Fried Ice-Cream : A Valentine's Delight



Sometimes during your course of life you come across such type of food which stays in your memory forever. They are so unique in their looks and taste that you are surprised just by the look of it. Also, you think what an ingenious inventor could have thought about such a wonderful tasting and unique looking preparation which refuses to leave your memory. I know many of you must be thinking that I have lost my mind to come up with an weird ice-cream dish that too fried ! One such preparation is called as Fried Ice Cream which I had 15 years back at my Aunt's wedding in Delhi.  After 2 trials I could achieve the same result.






 The taste was so delicious and lingering that it seems that I still feel that I have tasted it only yesterday. The key point in this dessert is that it is fried from outside with the help of a special coating and must be consumed without any delay in order to enjoy the crispiness of the coating as well as the chill of the ice cream together.


These are crusty outside and inside chilled vanilla ice-cream is awating for you. The process is little time taking as it needs to coat well before dipping in hot oil. Trust me friends, you would love the taste of it. 


Ingredients:
5 Vanilla ice-cream scoops
1/2 cup All purpose flour
1/4 cup Desiccated coconut
1/4 cup Bread crumbs
2 tsp Vanilla essence
1 tsp Cinnamon powder
1 1/2 cups crushed Corn flakes
1 egg, beaten
Oil for deep frying


Method:
Take a baking tray, lined with waxed paper and put it in freezer section before you want to start the procedure. Since we are going to deal with ice-cream which melts very fast you have to be very quick. So with one swift lightning fast move, place 5 ice-cream scoops on the chilled baking tray and keep in freezer for minimum an hour. 


Left: Flour +cinnamon +vanilla essence=Batter, Right: Ice-cream scoops dipped in batter and ready to roll in breadcrumbs
Make a batter of all purpose flour, vanilla essence and cinnamon powder with little water. The consistency should be thick. Dip each ice-cream scoops in this batter and immediately roll in the breadcrumbs. Return to the freezer again for an hour. 
In a big bowl mix desiccated coconut and crushed cornflakes ready. Place the beaten egg next to this. Now take out the flour coated ice-cream scoops and dip in egg batter, then back into the cornflakes mixture. Press hard the corkflakes against the scoops, which eventually will provide thick crust. Try to shape into round balls. And repeat the process for firm outer coat. Return to the freezer for another hour. 
Fry for 30 seconds....
Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan, take out the ice-cream scoops from the freezer and dip one ball at a time. Fry for few seconds until the outer crust becomes light brown. 


Remove from oil and place on paper towel to remove excess oil. Serve immediately with chocolate sauce to surprise your loved ones.
Gone in seconds...:-)

  63. Many people argue that eating too many plants grown
    with commercial fertilizers or pesticides can cause health problems.
    They don't control every bad bug, but it will help you have better success gardening. Subtle gardening themes act upon the subconscious, and merely give the observer a pleasant feeling.
