Strawberry Ice Cream :)



Icecream6


I am still a kid by heart. I crave for ice-creams and would not mind living on it. :) (My dentist hates this wish of mine :( )

I am sure lot of you would say "Same pinch". I guess Ice cream is one of the dish that is available in every country and is liked by all ages.

When it is so much interesting, would it not be all the more interesting to make it at home by yourself?!!!!!

Here you go for the easiest method of making a lovely delight. :)


Icecream5


Ingredients:

Milk - 1/2 liter
Strawberry flavored custard powder - 1 pack(20 gms)
Sugar - 3/4 cup


Icecream1


Method:

Take the custard powder in a small cup and add 2 tsp of milk to it and mix it into a smooth paste. Keep this aside.

Now boil the remaining milk in a heavy bottomed vessel till it thickens to half its quantity. simmer the stove and add the sugar as well as the custard paste to the milk and mix well. Keep stirring for just two mins and switch off the stove. Transfer it to a bowl and let it cool for a while. Now leave it in the freezer for an hour or so. By this time the custard would have set and come to the right consistency.

Now take out the custard and blend it in mixie to a smooth paste again. Now transfer it back to a bowl and place it in the freezer for two hours. Once again take it out and blend it in the mixie and freeze it again. Repeat this process three time minimum. This would make the ice cream really creamy and smooth. :) Finally transfer it to the serving bowls and freeze it.

Decorate it with some strawberries and serve. :) Enjoy eating the chill delight. :)

Note: You can make loads of flavors in ice creams. Custard powder is available in store in more than ten flavors. So just make your choice and enjoy.

If you don't find your flavor ready at store, just use the plain custard powder along with food color and the respective essence to custom make it.

There is one more healthier choice. Just use plain custard powder along with a cup of the natural fruit pulp and make the ice cream. I am sure it would taste much more yummy this way. :)
