Full-fat Milk - 500ml
Granulated sugar - 3/4 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Cornflour - 1 tbsp
Gelatin/agar agar/china grass - 1 tsp
Dairy cream - 1 cup

  • Keep the freezer setting to the maximum.
  • Mix cornflour in 2tbsp of cold milk and keep aside.
  • Soak gelatin in 2tbsp lukewarm water for 5 minutes. Then stir it over a bowl of warm water until it dissolves.
  • Boil the milk until it reduces a little. This helps to prevent ice crystal formation.
  • Add sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves completely.
  • Reduce the flame and mix corn flour, stirring continuously. When the milk thickens, switch off the flame.
  • When the milk is lukewarm, add the gelatin and mix well. Chill in the freezer for 2 hours.
  • Then add the cream and vanilla essence and beat with an electric beater at low speed for a few minutes, keeping the vessel over a bowl of ice cubes. (Never use mixie)
  • Pour it in an aluminum tray or in a box with lid and keep it in the freezer. Once half set, take it from the freezer and beat it for a few minutes and pour it back into the box and freeze again.
  • Beat like this for 2-3 times to get a creamier ice cream.
  • The ice cream is ready once it sets. Allow it to thaw for 5 minutes before serving.
