JACKFRUIT ICE CREAM

I never had an idea of making Jack fruit ice cream, because I could not imagine the jack fruit flavor in ice cream. A friend of my husband gave 2 big jack fruits which were grown in his backyard. Husband told me to try ice cream with it... initially i was hesitant to make this new flavor. But, with his request I tried this ice cream, it came out so soft with an awesome taste.  Here is the recipe which my husband got from his friend.
JACK FRUIT ICR CREAM

WHAT YOU NEED :

Milk - 2 1/2 cups

Ripe Jack fruit, deseeded and chopped - 1 cup

Fresh Cream - 1/2 cup, I used to Amul fresh cream

Corn flour - 2 tbsp

Sugar - 3/4 cup

GMS powder - 1 tbsp, You will get these powders in shops

CMS powder - tbsp, ( I did not add this powder)

Ice Cream essence - 1 tsp


HOW TO MAKE :

Boil the milk in thick bottomed vessel. What i did was I added jackfruit pieces in milk and cooked for a while on low heat. You can add fresh fruits later also without cooking.

Make a paste of corn flour with little milk and keep aside

Mix gms powder and cms powder in little water and keep aside.

Now add fresh cream to the boiled milk, mix well.

Then add sugar, dissolve it continuous  stirring with spoon.

Add ice cream essence, gms and cms powders mix, mix well

Add corn + milk and keep stirring, otherwise lumps will start forming.

Cook for few more minutes stirring continuously. Put off the flame.

If you want to put fresh fruits then add at this stage.

Let it cool.

Blend well in a blender for 10 -15 minutes.

Pour in plastic container and keep the freezer for 5-6 hours.

After 5-6 hours take out the container, then again blend for 15 to 20 minutes. If you blend more your ice cream will be more creamy and soft.

Pour back again in the container, close the lid and keep in the freezer for 5-6 hours or till it is set.

Serve Jack Fruit ice cream as deserts in bowls.
