Softest Grape Ice Cream

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
How are you?
Summer is here and cold things are in.. The refrigerator is full of juices, ice creams, squash, Tang, Rasna..
Hey wait, I think  last year also, I started with the same sentences :-)
That doesn't matter anyways, we have to concentrate on today's recipe.
Its Grape Ice cream. It was my elder daughter's wish. And how could I say NO to her..
Before also I have prepared Ice creams many times but this time it was something special, it was the softest Ice cream I ever had at home..
I don't know the reason, but I am giving you the step by step procedure, try and let me know whether you too got the same taste and texture.

Milk - 1/2 liter (I used thick milk Kolhapur brand)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Grapes - 1 cup
Corn Flour - 2 tbsp
Vanilla Custard Powder - 3 tbsp(CHIEF INGREDIENT :-) )
Fresh cream - 3 tbsp(I have saved it from 2 days milk and stored in the fridge.

Method :
  • Boil the milk in a thick bottomed pan and wait until cold.
  • Till its cold,
  • Prepare the grapes puree by putting in the mixi. 
  • Transfer it into glass bowl or Plastic bowl. Cover it and keep in the freezer.
  • Take out the half cup of milk.
  • Add the Corn flour and Vanilla Custard powder. Mix well till no lumps.
  •  Keep the milk to boil with sugar added. Once the sugar is dissolved and milk starts boiling,
  • Add the cornflour and custard powder mix. Be careful, keep on stirring, otherwise the milk will burn at the bottom. Boil for few minutes(5 to 7 minutes is fine). Remove from the fire. Allow it to cool.
  • Refrigerate for few hours(depends on the capacity of your fridge) Mine is old one and takes long time to freeze. I kept it for 4 hours. 
  • Remove it out, add the fresh cream and grapes puree. Churn it in the mixi. 
  • Transfer it in the box storage box(if you have any ice cream box, its good).
  •  Keep in the freezer again for few more hours. I kept the whole night.
  • Next morning, again I removed it and allowed it to thaw.
  • Again I put it in the mixi and churned it well till soft.
  • Transfer it again into the box. Keep it in the fridge till its set :-)

Enjoyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy each bite of this softest grapes ice cream.

Keep Smiling,
