This is a simple dessert with homemade ice-cream and store bought Gulab Jamun mix.
1 pkt Gulab Jamun mix (I used MTR)
For the ice-cream
2 cups milk
1/2 cup cream
1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar (depending on taste)
3-4 tbsp roasted crushed badam pista mix ( I had this previously prepared and stored in an airtight container)
1 tsp cornflour/cornstarch
2-3 tbsp milk powder
2-3 strands of saffron
Mix together milk, milk powder, cornflour and sugar together in a thick bottomed vessel. Use a whisk to mix well to make sure that there are no lumps.
Place this on the stove on low heat stirring constantly. Add the crushed nuts and saffron. Cook on low heat stirring continuously until the mixture has thickened to form a custard.
Cool to room temperature. Once it has cooled down completely, add the cream and blend well in a blender until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Pour this into a freezer safe container and freeze overnight.
Prepare Gulab Jamuns as per instructions on the package and soak in sugar syrup.
Add 2 scoops of ice-cream to a serving bowl and top it with hot Gulab Jamun.
