Homemade Anjeer Badam Ice Cream | Fig almonds Ice Cream, a delicious treat

Who doesn’t love ice cream?Although we all have the convenience of buying our favourite readymade ice cream, making one at home is quite a different experience.

With this amazing ice cream recipe, you can make delicious, creamy, fresh ice cream at home.

In addition to that, this process to make ice cream is so easy and doesn’t require any special ingredients or ice cream machine.

Ice creams made with fruit are one of the best things to enjoy in this  summer heat. So use any fresh fruit of your choice and relish it in a different way.

Last time I tried Avocado, pineapple and coconut ice cream and my family was super happy to dig their spoons in it.

It instilled a lot of confidence to go ahead and try few more of my favourite ice creams.

Anjeer (fig) is one of them as from a certain brand I always prefer to have this particular fruit ice cream.

So I decided to pair dried figs with honey coated almonds for that extra flavor and crunch.

Serve this delicious ice cream to your family and friends or make this on special occasions, for dinner parties and get together.

How to use dried figs to make Anjeer Badam Ice Cream | Fig almonds Ice Cream

The dried figs i used were a bit hard, so I had to first soak them in warm water till they were soft.

Once soft I blended it and added to the ice cream base.

 

How to make Ice cream base

This recipe to make ice cream base is full proof, will remain the same for any of the ice cream you wish to try.

However, you can use any flavor like tutti frutti, butterscotch or fruit of your choice.

– To make base for ice cream always use full fat milk like buffalo milk. I would suggest not to use toned,  skimmed or cow milk.

– Next, always make a mixture of raw milk, powdered sugar, cornflour and milk powder. Whisk it well and cook on low flame by stirring constantly for 5 to 7 minutes.

Once it comes to rolling boil and turns thick remove it from the stove. Cool and sieve it. Keep it aside.

– Always use chilled whipping cream. Whip it to medium soft peaks. Add condensed milk and sieved milk-cornflour mixture we prepared earlier.

That’s it. So tell me, what is your favourite ice cream flavour and have you ever tried to make it at home?

    To make Honey coated almonds

    • 1/4 cup almonds
    • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1/2 teaspoons flavor less oil
    • 1 tablespoon water

    Instructions

    To make honey coated almonds

    • To begin with, combine sugar and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
    • Dry roast almonds in a pan on low flame stirring it continuously. Set aside.
    • In the same pan combine honey, oil and water. Bring it to boil on low flame. Stir roasted almonds into the honey mixture.
    • Cook for about 5 minutes till all the liquid is absorbed by the almonds and they are well coated.
    • Transfer these almonds into a tray with parchment paper.
    • Sprinkle the sugar-salt mixture over the almonds, stir to coat all almonds. Make sure every piece of almond is coated well.
    • Let them cool and dry completely.
    • Store in an airtight container for further use.

    To make ice cream base

    • In a thick bottom pan combine raw buffalo milk, cornflour, powdered sugar and milk powder. Whisk in well.
    • Switch on the stove and bring this milk mixture to a rolling boil on a slow flame stirring constantly so that it shouldn't stick to the bottom.
    • Cook this for about 5 to 7 minutes, once it turns thick remove from the stove and let it cool completely. Sieve it and set aside.
    • Make sure to cool it completely as skipping this step will form ice crystals in the ice cream.

    Make Figs/anjeer paste

    • Grind about 10 pieces of soaked and drained figs and make a paste. Make sure to grind it without using a drop of water.
    • Roughly chop the remaining 5 anjeer pieces for that bite in the ice cream.

    Whip the cream

    • Next, with the help of stand mixer, whip the chilled non dairy  whipping cream to medium soft peaks. Add Condensed milk and mix gently with spatula.
    • It's time to add cooled, sieved milk- cornflour mixture. Incorporate everything well. Next add anjeer/figs paste and honey.
    • At this stage you can add chopped nuts, I haven't. Again whip this whole mixture for 1 minute so that the anjeer gets well incorporated.
    • In the last add chopped figs pieces and give a gentle mix. Transfer this mixture to airtight container and seal it tightly.

    Set ice cream in the freezer

    • Wrap the container with cling film or aluminum foil and keep this in the freezer to set for atleast 12 hours or overnight.
    • Make sure the temperature of the freezer should be highest to set it well. I kept mine it at - 40 degrees.
    • Once chilled and set properly, it's ready to serve. Garnish with some honey coated almonds and dry rose petals.

    Notes

    1. I used dried figs for this recipe however, fresh one would taste good also. If you can get hold of fresh figs, please use 4 to 5 pieces.
    2. Make sure to cook fresh figs in 1/4 cup milk and then use to make ice cream
    3. Adjust sugar according to taste. Remember we have used honey coated almonds and figs are naturally sweet so do not go overboard with sugar.
