Roasted almond ice cream is one of my all time favorite. I first had this ice cream at Natural’s. I have few other favorite flavors like tender coconut, Mango, chickoo, litchi, sitaphal and and I like to eat all of them in waffle cone.This was the first time we were preparing some ice cream from scratch and I am happy to report that it was amazing in both taste and texture.
Step 1 Boil milkTake a bottomed pan and add milk to it. Then baked it on low flame and let the milk boil. Keep stirring once in a while or the milk will start sticking to the bottom of the pan and will eventually begin check while baking , the taste of the milk.
Step 2 Dry roast the almonds Once the milk is reduced to half its original quantity and acquires layer, pinkish texture, switch off the then allow it to cool. Meanwhile, dry roast the almonds till they acquire a nutty aroma. Now powder the almonds and keep some to be used as garnish later.
Step 3 Add cardamom powderNow switch on then again and add the condensed milk, almonds and cream. Once it comes to a boil, add cardamom powder(powder it with a rolling pin at that very moment as freshly powdered cardamom has a superior aroma), saffron dissolved in a spoon of milk and cornflour dissolved in half a cup cold milk. Allow the milk to simmer for 2-5 minutes.
Step 4 Refrigerator the ice creamNow let it cool by placing the vessel in a bowl of ice. This will make it more creamy. As soon as the milk cools down, refrigerate it for two to three hours. Once the ice-cream is set, remove it from the refrigerator and mix it well with a hand blender. This step is important to ensure that your ice-cream turns out to be creamy.
Step 5 Garnish and relishPour it in the mold of your choice and freeze. The ice-cream will be ready in two to three hours. Add almonds on top. You can also decorate the ice-cream with pistachios, raisins and wafers or mint and sprinklers. Serve it as a post dinner dessert.
