Hi I made this recently and it turned out good. Its yummy and easy to make and a good recipe which doesnt require an oven. It was mine and my mom's first venture in cooking pudding. We didnt have an oven so this was what we used to do. Use our pressure cooker for cooking pudding.
For the custard
3 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanila extract
For the caramel

4 tablespoons of sugar
  1. Prepare the caramel by heating the sugar in a vessel until it turns out to a golden brown liquid. Be careful not to turn it black as this makes the caramel very bitter. And be very careful while making caramel as it is very hot and it can splash on your face if it comes in contact with water.
  2. Pour this caramel into the very dry pudding vessel (which fits in a pressure cooker or steam cooker, it can be a stainless steel or any other vessel which you use for cooking on stove, but make sure it fits in the steam cooker or pressure cooker as shown above picture). Coat it uniformly on the sides
  3. Prepare custard my blending all the custard items well
  4. Add it to the pudding vessel
  5. Place this vessel in the steam cooker
  6. Fill water carefully from the sides of the cooker till the level of pudding in the pudding vessel
  7. Cover the cooker and steam it for 30 minutes.
  8. Take out the vessel and cool it in refrigerator for 2 hours
  9. Serve it with fresh fruit or ice cream.

Hope you enjoy it !


This is the name I gave to this crazy snack I made yesterday. I thought of this name as its made of chappati, and when made tastes like samosa. So the name Tortilla + Samosa = Torttosa. Its easy, just stuff some vegetable curry into a tortilla (or chappatthi), in that case the name becomes chapposa ;)) and deep fry it. I know you must be thinking I have completly lost my mind. Yes, after tries of making some corn potato kabab, became unsuccessful, I wanted to use up the remaining potato curry. So this is what I came up with. I am posting the pics above. You might also see the unsuccessful corn potato kababs. Just ignore them. Look at Tortosa :)

Cheesy Potato Bonda

Cheesy Potato Bonda ready!

Mixing cheese with the rest of the ingredients
Hi I prepared Potato Bonda (Batata Vada) with a very small twist. Added mozarella cheese (fat free brand) after mixing the remaining ingredients. Hope you too enjoy it. Add more cheese if you want a very cheesy taste. In konkani potato is called "kook", and so this dish is called "kookkache bonda". You may refer my snack section for the recipe for potato bonda which I had posted in my archives.
