Now a party is not a party without ice cream right! If it was left to me, I would only go for a chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce and chocolate chips on top. How is that for a chocolate dose?
Anyway, this is not just my party for my kids. I need to think about other kids, who might, yes might like other flavours as well right. So while I was planning on my menu, I decided I would make Ice creams with other flavours.
I came across this recipe while I was searching for Persian dishes. The Persian Halva was a hit, so I knew I could easily make this as well. I read she said that her version was not creamy. Now there are times when I like crunchy ice creams and there are times I am a sucker for creamy ice creams.
This was the time, so I had to modify the recipe using my own method. The lemon juice gives a nice tart taste, while the condensed milk and the cream took care of the creaminess.
While making the ice cream, the pomegranate colour wasn't visible. I was hoping it will turn into a beautiful pink shade. However, it sort of ended up as a lavender shade. But if you ask my kids, they would've said they didn't bother. All they wanted was to attack this.
This was the first time, my boys visibly showed interest in a dessert/ Ice cream other than chocolate. They even buttered me well, saying if I make it, they are ready to eat any flavour. Mind you, this is only in ice creams and not other regular food. I gave a serving to Hubby dear too and he was asking for it after a couple of days. I gave him a look that should have made it clear to him, that he was crazy to ask for it after a couple of days.
This is surely such delicious ice cream. The lemon juice is not to be missed, it surely gives a different kick when you dig your teeth into the first bite!
Make sure you use an airtight box, both Tupperware or aluminum works fine.
I mostly blend my ice creams in between. However I didn't do it this time, yet it came out soft without crystals.
