Vanilla Ice-Cream.... my younger ones favourite

Its so hot these days here. Feels like living inside an oven :( None can escape it I know.Kids are also finding it difficult to manage. They want to enjoy something cold all the time to cope up with the scorching sun's heat

Every year we spend our summer vacation in Mangalore... the weather is way better than here. This year my parents shifted to Chennai so no long-vacation for me and my kids :( We miss those days when every day during our vacation we used to go to Pabba's - a famous Ice-cream parlour in Mangalore. Every day was fun day. Kids and me too used to enjoy ice-creams to our hearts content. Kids too started missing it over this vacation. So we decided we will stock up our freezer with homemade ice-cream and enjoy to the fullest and yes we did. All the time we have different flavours stocked up in various boxes. The basics of ice-cream making is pretty simple. Once we get that, making all our favourite flavours is just a few stirs away

I buy cows milk so everyday we have fresh cream available. Using fresh makes the end-result more tastier and creamier. Usually I collect it to make butter and ghee but this season it has been mostly used for ice-cream making. We make in small batches as each one of us likes a different flavour. This plain vanilla ice-cream recipe is my younger one's favourite. He loves it any time. 

Serves... 4 ppl
Serve option... Frozen

This is what u'll need....

Fresh Cream / Malai - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Condensed milk - 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 tspn
Ice-cubes - to keep the cream cold

Here is the stir....

  • Chill your beater blades and working bowl before you start working. Place in ice-cubes in a wide bowl. Place your working  bowl on top the ice-cubes. This will ensure that the cream is cold all the whie when you are working with it
  • Spoon in fresh cream into the chilled bowl
  • Pour milk into the bowl
  • Beat it using a hand blender till you reach soft peaks or very fluffy. It takes me around 5-6 minutes. Dont overdo it as it turns to butter if you beat it too heavy
  • Add condensed milk in 2 or 3 batches and give it a good stir
  • Add vanilla essence
  •  Give it a good mix
  • Pour it into an airtight container and let it chill for about 2 hrs
  • Take it out of the freezer and mix it again for a few seconds
  • Let it freeze again for another 4-6 hours
  • Scoop into bowls and top it with kids favourite toppings. My kid loves choco chips, tutti-frutti, sugar pearls and many more. He picks different ones as per his mood :)

  • Keep the blades and bowl chilled to beat up the cream perfect
  • Adjust condensed milk quantity as per the sweetness you like
  • Dont overbeat the cream else is will turn to butter
