How to make the Homemade Dulce De Leche
To my knowledge, we get two brands of sweetened condensed milk in India. One is Milkmaid and the other Mithai Mate. Ever since I have seen Mithai Mate, I have only used it as it comes with a handy lid. Of course I have not seen any taste difference too.
Anyway if you are using Mithai Mate, remove the plastic cap. If using Milkmaid, remove the label cover.
Fill a 1 liter pressure cooker with water half way through.
Immerse the can into the pressure cooker and close the lid without the whistle. The can should be made to lay horizontal.
Switch on the gas on high flame. Wait for steam to come and then put on the weight. When the first whistle goes, simmer the flame and let it cook for 30. During this process the whistle goes for about 4 -5 times. Its normal and you need not panic.
After 30 mins, switch off the gas and let the pressure fall down.
Allow the jar to cool down completely before opening the can.
You can refrigerate this can unless further usage.
30 mins of cooking will give your soft sauce. More than 45 mins, you will end up with thick sauce.
Since this is my first attempt, I can't say about other options. Will surely be trying some more time to record the rest.
