How to make Filipino Leche Flan

  1. *In a Sauce pan add sugar ,melt on a slow flame.when the sugar becomes dark in colour .Spread it evenly over the invidual ramkins.Allow caramel to cool and harden.
  2. *In a medium bowl add egg yolks,whisk it very well.Then add condensed milk+milk.Gently stir in a circular motion .Finally add the vanilla essence.
  3. *In a cheesecloth or Metal strainer,strain the egg- milk mixture.Pour strained mixture into prepared ramkins.
  4. *Cover the Ramkins with aluminium foil and steam it(Here i used my Idli pot for steaming) for 40-45 mins.
  5. *After steaming, let the temperature cool down then refrigerate for at least 2 hrs.
  6. To Serve: Run a knife along the edges of the flan molds to loosen. For individual flans, turn the molds over onto a platter or individual plates.The flan should come out easily with the caramel on top.

My Tip:

*It is hard to find a Llanera(Traditional Flan Mould) depending on ur location.It more convenient to use individual round pan or ramkins. *In this recipe you need only Egg yolk & Condensed milk. *Never beat the egg-milk mixture but stir gently in circular motion to prevent bubbles. *The real secret to smooth and cremy leche flan is straining the egg - milk mixture before pouring into moulds.
