Fried Ice Cream
A first time for me, I was curious like a kid how the stuff would look like. (A unique dessert: I learned later, it was first served during the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. Wiki also mentions: in 1894, a Philadelphia company was given credit for its invention. This dessert is associated with Asian cuisine.)
At the bloggers’ review meet at Mango Tree BristoBar, a restaurant in Bangalore, we were served this dessert. Though it was served at the end, I decided to give this single item a special mention.
The waiter got this golden colored fried ball on a platter. The cold ice cream is all cuddled up inside this warm golden coating.
Mmmm… It takes a heart to slice it! But slice, we did!
Ice cream inside was still firm. Now the most eagerly awaited step; scooping the cream and cutting a bit of coating along with it. Inside the mouth it is a combination of hot and crunchy crust along with sweet and cold cream. All my taste buds were going crazy trying to taste the actual taste.
Sorry to tempt you so friends, but grab it the first chance you get! It is differently heavenly!
