For making toffee / dulce de leche / cooked condensed milk:

  1. Remove the label from the can of condensed milk. Put the can in pressure cooker ( do not open the can ) with enough water to cover the can ( the can should be under water) and cook it for one whistle, then reduce the flame and cook for about 25-30 minutes.
  2. Let the pressure cooker cool down completely and then open the cooker and remove the can carefully from hot water. Cool the can completely at room temperature before opening.
