How to make Vanilla Ice Cream
Milk – 2 1/2 cup or 1/2 liter (full fat milk)
Granulated white Sugar – 3/4 cup
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
Cornflour – 1 tbsp
Gelatin – 1 tsp
Dairy cream – 1 cup (ready made or homemade)*
Keep the freeze setting in maximum.
Mix cornflour in 2 tbsp of cold milk and keep it ready.
Soak gelatin in 2 tbsp lukewarm water for 5 minutes. Then stir it over a bowl of warm water until it dissolves.
Boil milk until it reduces a little.This is done to prevent ice crystal formation.
Add sugar and stir until sugar dissolves.
You can beat 2-3 times. This is done to get creamier ice cream.
Your homemade ice cream is ready once it sets. Allow it to thaw for 5 minutes before serving.
You can jazz up ice cream with tutti frutti, toasted nuts,chopped fruits or crumbled cookies and enjoy!!

Here is some info about gelatin. For vegetarians better not to have food containg gelatin.
Gelatin is protein obtained by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones with water. It is usually obtained from cows or pigs. Gelatin is used in shampoos, face masks, and other cosmetics; as a thickener for fruit gelatins and puddings (such as Jell-O); in candies, marshmallows, cakes, ice cream, and yogurts; on photographic film; in vitamins as a coating and as capsules; and it is sometimes used to assist in "clearing" wines. Gelatin is not vegan. However, there is a product called agar agar that is sometimes marketed as "gelatin," but it is vegan–it is derived from a type of seaweed.
aaaw.. that is so tempting.. yummy.. 🙂
A perfect tempting ice cream.
"Soak gelatin in 2 tbsp lukewarm water for 5 minutes. Then stir it over a bowl of warm water until it dissolves."
How much is this bowl of warm water? I mean the measure of it.
Jaccob Ninan – Just half a cup of warm water
can we use agar agar powder instead of gelatin?
Hi Padhu, I got strips of agar agar from the market. I didn’t get it in powder form. How do I use it? Thanks
Tear the strips into small pieces. Dissolve it in a little hot water by bringing it to a boil over medium heat. Then simmer for a few minutes.Cool it and use it. For more details refer http://www.wikihow.com/Use-Agar-Agar
hi padhu, i made this vanila icecream.it came out very creamier.i cant believe it.i have tried so many recipes but ended up with kara kara textured icecream only.i didnt get fresh cream,so i didnt use it.i used china grass strips.
thank u for the recipe.i feel extremely happy.because i was trying madly to get the right consistency.
Hii padhu.. I really want to make this ice cream.. But i don't have dairy cream.. Can i use sour cream instead of that..??
Thanks in advance..
You can use fresh home made cream that you collect from the milk. Boil milk, cool it and keep it inside the fridge. Next day you will find a layer of cream on the top. Collect that cream and keep it in the freezer. Use it whenever required.
hii padhu what about the corn mixed in cold milk. when to add
Kindly read the 2 nd sentence under "Preparation" and 3 rd sentence under "Method". I have written clearly to mix cornflour.
Incase we using agar agar then how much quantity is required?I have white stripes of china grass.
Tear and use 3-4 bits (around 1 tbsp bits). Soak it in hot water for 10 minutes, boil on low heat for 5-10 minutes stirring continuously. Then when warm, mix it with warm milk.
If it is agar agar powder, substituted the same amount of powdered agar agar for powdered gelatin and cook only for 5 minutes.
Hi. After freezing does this ice cream become solid like commercial ones or just firm.
It will become firm but if you expect whatever you eat in the parlour, it may not be as much as you think. But be satisfied that if you prepare it, it is definitely going to be healthy and safe 🙂
Today I have tried preparing it. It came out like jelly. What will be the mistake i have made?
You must use full fat cream. If you follow the steps above, it is unlikely to turn to a jelly.
Thanks Padhu. I have tried it again, it came out really excellent 🙂
can i use whipping cream instead full fat cream?
I think you can use it but as I have not tried it, I am not sure about the result.
Thanks again for an easy recipe which turned out excellent and my son really loves it…
I have a question:
For strawberry ice cream, can I use the same recipe with strawberry essence instead of vanilla essence? If so, what should be done for getting the pink colour? Pls explain…
Thanks and regards
Glad to know that your son loved it. For strawberry ice cream, you can add strawberry essence, a drop of red color and even a little strawberry puree. Scrap the skin of strawberry, remove the seed.Boil little water and add the strawberries.Mash it well and filter it. You can add this puree also.
Thanks for your timely reply…
Pls tell me what is to be brought from the shop for the pink colour..
Ask for food color with ISI mark. The best is to avoid food color and use strawberries alone.
Yes it can be use for mango icecream also. Add mango puree, when you add fresh cream. You can add approximately 1/2 cup. Do not omit agar agar/gelatin as it helps the ice cream to set.
