Make on Fresco

I know this sounds a bit weird. But you really should try it before judging me! It is very easy to make, if you have an ice cream churner, get it out and go for it. This recipe compliments any spicy meal perfectly and I am pretty sure it will hit your regular rotation if you are an ice cream lover...and apparently warmer days are ahead! made it through the winter. Almost.

Happy Mixing.

Place lime leaves, cinnamon, vanilla, turmeric, cardamon, ginger and lemongrass into Thermomix bowl and chop 6 sec/speed 6.


Scrape down sides of bowl and add cream and milks. Cook 20 min/80ºC/speed 2.


Allow to steep in Thermomix bowl until cooled.


Strain through a fine mesh sieve and place into the fridge. Age this custard mix for about a day if you have time.


Pour cold custard into an ice cream churner and churn until the consistency of soft serve. Add the pistachios in the last 30 seconds of churning.


Pour into a tray or moulds as desired and place in the freezer. It should be ready to serve in under an hour.


Alternatively, freeze custard solid in an ice cube tray and then blend and churn in your Thermomix by placing half the mixture into the Thermomix bowl and blending 10 sec/speed 10. Continue to churn on speed 8 with the aid of the spatula.


Add pistachios at the very end of this process for just a few seconds.


Remove mixture from Thermomix bowl and repeat with remaining cubes. Return to the freezer as directed above.


To make the Mango Puree, place all ingredients into the Thermomix bowl and blend 20-20 sec/speed 10 until liquid. Serve drizzled over the kulfi or freeze in the bottom of moulds, pouring the ready to freeze kulfi mixture on top. Freeze until solid, then turn out to serve.
