how to make vanilla ice cream recipe

making custard sauce for vanilla ice cream

  1. before you begin, set the temperature in your fridge to its highest cold setting. in a small bowl, take 2 tbsp milk and 3 tsp corn starch. substitutions for corn starch are arrow root flour and rice flour. mix to a smooth paste.
  2. in a saucepan or pan, take 1.5 cups full cream milk or full fat milk. add 1/2 cup sugar.
  3. keep this pan on the gas stove and begin to heat it. stir so that the sugar dissolves.
  4. when the milk becomes slightly hot, add the corn starch paste gradually.
  5. stir quickly so that lumps are not formed.
  6. simmer on a low to medium flame, till the milk thickens.
  7. the custard sauce should coat the back of a spoon.
  8. take the custard sauce in a bowl and allow it to become warm or cool down. then keep in the freezer for 45 minutes to an hour.
  9. remove from the fridge. change the temperature setting of your fridge back to the earlier one.
  10. with an electric beater, beat the custard sauce till it increases a bit in volume. beat on a medium to high speed for 1 to 2 minutes.

whipping fresh cream

  1. in another bowl, take about 3/4 cup chilled fresh cream. you could use heavy whipping cream or 25% to 35% low fat cream. even malai (cream that floats on top of milk can be used). like always i used amul cream.
  2. now begin to whip the cream on medium to high speed. whip till you get soft peaks.
  3. add 3 tsp pure vanilla extract. here i used homemade vanilla extract. you can also add seeds from 1 or 2 vanilla beans.

making vanilla ice cream mixture

  1. then add beaten thickened milk to the whipped cream + vanilla mixture.
  2. fold lightly taking care that the ice cream mixture holds the volume and does not fall flat.
  3. cover the bowl tightly with a lid or aluminium foil or cling film. keep in the fridge.
  4. when the vanilla ice cream is semi set after 4 to 5 hours, remove and whip again very well in the same bowl. cover again tightly and keep in the freezer for vanilla ice cream to set.

  5. when the vanilla ice cream is well set, scoop and serve in bowls or plates. you can top the ice cream with any syrup or fruits or serve it plain.

recipe notes

substitutions you can make in vanilla ice cream:
  • corn starch - rice flour or arrow root flour.

  2. I tried your kulfi recipe.
    Came out really good.
    Feeling happy.

    • thanks rejni for the feedback on kulfi recipe. nice to know.

  3. Hmmm Your vanilla ice cream looks yummy! I have one question: How to make whipping cream?

    • thanks. whipping cream can be made at home by freezing over a few weeks the clotted cream that collects on top of milk when it is boiled. you will have to keep on adding layers of clotted cream from boiled milk and then keep in the freezer in a covered box. we call this clotted cream as malai in hindi language. before you make cream, remove the box from the freezer and keep in refrigerator overnight. next day, using a food processor with whipping attachment of a mixer or a stand mixer, beat the cream. first the cream will become smooth and liquid. this cream can be refrigerated again and used for curries or gravies. if you continue to beat the cream, then the cream will start becoming thick and have soft peaks first, followed by stiff peaks. now the cream is ready and can be used to make ice cream of whipped cream frostings for cakes or cup cakes.

    • welcome nisha. i do not have any recipe for coffee ice cream. will try to add.

  8. Hi Dassana,
    I have simply fallen in love with your blog. I’m sort of addicted to it for the past two weeks and have been writing down you recipes ever since. This is probably because I’m a little stressed now and visiting your blog kind of refreshes me. I must say you make the dishes seem a lot easy than what they usually are and a lot of my favourite dishes from your blog are waiting to made. And definitely, when I read about you in the ‘About Us’ column, I couldn’t believe you were pretty young to have such an elaborate knowledge on cooking and making so many dishes. When I had been reading your recipes before I saw your picture, I imagined you to be much older (sorry about that 😉 ), as the recipes, dishes and method of cooking seemed to ask for a lot of experience. And your lifestyle is very relishing too, with your inclination to spirituality, adapting very healthy ways of food (going organic,vegetarian and vegan) as I myself have adapted to these ways of living. Holding on to a spiritual path and staying a vegetarian and going organic are soooo…life changing. I wish both you and Amit lots of goodness and do keep the work going 🙂

    • thank you very much indira for this lovely and beautiful comment. i am so happy that reading the blog refreshes you. honestly speaking, even when i read my own recipes and words at times, i also feel refreshed and good. in fact at times i cannot believe that i have written or taken the pics. sometimes its the shakti which makes you do things and you know you are doing it, but you don’t see or feel the grace in your work. then later when you see your work and you are like, how did this happen or really did i write this way.

      i started very young. cooking was a hobby from a young age and a degree in home science, did ignite the passion further. but i was happy cooking once in a while or on weekends, when working in the teaching and then later in the corporate sector. i never know that this blog would inspire so many people from all age groups. it was nothing short of a miracle.

      its always better to live a balanced life. some exercise or yoga, healthy food, some meditation, loving what you do, being sincere and true, having an empathetic and loving relationships with your family & friends, does make a big difference.

      also thanks a lot for your wishes.
