Mango Icecream-An Indian Scream!..


I am virtually screaming for icecreams,not that I am an ice-cream lover,but the Indian summer invariably makes me do so!.

The next thing I am screaming for, is Mango.The Royal, Successful and the Most expensive, Imampasanth or Himampasanth, as it is named, is a very much sought after variety developed recently in one of the farms of T.N!!.The season is almost getting over and I am grabbing them, meticulously transforming them into curries, pickles, shakes and salads...

Finally, I came across the great event of Monthly Mingle in What's for Lunch for Honey , thought of why not try whipping up these creamy and tasty mango pieces to ice cream and go for a combined Scream..?..and, Meeta, this is definitely an untried venture as no one might have tried making fresh ice creams with Imampasanth, yet.The recipe is totally self made with a touch of creativity and the result; a humble success!.

Here comes the results from my Kitchen Laboratory..:)..

To make 3 large scoops;

I needed:

A cup of Imam or Himam Pasanth mango pulp(whip up pieces of half a mango)
A cup of thick creamy millk
A tbsp of flour(maida) blended without lumps in 1/3rd cup of milk in room temperature
3/4 cup of sugar
A tbsp of fresh cream

How I made:

1.Boil milk in a large pan,simmer for a few minutes to get rid of the water content in it and turn thicker.

2.Dissolve sugar and simmer for a few more minutes in low flame.

3.Now, add the maida plus milk mixture slowly,stirring all the time avoiding lumps and facilitate blending in.

4.Simmer again till you reach a thicker consistancy milk in the pan.

5.Cool till it attains room temperature.Mix in the mango pulp and beat the combined mixture in a blender.

6.Transfer contents to an icecream tray and set to freeze.

7.When half frozen,take out and whip again in a blender adding the fresh cream.This will again smoothen the lumps if you have had while boiling with maida milk mixture.

8.Transfer contents,to the same tray again and return to the freezer.

9.Freeze till it hardens.

10.Scoop them into ice-cream cups and enjoy the product without counting the calories :).Unlike other ice cream flavours, this has more tendency to turn pulpy if melts, therefore it is important to be served soon after taking out of the freezer.

P.S-I have not yet tried the recipe with other Mango varieties, but you can try them as well, if you are a mango or an icecream lover.

  1. Yummy ice cream with one of my favourite variety of mangoes. This variety has been there forever because I have been having it since childhood. The taste of this mango it far ahead compared to others I think. Not many people are aware of this particular variety of mangoes but a lot of people from Andhra know about it. Thanks.
