Who does not like ice creams?...there will be hardly very few in that list. But i just love ice creams. Though they are high in calories, once in a while they are ok to have:-))
I had never tried making ice cream right from scratch, i had always used it making some ready made packets or relied over baskins or gelato. As home made ice creams were not as soft as those ready made ones,they always had ice crystals. But i found this simple recipe and i got very eagar to try it. I tried it with my changes and it came out very well. It was very soft and tasty,no ice cystals at all, you can make it out by seing its pic.Though it tuk lot of effort and patience,but at the end those efforts were worth:-))
500 ml whole milk
200 ml canned mango pulp
200 ml condensed milk
11/2 cup dryfruits(cashew nuts ,pistachio)
1/4 cup raisins
3-4 tea spoon sugar
Boil milk and let it get cooled.When its cooled perfectly then only proceed with the next steps.
Mix condensed milk,cooled milk, sugar and mango pulp and blend it for 1 min. Now add 1/2 cup chopped dryfruits ans blend again for 2 mins.
Now put it in setting bowl and place in a freezer. Let it get set for 2-3 hours. After 2-3 hours remove it and again blend the mixture for 1-2 mins till it becomes very smooth and again freeze it for 4-5 hours.
Remove it again and blend it again and freeze for more 3-4 hours. Again remove it and blend it well for 2 mins. Now mix the chopped remaining dryfruits and freeze the mixture for 7-8 hours or till it sets fully.
Remove Scoops and garnish with your favourite toppings and serve.
NOTE: You can even remove pulp of fresh mangoes and use. I have used less sugar as the canned pulp already contains it. Adjust sugar according to your taste.
Blending half set ice cream again and again helps to break the ice crystals formed in it, thus giving it a smooth and soft texture. If you want you can blend it once more for more good results, but you need to have patience:-))
