2 1/2 cups milk

1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup (100 grams) fresh cream

  3. In a non-stick pan, combine the milk and sugar and bring it to a boil.
  4. Add the custard powder mixture and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes till the custard is thick. Strain the mixture if it appears lumpy.
  5. Cool completely, add the cream and apricots and mix well.
  6. Pour into a shallow container and cover and freeze till it is almost set.
  7. Divide it into 2 batches and churn each batch separately in a blender till the ice-crystals break down.
