Yes, here were tell you how to make the ever-popular Butterscotch Ice-Cream! Loved by kids and adults alike, this rich ice-cream has a mellow flavour balanced wonderfully by the sweet crunch of the crushed praline. The praline, made with cashews and sugar, gives a delectable texture and rich flavour to the ice-cream. Relish this treat slow and steady, hunting out the praline chunks in each mouthful and biting into them slowly to let their flavour swirl into the rest of the ice-cream creating magic on your palate.


For the praline
Sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Powdered cashewnuts 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Butter 1 Teaspoon
Oil 1 Teaspoon (for greasing)
For the ice cream:
Milk 2 1/2 Cup (40 tbs)
Condensed milk 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Powdered sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Milk powder 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Butterscotch essence 1/2 Teaspoon



For the praline:

1. Heat the sugar in a broad non-stick pan and cook on a medium flame for 5 to7 minutes or till the sugar melts, while stirring continuously.

2. Remove from the flame, add the cashewnuts and butter and mix well.

3. Grease a flat, smooth surface with a little oil, spread the mixture on it and allow it to cool and harden.

4. Scrape it out using a palate knife and coarsely powder it using a mortar-pestle (khalbatta). Keep aside.

For the ice-cream:

5. Combine all the ingredients, except the butterscotch essence, and whisk together so that no lumps remain.

6. Bring to boil in a non-stick pan and simmer for 7 minutes, while stirring continuously and scrapping the sides of the pan.

8. Pour the mixture into a shallow aluminium container. Cover with an aluminium foil and store in the freezer compartment for 6 hours or till semi-set.
