Simply excellent.But in step 2 how much sugar needs to be caramelized is not written,so I took 2 tsp of sugar and caramelized it.While caramelizing the caramel turned little darker,I was afraid that I may find it difficult to unmould, but thanks to Mrs Dalal that without hazzle the custard unmoulded properly and I was happy and all the members in the family also enjoyed The taste of caramel which had darkened also did not matter and the taste was balanced completely.
