Deep Fried Ice Cream

A sensational dessert that you will never forget the delicious taste of that is a deep fried ice cream.

Basically it is ice cream balls covered with bread crumbs or corn flakes and is quickly deep fried and result is a crispy outside and cold ice cream inside.

First time when I heard about deep fried ice cream, I just became amazed and could not believe. Over and over I asked but how it is possible to fry ice cream specially dee fry in high heat?? !!! but when I saw and when I tasted, oh my gosh, it was piece of heaven in the plate. Just delicious.

You will need several hours to prepare and make it, as it should freeze two times and that’s why it will need several hours.

You can use bread crumbs, corn flakes, ground cookies or slices of cake for covering the ice cream balls.

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am an archaeologist, photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
