Oats Ice Cream

Standard

I use to prepare oats frequently at home for breakfast, but recently I have never tried anything new or not even a usual brekkie with oats. And so got to find it in a large quantity in stock at home, due to some health issues I want to make my move towards oats. But apart from everything thought of making something innovative, there strike my ice-cream mania. Moreover this ice cream is completely different from other ice-cream, as I have added eggs. May be we can call it a non-veg or egg dish, but  I am sure, not a vegetarian ice-cream.

Oats Ice Cream is very easy, simple, healthy, heavenly dessert. Let me share the recipe…

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #123 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.

  • In a separate bowl, whisk all the egg yolks together, pour in the warm milk to the egg mixture, mix it well. Transfer this mixture to a sauce pan, keep on stirring until it thickens and the raw smell of egg goes off.
  • Remove it from fire, pour in the vanilla essence and whisk gently, be sure no lumps should be formed. Keep it aside and wait until it reaches the room temperature.
  • Pour the egg mixture to the milk mixture, mix it well. Add in ¾ the portion of the oats crumble and mix them well.
  • Transfer it an air-tight container and chill it in refrigerator for almost 6 hrs or overnight.
  • Remove the container and pour the mixture to the blender and blend it in minimum speed, sprinkle ½ the portion of the leftover oats crumble, transfer it to an air-tight container and freeze it for 6 hrs or until it freezes.

Served chilled with Oats crumble on the top.

Shahi tukda / Shahi tukra

Standard

Shahi tukda or Shahi tukra is a rich mughalai dessert in the traditional way. Shahi means “royal” and tukda/tukra means “a piece”. It is rich in aroma,flavor and calories.

This can be served warm or chilled, particularly meant for festive occasions.

  • Sugar syrup (warm) – 2 cups
  • White/Whole wheat Bread – 6 slices
  • Pistachios – 5 nos
  • Almond/Badam – 5 nos
  • Ghee/Clarified butter – 2 tbsp

Preparation:

  • Boil 2 cups of water, add in the pistachios and badam/almonds. cook until their skin oozes, remove from fire, drain the water, pour in 2 cups of tap water, peel the skin and keep it aside.
  • Heat a tbsp. of ghee/clarified butter in a tawa, halve the bread slices to triangle shape, toast the bread slices until they turn golden brown or dark brown.
  • Remove the bread slices, dip them in the sugar syrup and transfer them to a plate.
  • Arrange the bread slices in a serving plate, pour in 2 cups of rabdi and garnish them with finely chopped pista/pistachios, badam/almond and few strands of saffron.

Serve hot or at room temperature or chilled.
