Additional information

Reference is made to roasted milk with Chile; however, it is not indicated that this country is the original country since it is Europe the cradle of this type of desserts , as well as flan among others.

Probably at the time of the conquest these recipes spread in South America, reaching various countries such as Chile, Mexico, Ecuador and here to Peru among others, since we can find the name of roasted milk in each of those countries, but with variations in the recipes.

This dessert is actually quite simple. We don’t need much to make it, the ingredients are convenient and accessible. It has as main protagonists milk and egg . The result of this is delicious.

I invite you to try it if you haven’t done so yet and to prepare it if you have already tried it but have never tried it at home.
