Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Summer is here.............. I am waiting for the exams to get over. The first thing I will do is I will sleep for two days. Then I will clean the messed up house. April month has lot of sweet, bitter, tangy.... experiences. During child hood, till April 10, we used to be like "bheegi billi;" Once we get our result on April 10, and the marks card in our hand with 75%, 60%, 50%(those days, 50% was also a great achievement), our vacation for 2 months was started. We were free birds.. No fixed time for any thing.. Many eatables like fresh home made pickle, paapad, tamarind lolly pop, and then Ice cream.. The man used to come with a pushing box which had wheels. We used to wait for his voice "Femmilaaaaaaaaaaicccccccccccccecream...." We used to search for some elder person to buy those ice cream for us.. :-))))
Why am I telling all these to you???? Because, April is only few days away.. and I want my kids to enjoy the vacation. What else will be greater than Ice cream to start this vacation.
Here is the simple home made ice cream, it takes time but kids enjoy each bite.
Milk : - 1 liter (Thick)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp
Corn flakes - 1/4 cup
Fresh cream - 1/4 cup(optional)
Boil the milk in a big vessel. Take 1/4 cup of milk from it. Cool it and add the cocoa powder. Mix well. Keep it aside.
Keep the milk to boil again. Add sugar and boil till the sugar melts fully. Add the cocoa powder mix. Mix well and boil till the milk thickens and reduces to 3/4th. Add cornflakes, mix well.
Remove from heat and keep it to cool. Once its cold, keep in the refrigerator for an hour.
Add the fresh cream.
Remove it, put it in a grinder or use blender to mix it properly.
Refrigerate again for an hour.
Remove and blend it well with blender or grinder.
Mix well, Refrigerate again till it sets.
Serve it cool in a serving bowl.
My kids stand with the spoon in their hands... They can't wait till I serve it in the bowls.
