Course: Dessert
Servings: 4


  • 1 litre full fat milk
  • 8 tbsp sugar granulated
  • tbsp cornflour
  • 200 gram fresh cream
  • 4 tsp peppermint crushed
  • 8 tbsp tender coconut finely chopped
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract


  • Drink a coconut. Ask the vendor to remove & give you 'malai' or tender flesh of coconut. Bring it home, chop it into fine pieces. I loved writing this step.
  • Dissolve cornflour in 50 ml milk & set aside.
  • Boil the remaining milk in a thick bottom pan. When it is boiled, add cornflour-milk slowly, stirring continuously. Now add sugar & mix till uniform.
  • Simmer for another 4-5 mins, continue stirring.
  • Remove from flame and allow to cool completely.
  • When cool, add the cream, vanilla essence, peppermint & tender coconut. Mix. Transfer to a shallow container & freeze till slushy - about 7-8 hours.
  • Divide the ice-cream in 2 batches & churn each batch separately in a blender till smooth. Transfer back to the shallow container.
  • Freeze till set completely.


  1. The coconut flesh should neither be too firm nor too soft.
  2. You can use peppermint candy like polo or minto.
