional oven to make it, right? You use the microwave oven to set it. Isn't it?
