Yes, here were tell you how to make the ever-popular Butterscotch Ice-Cream! Loved by kids and adults alike, this rich ice-cream has a mellow flavour balanced wonderfully by the sweet crunch of the crushed praline. The praline, made with cashews and sugar, gives a delectable texture and rich flavour to the ice-cream. Relish this treat slow and steady, hunting out the praline chunks in each mouthful and biting into them slowly to let their flavour swirl into the rest of the ice-cream creating magic on your palate.

Tarla Dalal    We advice you to use it as it gives body to the ice cream. We are very sorry we have not tried this ice cream without milk powder so we do not want to suggest any alternative

Butterscotch ice- cream, just made exactly how you get in the market, with rich taste of caramalised cahewnuts, which gives a nice crunch to the ice cream. This was loved by all in my house.
