More about it here.Though we do not get alphonso(hapus) in Houston what we get is the tinned mango pulp.Not that good as fresh mango but we still love it.
This week I invited few of my very dear friends for tea party. I kept the menu simple but flavourful - sweet and spicy dabeli, crispy-crunchy chivda,date cake for the ones with a sweet tooth and to wrap it up - mango ice-cream. The mango-icecream was oh-so-good. It replicated the Kawre magic quite easily.
So without further adieu here's the recipe.
Jugalbandi's Express Mango Ice-cream.
1 14oz can sweetened condensed
1 can kesar mango pulp (one avalaible in indian grocery store)
1 8oz container of cool-whip (fat-free ok)
1. Mix the pulp and the condensed milk to smooth.
2.Now add the cool-whip and blend with a hand blender till the mixture is smooth. To avoid spluttering blend first at low speed and be sure to use a tall container.Alternately you can also blend in a jar blender.
3. Freeze in a air-tight container until set. Makes about 2 quarts
This is so soft creamy thatI did not get much time to take the pics before it started melting.Also everytime one of us open the freezer we stop to have a spoonful of it ! This recipe is a keeper. Thank you Jai and Bee for this wonderful recipe.
