Gadbad Ice cream

Gadbad Ice cream is a famous dessert of Karnataka. As I read in Wiki, its the signature dish of a ice cream parlour based at Mangalore. Me and my Hubby both are big fans of Gadbad Ice cream. Every time we visit our native place Sirsi, we will visit the ice cream parlour at least 2 - 3 times just to enjoy Gadbad Ice cream!
Layers of chopped fruits, ice cream jelly, dry fruits and nuts make this ice cream delicious and rich in taste. I love to prepare Gadbad Ice cream at home when I have ripened mangoes in my pantry. Try this delicious ice cream and let me know your feedback!


Preparation time: 30 - 35 minutes
Refrigeration time: 1 hour

Difficulty level: Medium

Ingredients:
  • Ripened mango - 1
  • Apple - half slice
  • Banana - 1

  • Cherries (for decoration) - 2
  • Tutti frutti (optional) - 2 to 3 tbsp

  • Meanwhile, dry roast the broken cashews into golden brown and keep aside.
  • Take 2 serving glasses. Add one layer of chopped fresh fruits in both the glasses. Top it with raisins and cashews. You can also add tutti frutti. Add around 2 tbsp of ice cream on its top. Repeat these layers again one or two times as per your wish. 
  • After you add the final layer of ice cream, garnish it with raisins, cashews and tutti frutti. Top it with cherry and serve immediately.


Tips:
  • Orange, sapota (chikkoo) and pineapple fruits also go well for this ice cream. Fruits which I have mentioned in the recipe are not compulsory; You can try it with your favorite combo of fruits.
  • You can add different flavors of ice cream for each layer to make it rich and more colorful.
