Yummy quick Caramel Pudding

Ingredients :
1 egg
2 slices of bread
2 and a half glasses of milk
3 tbsps of sugar
Vanilla essence for taste

What next :
Blend them all in a mixer. Caramelise a container, add the blended mixture in and steam it in a pressure cooker for half an hour without a whistle

For "caramelising" - First take a container (steel or aluminium), add sugar (eg : if you use a container which is about 6-7 inches in diameter and about 4 inches high, then use ~3-4 tbsps sugar. Keep the container on the flame and when the sugar starts browning, turn the container around so that the brown liquid sugar spreads and covers the entire inner base of the container.Allow it to dry a little before adding the blend.

To serve :
Chill (NOT IN THE FREEZER) and serve after inverting into plate.
