I know I have been posting a lot of dessert recipes over the last few weeks, but like, I can’t help it.
IT’S SO DAMN HOT.
Let me set the scene on this new ice cream dessert recipe.
When I was a kid in India my family’s home had a mango tree growing in the back yard. I remember trying to jump to try and pick a mango off the tree.
My uncle would often come behind me with a large stick and knock down the ripened mangoes.
Mangoes are such a big part of Indian culture using it so many different ways, including one of my favorite ways, ras. Keri nu ras.
Keri = mango and ras which translates to pulp or juice in English, is a Guju summer fave and made from mangos, milk and sugar!
What is one thing you know that is made of milk and sugar?
ICE CREAM. DUH.
Traditionally we would add a little cardamom or ginger to the rus, but for my version of Keri nu ras ice cream, I added in a little red chili powder to bring a little heat to the sweet mangoes.
This is a no churn ice cream, so little work is required. Just puree, whip, mix and freeze.
You could easily add whole pieces of mango into to the ice cream ( I like to add it on top), or throw in other fruit’s, like berries, which bring a nice acid to the sweet mangoes.
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
