  • 2 tablespoons Corn flour (corn starch)
  • 3 tablespoons Full fat milk powder (aka mawa powder)
  • 4 ¼ cups Milk about 1 litre
  • ½ to 2/3 cups White granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Heavy whipping cream 30-35% fat content
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla paste *Instead of vanilla paste, you can use 1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract or seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean



  • Take cornstarch in a small bowl.
  • Make smooth paste by adding 2-3 tablespoons of milk. Keep it aside.
  • Take milk powder in another small bowl.
  • Add about 1/3 cup of milk and make smooth paste.

Making vanilla ice cream recipe:

  • Take remaining milk in a wide and thick bottom pan.
  • Turn the heat on medium. Bring the milk to a boil. Do stir occasionally.
  • Once it starts simmering, add sugar and mix well.
  • Let it simmer till it thickens slightly (for about 10-12 minutes). Do scrap the side and bottom of the pan using spatula every now and then.
  • Now add prepared cornstarch mixture and stir well.
  • Also add milk powder paste and mix.
  • Keep stirring and cooking for 7-8 minutes or till it becomes thick.
  • The mixture should coat the back of spoon or spatula.
  • At that point, turn off the stove.
  • Remove the thick, sweetened mix mixture into a bowl and let it cool completely.
  • As it cools it will thicken more. If it looks lumpy after cooling down, you can use wire whisk or hand mixer or blender to break the lumps and make smooth mixture.
  • Add heavy cream. And mix well.
  • Now using hand mixer, beat the mixture.
  • Beat it for about 4-5 minutes or till it gets light and airy.
  • Now add vanilla paste or vanilla extract (whatever you are using). Stir well to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into shallow container.
  • Cover the surface using plastic wrap and make sure that plastic is touching the ice cream mixture.
  • Pop in the freeze and let it set for 3-4 hours. Within this time, it should be just set still soft.
  • Remove the container from the freezer, make big slices or cubes.
  • Add it to the blender. Blend it till the mixture gets smooth and ice crystals are broken.
  • Pour the mixture back into the container.
  • Again cover with plastic and it should be touching to the surface.
  • Keep in the freezer till it is completely set.
  • At the time of serving, remove the container from the freezer
  • and let it stand for 2 minutes. Then scoop the vanilla ice cream ans serve
