Coffee Crunch Ice Cream With Chocolate Chips...step by step.




Coffee crunch ice cream with chocolate chips is my latest addition to my ice cream variations; after vanilla bean ice cream, mango ice cream, and strawberry ice cream. This creamy eggless ice cream recipe is so easy to put together that I love trying out different flavors.

Coffee lovers, how would you love to have coffee ice cream with chocolate chips and praline crunch....yum... the goodness of coffee+chocolate+praline= heaven...... the bits and crumbs of praline in between.....plus the chocolate chips....oh my God! is what I felt when it hit my tastebuds....I still could not make out whether praline tastes caramely or butterscotchy....it was so rocking good that my kids had a fight over this ......and when my son had the 3rd scoop I knew this is damn good!! ha!

Easy homemade eggless ice cream..... no ice cream maker needed....isn't that cool.

Warning Note: This is a lengthy post with lots of step by step pics....but its worth it!

Ingredients:
Nescafe: 2 tsp heaped.
Every day milk powder: 200 gm (you can use any brand, but I will just stick to Everyday (nestle).
Cream: 200 ml (I used, 1 packet amul cream)
Milk: 1 cup, I used skimmed.
Sugar: 1/4 cup.

Praline: About 1 cup, crushed.
Chocolate chips: 1 cup.
A dollop of butter.
An aluminum foil container or greased butter paper.

Method:
Warm milk, and add nescafe and keep aside to cool down.


Into a blender, add in the milk powder (200 g).


Add in 200 ml cream.


And 1/4 cup sugar.


Add in the 1 cup of coffee/milk.


And blend for a minute or two.


Pour this in a container and freeze.


After 1 hour, take it out and whisk with a fork....you should repeat it 2 to 4 times, remember, we are not using an ice cream maker.....so we have to whisk to break the crystals and make the ice cream smooth and silky.


While it is in the freezer; lets make the praline crumbs, the "crunch" in the ice cream. I am making without any nuts....just sugar caramel ...I have a post entirely on praline too...grease an aluminum foil container with little butter and keep aside.


Heat a deep bottomed saucepan with 1 cup of sugar.


Once it starts to brown, simmer the fire and when it is fully melted add in a dollop of butter...switch off the fire (pls go to my how to make praline post; for detailed instructions).


Pour this hot caramel lava into the greased aluminum foil container.


Allow it to come to room temperature....usually while making praline, nuts is added.....but here I am omitting them.


Once it comes to room temp.....you can simply take it out....oops sorry for the un-manicured hand finger :)


Simply close the foil container and smash it with a meat tenderizer or rolling pin...


Open the container and you will get pure caramel crumbs aka praline.


Mix half of this into your creamy almost set ice cream and mix well.....you should only add praline crumbs once the ice cream has almost set otherwise it will sink in. (bottle and refrigerate the other half for later use)


Mix....mix....mix


Add in 1 cup of chocolate chips (because of the heat here; the chips sort of melted slightly),so don't mind that :) again put this pure goodness into the freezer and allow it to freeze overnight (preferably)....or until it is frozen


Scoop out and serve....coffee + chocolate chips + caramel crunch.....all the goodness in one scoop.
Enjoy.

  4. Nisa, love your step by step photos!!! One doubt - at what time intervals do we need to whisk - 1 hour, 2 hours?? Also, is it necessary to use a fork? How about a hand balloon whisk?

    1. Fab-You can use any whisk, balloon, or hand held beater......there is no rule for whisking... the more you whisk the creamier the ice cream will be. I whisk once it begins to set ...then again repeat, maybe every 2 hours or so will be fine.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe! Ah yes, like always this is amma's recipe. It is her signature, no-fail recipe. of caramel custard.



Okay lets talk about this pudding!!  I used 4 eggs because amma said so eggs are the show stopper here :)......it is needed to make the pudding silky-satin, and stand tall....and yes it will not crumble.....now you may wonder....won't this be eggy!!smelly!! I promise it won't....there wouldn't be too much eggy flavor! caramel flavor can do wonders!! Believe me!!



I am using my steamer or appachembu as it is known locally to cook the pudding. While the pudding is steaming, it is important that once steam comes, …
