ELBA .. Kuwaiti flan or custard pudding

      Elba  is a traditional dessert from Kuwait .. they used to make  with Colostrums  (also known as first milk ) of cows or goats  because of  its benefits and the amount of protein it has ( poor baby ) but nowadays we’re using regular milk to make it , I prefer the dried kind  and it should be full fat milk otherwise  creme fresh or thick cream ” gaimer ” should be added to the recipe
This is my mom recipe and it so easy ,so affordable and so tasty
    ” some recipe called for caramelized sugar in the bottom of  the pot  ” as Crème caramel ” other called for nigella seed or ” ḥabbat al-barakah”
You can substitute the condensed milk with the same amount of sugar or  stevia

All you need:
6 large eggs
1 cup condensed milk
2 cups of powdered ( dried ) milk
5 cups of water
Ground cardamom & saffron to taste
How to make it
So easy .. preheat the oven to 200-210 c
mix all ingredient
Pour it in ramekin or pyrex or any container  with a lid   then place it in water  bath  ” bain marie” in the oven for hour and half

Let it cool completely in the fridge before serving ( preferably overnight)   :)
