Chocolate Chip and More Chocolate Ice cream with edible oil

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
One more Ice cream item in my Menu.. This time it is Chocolate Ice Cream.. More Chocolate and more Choco chips. My kids love Chocolate. Any thing with chocolate is fine for them. The other day my husband brought a box of ice cream. As usual I checked the ingredients and was surprised to see "Edible oil" in the list.
I thought of using oil while making ice cream next time.
But I was not sure where and when and how much oil is used :-(  Then I thought of giving it a trial.

Thick Milk - 1/2 litre + 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Corn Flour - 3 tbsp
Cocoa Powder - 1/4 cup
Oil - 2 tbsp
Choco Chips - 1/4 cup
Any Chocolate - small pieces (1 small bar)
Nescafe powder - 1 tsp

Boil 1/2 litre milk.
Add sugar and boil till sugar is dissolved.
Take 1/2 cup milk and add corn flour and cocoa powder. 
Mix well till no lumps.
Add it to the milk and keep on stirring so that it won't get burnt.
Add oil.
Boil for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow it to cool.
Refrigerate it till its set.
Remove and churn in the mixi.
Transfer it into a box and add the choco chips(keep few for decorating), chocolate pieces.
Mix well. 
Keep in the refrigerator and allow it to set. After few hours when the ice cream is almost set, sprinkle choco chips, chocolate pieces and coffee powder. 
Serve it when its fully set..

Adding oil definitely  made some difference as the texture was soft and even the taste was different.

Sending this yummy choco chips chocolate ice cream to Jagruti's

Keep Chocolating :-)

Halwa layered Ice Cream :-)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I Scream when I see ICE CREAM....and now that ice cream with halwa :-)))))))))))) If you are a regular visitor here, you know I have a sweet tooth(Actually full set of teeth :-)))) ) and will be thinking always about the sweets after my food. And these events in the blogging world always puts my brain to work :-)
I wanted to try something using ice cream.... So this came the idea...
But please bear with the photo, I will tell the reason at the end.
Coming to the recipe: Very easy one, tasty, yummy, healthy(???) and just perfect dessert after wonderful lunch or dinner.
Vanilla or Butterscotch or Pista or Mango Ice cream - 1 big bowl or 200 litre(your favorite flavor)
but I  felt Vanilla will taste good with these halwa
Gajjar ka halwa (Carrot Halwa) - 1/2 cup(made with 1 big carrot)(Recipe Below)
Beet root halwa - 1/2 cup (Made with 1 big beet) (Recipe here or the simple version below)
Carrot - 2 big, cleaned and grated
Sugar - 1/4 cup or as per the taste
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Cardamom powder - pinch
Milk - 2 tbsp
Mix all in a MICROWAVE SAFE BOWL. Cook it on HIGH for 6 to 8 minutes, this halwa should be hard. Cook it more to make it little chewy. 

Beet - 1 big, cleaned, peeled and grated
Sweetened condensed milk - 1/4 tsp
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Cardamom powder
Heat the ghee in  a thick bottomed kadai. (Its good to make this on fire as we need to fry the beet to remove the raw smell) Add the grated beet and fry for few minutes till you feel the raw smell is almost gone, I fried for 5 minutes. Add the condensed milk and cook for few more minutes till the beetroot and the milk gets well mixed. Add the cardamom and cook for a minute.
Remove from the fire. Again the MUST step, allow it to COOL.

making layers:

Take a glass bowl.(Today I felt the necessary of few utensils with which I could have done better presentation. It ok for now, I will try to buy it the next time I go for shopping ) Spread 1" thick of (according to the size of the glass or bowl) beetroot halwa. Spread the ice cream again of 1" thick. Now spread the carrot halwa. Repeat with the ice cream layer. You can choose different flavors also for each layer. 
Allow it to set for some time and serve chilled..
You can give any shape, If you have a cylindrical vessel with both the side open like the tube ones, this ice cream looks beautiful.
Now coming to the pictures, 
First thing is the camera, Its an old one and have some problem. I am not able to take the photos properly.
Second thing is I could not keep the layers intact as the power went off when I Kept it to set and all the three layers got mixed. So I got an idea to mix the three things and give a new shape to it: and here it is down how it looked,

Home made Chocolate Ice Cream

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
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.

Fruit and cream, makes you scream!!!

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I know, being on my raw food diet, it is not the time to have this on my diet plan!
But I got the reason! My kids! They both love it. But, after some time,my younger daughter will start eating only ice cream and transferring all the fruits to her sister!!!(She loves to eat fruits, but, she will not touch when there is ice cream!!! )
Do this need any recipe to write down??
Apple - 1, washed, peeled and cubed
Orange - 1, washed, peeled and cubed
Banana - 2 small, peeled and cubed
Grapes - 1 small bunch, washed
And any other fruit of your choice
Chocolate - 1 bar, grated
Ready Ice cream - butter scotch is best for this, but you can choose any flavor you like.
(I will not suggest the ice cream to make at home, as t I am sending this for no cook event)
Salt - 1/4 pinch
Mix all the fruits and salt. Keep it on one side of a bowl. Take a scoop of ice cream and place it on the other side. Sprinkle the grated chocolate on the ice cream.
Serve chilled, without mixing. 
Enjoy the fruit and cream!
I am sending this to PJ's The 'no cook' event!

Keep Smiling,
