Mango Ice Cream

Summer means mango season in India. Everywhere you go you will see tons of different varieties of mangoes floating around in markets. We used to visit our grandparents every year in summer and used to look forward to eating delicious mangoes picked from our backyard. Every night we all kids will try to sleep early so that we can get up as early as possible and go out and get the mangoes from backyard which are fallen down from trees. And my uncle used to keep competition between us cousins as who gets the maximum mangoes. And the whole day we will eat these fruit without eating anything else. There’s something great and wonderful to have your own picked fruit and enjoy its goodness which I can’t describe in words here.

Apart from mangoes, we used to enjoy ice creams a lot. Sometimes uncle used to make fresh homemade ice cream for us and sometimes we used to get it from ice cream vendor who used to come on cycle with a big thermal box tied behind on his back seat. We were not allowed to eat ice cream from him because everyone used to say that he might not be using good water for making them. I don’t know there were lot of speculation from where he gets his water and all. But for us it used to be the best ice creams candies ever. He always used to come in afternoons around 2 or 3 clock. See I still remember the time…good old memories..all treasured!!

Everyone in the family used to take afternoon nap at that time except my Baba (grand father). Even if he was sleeping and hears the bell of the ice cream vendors cycle…kring…kring…, Baba will get up and call the ice cream wala for us. And of course you can figure out the next…we used to sit, quietly and try to finish the candy as soon as possible before anyone gets up. But mom always finds out that we had ice cream by just looking at our lips and mouth which would be colored. 🙂 🙂

  • After two hours, take out the bowl from freezer and beat the same. Again, cover the ice cream with plastic wrap tightly and keep it in freezer. Repeat this step couple of more times.
  • Before completely freezing it, transfer the ice cream to a air-tight container and freeze it overnight.
  • Remove the ice cream from freezer and leave the same on counter for 5-10 minutes before serving.
