Preparation Time: 30 mins.
Cooking Time: 5 mins.
8 scoops of vanilla ice-cream
1 cup milk
fresh bread crumbs to coat
oil for deep-frying
For the butterscotch sauce
- Heat the sugar in a non-stick pan and allow it to caramelize to a light brown colour.
- Remove from the flame and add ¼ cup of hot water. Place on a slow flame and make a syrup of one string consistency.
- Add the butter and cream and mix well.
- Allow it to simmer for 5 to 7 minutes till the sauce is of a honey consistency.
- Cool completely and keep aside.
How to proceed
- Line a tray with butter paper. Adjust your fridge temperature to low.
- Place the scoops on the tray at 25 mm (1″) distance and keep in the freezer till they harden.
- Dip the hardened ice-cream balls in milk and roll in bread crumbs till coated properly.
- Put them back in the freezer to harden.
- Coat the ice-cream balls for about 3 to 4 times till a thick coating is achieved.
- Heat oil on high flame in a kadai.
- Remove ice cream balls from fridge (only 2 at a time) and dip in hot oil, make sure the balls are completely immersed in the oil. Don’t turn them while frying, just dip and remove.
- When balls turn golden colour remove and serve immediately with butterscotch sauce. Repeat for the remaining ice cream to make more balls.
- Crushed cornflakes / desiccated coconut also make great coatings.
- Ensure that fried ice-cream is consumed immediately.
