Cinnamon flavoured apple icecream

Recently something that I enjoyed making was icecream. I had been eyeing that recipe for some time and when a good friend was stopping over for dinner, I thought it was the best time to make it. I usually do not let go of such nice opportunities to try out something new on unassuming good citizens. :)

I made a cinnamon flavoured apple icecream. I used Tarla Dalal’s recipe, but tweaked it heartily to suit my taste. Cooking the apple first, then cooking the milk and cream, then letting it cool, freezing it, taking it out once in three hours to whip it – all this gave me a certain satisfaction that a store-bought icecream would never give. It is the same difference between buying a cake and baking one at home. The method looks a little long, but, fairly easy and incomparably delicious.

Milk: 2 cups
Sliced apples (peeled and cored): 1 cup
Sweetened condensed milk: ½ cup
Cream: ½ cup
Corn flour: 2 tsp
Sugar: ¼ cup (or more or less)
Cinnamon: ¼ tsp + ¼ tsp
Lemon juice: ½ tsp
A few apple slices: to garnish
Add a cup of water, ¼ tsp cinnamon and ¼ cup sugar to the apples and cook the apples till they are mushy. You could cover with a lid or leave it open. It took me about 15 – 20 minutes (covered).
Now cool this mixture. Once cool, grind to a fine paste.
Keep ½ a cup of milk aside. Add the cornflour to this and mix thoroughly so that no lumps are formed. Keep aside.
Take the remaining one and a half cups of milk and bring to a boil.
As it is boiling, stir in the cornflour mixture, condensed milk, ¼ tsp cinnamon and stir constantly.
Keep the flame on medium and keep stirring.
After 5 minutes or so, this mixture would attain a custardy consistency.
Remove from flame. Stir in the lemon juice, cream and the apple mixture.
Once cool, freeze it for 3 – 4 hours.
Take it out for about 3 – 4 times and whip it in the mixie for a couple of minutes to break the ice crystals.
Then freeze till serving time.
