Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 30 mins
Freezing Time : 12 to 15 hours

Ingredients:

Milk - 500 ml

For Caramelizing Figs:

Figs - around 15 to 20
Sugar - 1/2 cup

Method:

Chop figs into fine pieces. Set aside.


Start by caramelizing the figs. Take sugar and water in a pan and mix well. Heat it till sugar is melted. Bring it to a boil and cook till sugar is well caramelized. 

Once it turns nice and golden, add in figs and mix well in the caramel. Cook till figs get soft and well coated. Remove to a bowl.

Now take cornflour in a bowl and add in few tblspn of milk. Mix well and set aside.

Take milk in a pan, add in sugar and mix well. bring it to a boil.

Once it boils, simmer the flame and add in cornflour mix in. Keep whisking.

Now the mix will get thick.

Take this off the heat and pour this over the figs, add in cream and whisk really well.

Now add in vanilla essence nad mix well.

Cool this mix, pour this into freezer safe container and store it in freezer for 4 to 6 hours. Once it is semi set, take it in a blender and blend it till it gets frothy and creamy. Pour this back into the bowl and freeze for another 4 hours. Repeat the process for another 2 times. This makes this icecream really creamy.

Finally once it is frozen, scoop the icecream using a scoop and serve.
