Minoo asked me to demonstrate the Japanese Purin, a kind of custard for dessert along Lez Mexican dishes. I thought Mexican dishes and Japanese dessert does not jive. So, I looked up from the internet a Mexican Flan recipe instead.
The Mexican Flan is more dense than the Japanese Purin. Nevertheless, it’s a great dessert to go along the Mexican theme.
