  • With in few minutes it will change into liquid then it will begin to change colour,when the colour becomes dark brown pour 1/4 cup of hot water. Stir it well and cook until the sugar crystals dissolves completely. Transfer it into a bowl and allow to cool.When the caramel cools down it will harden which is common
