Saffron and Almond Ice cream
Saffron and Almond goes very well with each other and it's also one of my favourite flavours.This is my first ice cream trial,after some drama it came out really well. It almost tasted like kesar kulfi.Since this is my first experience in ice cream making i din't want to take a chance,so i used cornflour,but if your are areal expert in making custard,you can avoid cornflour. Cornflour will avoid the mixture curdling so it's a bit easy if you are using this.
The Mother's Day Event' by Panch Pakwan. I dedicate this recipe to my mom ,she likes sweet,almond and ice cream,i'm sure she'll like this recipe.Although she is far away from me she can't taste the
ice cream atleast she can look the pictures and feel happy about it .Offcourse who doesn't remember or love their mother no matter how far away you live.
Islam says once a man went to Prophet(saw) and asked who should we give our respect and love after God,He(saw) said: your mother,the man asked who's next He(saw) said : your mother, the man asked again who's next, He(saw) said : your mother again,three times He(saw) said your mother and the forth time father.So every mother gives birth to a child pain after pain,not only during birth after that taking care of the child in every moment.
Anyway Jyothi thankyou for organising such a wonderful event.
Here is the recipe.
Whole milk-300 ml
Light cream-300 ml
Cardamom powder-1/2 tsp
Ground Almonds with skin-3 tbsp
Saffron-3/4 tsp soaked in warm milk
Chopped Almonds and saffron to decorate.
Beat the egg yolks,sugar and cornflour until it looks white and creamy.Heat the milk,cream,saffron and ground almonds in a pan just under boiling point. Pour the hot milk slowly into the egg mixture beating continuosly.Return the mixture to the pan again and heat it under low flame stirring continuosly. Keep stirring until the mixture coats the back of the spoon and slightly thicken.Leave the mixture to cool down completely.
Churn it in the ice cream machine as per the instructions in your ice cream machine.
Normally you have to churn it in the ice cream machine for 30 to 40 minutes. Return the mixture to a freezer proof bowl and put it in the freezer.15 minutes before serving put the ice cream in the fridge to soften.
