INGREDIENTSMETHOD
Ingredients:
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp cornflour or cornstarch
  • 200ml evaporated milk
  • 200ml condensed milk
  • 200g double cream
  • 150g ground almonds
  • 6 drops Saffron and Spices Spice Drops®
  • 4 drops Cardamom Spice Drops®
  • 8-10 almonds, blanched and cut into thin slices

TIPS:
Use other Spice Drops® from the range like Rose or Saffron. Add pistachios, some green food colouring and cashews to give texture, colour and crunch to this fantastic ice cream.

  1. In a bowl, mix the 2 tbsp milk and the cornflour.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the evaporated milk and bring to a boil.
  3. Add in the condensed milk, double cream, ground almonds and the cornflour and milk mixture and stir well for one minute, on a low heat.
  4. Remove from heat and let it cool. Once the mixture has cooled down, add the Spice Drops®.
  5. Place the mixture in a food processor or use a hand blender and blend for a couple of minutes to smooth out any lumps. Grease 4 ramekins or kulfi moulds, if you have them, and divide the blanched almonds into each mould. Put the mixture on top and freeze for at least 6 hours. Take out of the freezer for about 5 minutes before serving and dip the moulds briefly in hot water to easily remove the ice cream.
