Figs & Cashew Ice Cream | Kaju Anjeer Ice Cream

Ingredients
Milk - 1/2 cup,
Cashew - 1/4 cup,
Anjeer (figs) - 1/2 cup,
Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp,
Condensed milk - 1/4 cup,
Whipping cream - 1 cup.




Preparation
Chop anjeer with the help of scissor and measure 1/2 cup.


 Chop cashew in fine pieces and keep it aside.


Method
Heat milk in a pan and give it a boil.


Now add chopped anjeer pieces along with cashew pieces.


Stir and cook over medium to low flame till milk evaporates completely as per given below image.


Switch off the flame and let it come to room temperature. Roughly crush it using blender. Transfer in a plate and let it cool down completely.


Meanwhile, whip heavy whipping cream till it gets soft pick.


Now fold in prepared anjeer & cashew mixture followed by condensed milk and vanilla essence.


Transfer the mixture into a freezer safe container. Level it using spatula. Cover with clean plastic wrap followed by lid. Plastic wrap  should touch the mixture, so that ice crystal won't be formed.


Place container in freezer for 10 - 12 hours or till it gets well set. To get good result, after 5 - 6 hours, take out container and mix semi set ice cream using fork. Place back the container in freezer. This process makes ice cream smooth and creamy. Serve once it gets well set.



Notes
Adjust amount of condensed milk as per taste.
Vanilla essence can be skipped.
