First it was Purple Foodies post,which tempted me to make some of the sweet nectar on my own.But all those horror stories of can burst and all scared me to the boot.Then I got my Vanni to get me a jar.I saved the jar in want of a great recipe to use it.Remember Dulce de Leche Bundt cake?
Then came Anushruti with her gorgeous post[as always] and in it I found a very simple method of making this wonder.Using pressure cooker in my kitchen is something which I do on a daily basis,so I decided I should venture into making DdL sooner.I would be lying if I said I wasn't scared of can burst,I even kept away from the kitchen,lol.But let me assure,nothing of that sort happened.It was as simple as making dal,or should I say even simpler than that!!
Step 1 - Remove the plastic lid from the jar[If you are using Amul Mithai Mate,or else skip this step].
Step 2 - Fill a pressure cooker with water half way through.
Step 3 - Immerse the can into the pressure cooker and close the lid.Switch on the gas on high.Wait for steam to come and then put on the weight.When you hear the first whistle,simmer the flame and let it cook for 30-45 minutes[depending on how thick you want your dulce de leche to be].I cooked for 30 minutes and I got a thick textured DdL.
Step 4-Switch off the gas and let it cool down to room temperature.
Step 5-The hardest part-wait for the jar to cool down.Let it cool completely and refrigerate if not using immediately.
Once it is cool to the touch,open the can,
My picks would be
Dulce de Leche Bundt Cake
Dulce de Leche Coffee
Dulce de Leche Brownies -- Done!
Dulce de Leche Creme Caramel
Watch out for what I am going to make..very soon!!
Hope you try it!!
